An 88-year-old Ghanaian man is pleading with the team behind Nhyira FM's magazine show, Obra, to help him to find a wife.

Kofi Amoateng is unable to tell how long his last wife has been dead but recounts she was run over by a vehicle in the line of work as a yam seller in Kumasi.

The relationship of many years produced ten children, some of whom the retired electrical engineer says have been good to him, though he refused to speak of others.

Mr. Amoateng says living alone has been very difficult, but he has endured loneliness until now.

He left panelist on the show almost cracking their ribs with uncontrolled laughter when he touted his potency and readiness to satisfy any woman who would want to join him on the journey of life.

Mr. Amoateng spoke to host of Obra, Mama Efe Amanor, after he and other widows and widowers received a donation from Nhyira FM.

He is the first male beneficiary of the two-year old annual gesture by the station every February.

Men had been reluctant to register to receive support from the station's initiative meant for both male and females.

February is regarded as the month of love, and the station, through its human-centered Obra show, decided to put smiles on the faces of people who have lost their spouses.

The station, with support from some listeners in and outside the country, donated pieces of wax prints, undisclosed sums of money and food to the widows and widowers. - African Spotlight.
