Release Male prisoners to marry us – Women begs President Nana Addo Dankwah.
Some women living in Assin Fosu in the Central region are pleading for clemency for male prison inmates in the region.
The motive for the appeal, the woman revealed is to solve the woman to man ratio in the region.
Some of the women in an interview on Gh Voice Radio revealed that majority of them are single and are being pressured by their families to marry before the end of the year.
The situation, some of the women said has become dire causing them to sleep with married men.
Those who are single mothers also disclosed that the few men in the area have shirked their responsibilities due to the keen competition among the women in the area.
The only option left, the women stressed is for President Akufo-Addo to release the male prisoners for them to marry.
“The men in the prison are more than the men in our town so please release them for us. we will enjoy with them and have a nice family together and so we beg Nana Addo to pardon the prisoners in our region because our town is dying” they bemoaned.
But men in the town are rather blaming the women for not being reasonable with their demands.
“The women in our town are not reasonable in their demand, they are not serious, all they know is to spend our monies and walk away that is why they need prisoners to marry,” one angry man said.
They however dismissed claims by the women that they are not responsible adding that releasing the prisoners will increase crime rate in the region.
