I Will Pay $15,000 Monthly To Any Man Who Will Marry Me Under These Conditions

The Daily Watch Press came into contact with this very rear story and share it with you about a Ghanaian lady who is interested in marrying her but on certain contion for reward.

The lady known as Isabella Johnson, as reported by Kofi Legit which he cites as fictional, revealed that she has been in a lot of relationships which has failed because of hard luck on her side.

According to Isabella, she has made a lot of money from where she works as a result of a connection one of her sugar daddies did for her but she has intentions of settling down once and for all.

However, men who have interest in marrying her must be ready to succumb to her conditions which she outlined on social media.

My name is Isabella Johnson, and I have been living here in Kumasi Ghana since I was little. Initially I was living with my parents, just like few kilometers from my current residence, before I moved into my own personal apartment, here in Kumasi, but I will not disclose the address for security purposes.

Honestly speaking, I have had a lot of relationship which I will say clearly that it has never favoured me. I have dated Young boys and boys of my Age, but It seems like I don’t have luck when it comes to relationships and daring. Most of this boys will promise me heaven and earth for me to accept them, of which I gave them reasons beyond doubt that they will not fail me, but all to no avail. Within 1 year, the relationship will start to crumble, of which what will follow next will be breaking up.

But on dating some old men, I was able to gain access and connection to where I work now, and I earn huge amount of Money every month, as you will be shock to find out how much I earn. But ever since then, I have been single and searching for love.

I have met so many men who claimed to love me, but a long the line I will discover what they want is my money and not Marriage. So I have decided to give any man GHc90,000 monthly to any man who will agree to marry me under this Condition as I state below.

  1. To marry me, you must be a tall handsome gentleman, who knows how to make a lady happy at all times.
  2. To marry me you must know how to cook most of Ghana’s Mouth tasty meals. And your food must always be tasty.
  3. You must be good in all ramifications, both in the other way round (am sure you know what I mean by being good in all Ramifications).
  4. You must always stay at home all day to keep after the house, because I will be the one working and will be paying you GHc90,000 monthly. So there won’t be need for you to go out and work.
  5. You can only hangout with your friends on only Sundays. And if you want to hangout with tour friends, you must include me in your plans because I now have trust issues.
  6. You must not answer any call from any other woman except that of your family members and relations. Nothing like “she is just a friend”, that is unacceptable.
  7. Before a Baby will come and live with us, our babies must have gotten to the age of Juvenile, and any nanny that will come to live with us must be an Old woman, and I will be the one to choose who it will be.
  8. You don’t dare discuss our private lives to your friends, family members, relatives and wellwishers. It is meant to be secret between us.
  9. Under no circumstances or condition should any of your friends past the night in our House. This is our home and not theirs.

For those who wants to try their lucks, the road to Ghana is not too far.

The True Story of Alphonso Davies:

The journey began in Buduburam, a Ghanaian refugee camp, where Davies was born after his parents had fled the civil war in Liberia. Life was fraught with difficulties. The search for clean water, food, simply staying alive; every hour that passed a triumph of survival. There had to be a better way.

“It was hard to live because the only way you survive sometimes is you have to carry guns,” remembers Alphonso’s father, Debeah. “We didn’t have any interest in shooting guns. So, we decided to just escape from there. They have a program called resettlement, and they said ‘OK, you have to fill in a form for Canada.’ We went through the interview and everything, and made it, and came over here.”

The Davies family were able to immigrate to Canada when Alphonso was five, eventually settling in Edmonton, Alberta. Debeah and the family matriarch Victoria worked long hours to make ends meet.

The Gov’t of Ghana Will Rebuild The Demolished Building Belonging To The Nigerian Embassy in Accra, Ghana

Ghana to cede property, documents, rebuild demolished embassy building, says Gbajabiamila


Mr. Lanre Lasisi, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Speaker, House of Representatives, Federal Republic of Nigeria. In a Press Statement from the Office of the Speaker, House of Representatives, released on 26th June, 2020, said:

“Ghana to cede property, documents, rebuild demolished embassy building, says Gbajabiamila

The government of Ghana will rebuild the demolished building belonging to the Nigerian embassy in Accra, Ghana, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has said.

According to Gbajabiamila, the Ghanaian government has also promised to cede the property as well as all documents relating to it to the Nigerian embassy.

Gbajabiamila disclosed this on his official social media pages on Friday where he revealed that the promise was secured through a telephone discussion he had with the Speaker of the Ghanaian Parliament, Rt. Hon. Aaron Mike Oquaye, on Thursday.

The Ghanaian Speaker had assured Speaker Gbajabiamila that the parliament will work with their Executive to ensure the matter is resolved diplomatically.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker, who expressed sadness at the demolition of the embassy structure had promised to take the issue up with his Ghanaian counterpart.

His words on his Twitter page read, “Yesterday (Thursday) I had a good and constructive discussion with His Excellency Rt. Hon. Aaron Mike Oquaye, Speaker of the Ghanaian Parliament. He reassured me of the respect and regard the people of Ghana have for Nigeria.

“He stated the Ghanaian government is taking the demolishment with all seriousness and has taken the following actions: 1) Perpetrators have been arrested and investigation is ongoing; 2) the Property will be ceded and all documents handed over to Nigeria under the Compulsory Acquisition Act of Ghana; 3) the destroyed High Commission quarters will be rebuilt by the government of Ghana”.

According to Gbajabiamila, his Ghanaian counterpart stated firmly that “Ghana will not allow anyone to peril the deep and long relationship between our two countries. Together, we will find sustainable ways to rebuild good relations btw our countries and unite our people in our collective interest as Africans”.

Recall that the Speaker had promised to take the issue up with the Speaker of the Ghanaian parliament while meeting with the Minister of Foreign of Affairs on Tuesday, June 24 at the National Assembly where he declared that the demolition of some part of the nation’s Embassy in Accra was an affront and insult on the sovereignty of the Nigerian nation.

Gbajabiamila expressed sadness at the demolition saying, “I think we should make it clear to the authorities in Ghana that Nigeria is not going to sit down and fold its arms.”

He made it clear at the meeting that Nigeria cannot continue to fold its hands while its citizens and assets in other countries are being attacked by citizens of their host country, while Nigeria look the other way, playing the big brother.

“Attacks on Nigerians in other countries, especially in other African countries has become a recurring decimal in the nation’s foreign policy engagements, adding that many countries within Africa have taken the liberty of hurting Nigerians, while Nigeria looks the other way in the name of brotherhood.

“We all have a responsibility to make sure that we uphold the honour and integrity of the country that we serve. The Minister has explained what happened and what they have done or doing. But I think we should look at it from the premise that it was the Nigerian State that was attacked, not just a building.

“In terms of visibility and otherwise of the property, I want to say that it is trite to understand that all countries exist through their Embassies in other countries. So for that reason, Nigeria was attacked by Ghana because if anything happens in Ghana, it’s the Nigerian Embassy that Nigerians will run to and get protection due to the diplomatic immunity that it should enjoy”. He concluded.

Ghana: A Candidate Who Lost OUT Primary Election Collect Back His Bicycles From Delegates, Party Officials

Daily Watch Press gathered that an aspirant in the just-ended New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary primaries at Assin North constituency has gone back for all the bicycles he donated to delegates after an embarrassing defeat.

Mr. Eric Amankwa Blay had shared 250 bicycles to delegates prior to the election to each of the polling stations in the constituency.

Although he campaigned vigorously across the length and breadth of the constituency, his performance was abysmal when the final results were announced on Saturday.

He secured 44 votes as against the incumbent MP Abena Duruwa Mensah who polled 389 votes.

Obviously disappointed, the results made Mr Blay and his supporters stormed into various houses of delegates across the constituency to retrieve the bicycles shared among party members to cast the ballots in his favour.

The defeated aspirant who spoke to Adom News’ Alfred Amoh said the motive behind the distribution of the bicycles was for campaign purposes.

He said for that matter, failure to endorse his candidature means you don’t like the bicycle.https://389c2f496a2c90645921cb751be14bc3.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

According to him, the unit cost of the bicycle is ¢300. Apart from the bicycles, Mr Blay claims to have shared ¢200 and ¢500 to each delegate and constituency executives to endorse his candidature but failed to do so.

“I’m not taking back the money but as for the bicycles, I need them back,” he said.

Some party delegates and polling station executives who have their bicycles taken back said they were very disappointed.

Ghanaian Said They Need President Buhari In GHANA – Daily Watch Press

Ghanaian Said They Need President Buhari In Ghana – Daily Watch Press

The African Facts Zone reported via its Twitter handle about Nigeria’s status or profile about rice importation and now production, where it stated that:

“Nigeria was the world’s largest importer of rice in 2013. It is now Africa’s largest producer of rice.”

And a Ghanaian, Abdul from Accra, Ghana retwitted that:

“Ghana’s case rather worsened. The total cost of our import jumped from $300 Million in 2016 to $1.2 Billion presently.”

With this kind of news coming from African countries, it appears others are appreciative of what President Buhari is doing in Nigeria at the moment. Therefore, it should be sustained.
