The Vice President of Imani Africa, Kofi Bentil, has touted the political prowess of the vice president of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, describing him as the best on the political scene.
In a 57th birthday wish to Dr. Bawumia, the IMANI executive said there is nothing to hide when it comes to flaunting the expertise of Akufo-Addo’s running mate in the December elections.
“Nothing to hide about the fact that this man is the best on our political scene today,” Bentil remarked on Facebook.
He added: “Happy Birthday to the Husband of Samira.”
Social media has been awash with best wishes for the country’s second gentleman.
Ahead of his birthday, his press corps also surprised him with a gift in his office.
Receiving a portrait from the group ahead of his 57th birthday on Wednesday, October 7, he said, “This is the most touchy gift I have received on my birthday, it’s beautiful, it’s fantastic, I will keep it in my office”.
Charles Takyi Boadu, Dean of the Vice President’s Press Corps, made the presentation on behalf of the group and expressed gratitude to the Vice President for his cordial relations with them.
“We thought it wise as a group of journalists who have been following and providing coverage for the Vice President’s public engagements for almost four years that on his birthday, we should give him a surprise.
“So knowing his love for people who suffer leprosy or lepers, we decided to present a portrait of the Vice President depicting his sense of humanity and love for the vulnerable,” Mr Boadu said.
“And you could see from his face and comments that he was very happy with the gift we presented to him,” he added.
Vice President Bawumia is a patron of the Lepers Aid Ghana and an advocate of cured lepers and has been supporting them with donations over the years.
Dr Bawumia sponsored the construction of a two-bedroom house for an 82-year old cured leper, Madam Daari Pogo, who was abandoned by her family and was sheltering in a mud house in Motori in the Wa West District of the Upper West Region.
Dr Bawumia was born on October 7, 1957 to Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia and Hajia Mariana Bawumia in Tamale.
He was born into a large family and is 12th of his father’s 18 children and the second of his mother’s five children.
