i am married to an EU lady but have Customary certificate of wedding from Ghana, just want to know if i can put my application forward to the home office?

Provided that the marriage is recognised in the country that it took place in, was executed so as to satisfy the requirements of the country’s law and there was no legal restriction on either party marrying then the marriage will be recognised by the uk:-
See 2 on the above link.

Further, see 15.5 on the following link that such customary marriages which are registered are regarded as valid:-

Your marriage will be regarded as valid for the purpose of applying for a family permit
