According to the man, he went beyond financing Mercy’s education, as he also started a business for her mother and fulfilled various financial commitments during the course of their relationship.
As the romance progressed, Otu followed the advice of Mercy’s mother and relocated her to Tema.
In Tema, Otu continued to support Mercy financially, covering the expenses of her Higher National Diploma (HND) program at the Accra Technical University (ATU) and her subsequent degree at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Otu’s financial assistance didn’t end with education; he claims to have supported Mercy’s younger brother and facilitated accommodation for her mother.
The relationship took an unexpected turn when Mercy, after securing a job at a bank in Ghana, decided to end their relationship.
Feeling betrayed by the significant investments he made, Otu has taken the matter to the Kumasi Circuit Court, filing a lawsuit for GH¢350,000 (approximately N26 million).
The lawsuit alleges that Otu’s financial contributions were made under the expectation that the relationship would lead to marriage.
The legal proceedings are reportedly pending, and court sessions have been deferred until February 20, where both parties will have the opportunity to present their cases.
