Blakkpepper understands National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi has married Irene Amankwaa Karikari in a private ceremony today.

The Tse Addo ceremony had in session newly elected chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the defeated chairman as well as John Mahama, the party’s 2022 presidential candidate.

Given the acrimonious exchanges prior to the congress between the two NDC heavyweights, it was a pleasant surprise to see Mr. Nketia, the immediate past general secretary and Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo, the former chairman seated to each other.

It’s emerged the 33-year-old father of one had planned to marry last month but had to execute the deed today after the NDC’s National Delegates Congress where he stood for re-election although his contender was disqualified.
