Former President John Dramani Mahama has congratulated and expressed best wishes for his first son, Shafik Mahama, on his marriage to his Algerian girlfriend, Asma.
Shafik tied the know with his longtime girlfriend in a private wedding ceremony in Dubai on Thursday, July 6, 2020, with videos and photos in circulation on social media.
In an Instagram post, Mahama shared a photo of the new couple to express how proud he feels about his son and his marriage.
He captioned his message as:
Congrats Shafik and Asma. God richly bless your union.
The former president was not present at the wedding perhaps due to the closure of the borders as a measure to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
Social media has been washed with praises and criticisms for Shafik and his Algerian wife, Asma.
