If Mrs. Monica Terlabi, wife of Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower Manya krobo knew that going public with news about her husband’s infidelity could land her in trouble, to the extent of losing her marriage, she would have kept quiet.

Her action, unfortunately, has led to the MP, who is also the Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources sending her packing out of their matrimonial home.

But, Opanin Akwasi Bawuah, father of Mrs. Monica Terlabi has appealed to the Lower Manya Krobo legislator not to send his daughter away.

The 80-year-oldd cocoa farmer pleaded with the MP to forgive his daughter for whatever offences she might have committed against him and accept her back into his home.

Speaking in a telephone interview with this reporter, Hon. Terlabi’s father-in-law paid glowing tribute to his son in-law for his sense of respectfulness, meekness and desire to help others in times of need.

It would be recalled that the Friday February 6, 2015 edition of the Daily Guide newspaper carried a story under the headline, “Minister Dump’s wife over cocaine saga,” which made headlines in the country.

Father of Mrs. Terlabi, however, condemned the action of his daughter, describing it as unfortunate and unacceptable, saying it is regrettable for a person of her social status to allow herself to be dragged into such an issue.

Opanin Bawuah continued that, even though society frowns on infidelity and would also not support it, Monica should not have gone to the extent of washing her dirty linen in public, an action, which according to him, has brought disgrace not only to the minister, but the entire Bawuah family.

“Mr. Terlabi is a good man and we are proud to have him as our son in-law. When I fell sick recently, he came down all the way from Accra to take me to the hospital and also gave me money. He has so far done his best as an in-law and we don’t have any problem with him,” Monica’s father explained.

Opanin Bawuah, therefore, called on the deputy minister for Lands and Natural Resources to treat the matter as one of the many marriage challenges, since there is no marriage on earth without a challenge.

“My young man, there is no marriage on earth without a challenge. I have had my share and I think every married person has received or gone through some of these challenges in marriage, so I beg him,” Mrs. Terlabi’s father said.

The 80-year-old man, nonetheless, insisted that much as he would not wish the two to go their separate ways, he would also not force them to continue with their relationship, if they are no longer interested to continue.
