Former president of Ghana John Agyekum Kufuor and his beautiful wife Theresa Kufuor celebrate 61 years of togetherness!
John Agyekum Kufuor and Theresa tied the knot on September 8, 1962.
The former president once revealed that he married his wife just about one year after they got to know each other.
In an interview, the former president John Agyekum disclosed that they met at a Republic Day Anniversary Dance in 1961 in London. He added that he had just completed his law course the same year Theresa finished her nursing programme in Scotland.
“We got talking at the dance and became friends who got married in 1962 and gave birth to our first child in 1963, the second in 1964,” Myjoyonline quoted him to have said.
With the longevity of the marriage and their beautiful love story, many have often celebrated the couple on their anniversaries. This year’s anniversary has not been different, as many Ghanaians have taken to social media to post them.
One such post by Facebook user Ajiro Paul shows some rare photos of Mr and Mrs Kufuor in their youth. He wrote: “Happy 61st wedding anniversary to President John Agyekum Kufuor and First lady Theresa Kufuor.
May God continue to bless this union.”
