Accra, Aug 10, GNA - A research conducted by Adam Research Centre, an Accra-based Consultancy firm, has indicated that about 25 percent of break ups in love relationships in Ghana were caused by suspicious phone calls and text messages.
It said 33 percent of respondents, who were interviewed, also confessed telling lies to their partners regarding their locations and general movements.
Dr. Karim Adam, Chief Executive Officer of the Centre, disclosed these research findings to Ghana News Agency in Accra.
He said although 67 percent of respondents confirmed that mobile phone had enhanced their relationship, most of them said that phones had also given people the opportunity to tell lies.
Dr Adam, who is an Information Systems Security and IT Governance Consultant, said the Centre used over 800 respondents from all sectors of life in Accra to research on "the Impact of Mobile Phones on Love Relationships in the Country" due to the daily problems that erupted from the use of telephones.
The research indicated that 46.9 percent of respondents said they received their break up news from their partners through text messages, while 26 percent of them indicated that they had heartbreaks as a result of those messages.
Thirty-five percent of the respondents said that they communicated more than thrice a day, while 22 percent of them communicated twice a day.
Forty-five percent of the respondents confirmed quarrelling with their partners over suspicious phone calls and messages more than three times a week….
