Each birthday might bring us closer to the end of our life on this planet but we celebrate it anyway because everyday we escape death must be a celebration.
In essence, leaving a mark in the lives and minds of people becomes the purpose of many in life. If done the right way, the people that accomplish this task are forever remembered by all. That’s why we still celebrate the birthdays of people like Kwame Nkrumah, Kofi Annan, John Agyeman Kuffour etc. One of the people worth celebrating is His Excellency Mahamudu Bawumia who turns 58 today.
Born on October 7,1963 in Tamale, Bawumia is now widely regarded as one of Ghana’s most powerful, combative and controversial figures in Ghanaian politics. He is an economist, banker and he assumed office as the Vice President of Ghana on 7th January 2017 alongside President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuafo Addo.
Bawumia schooled in Buckingham University Lincoln College in The UK and Oxford Simon Fraser University in the USA. He was the Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana until his nomination as president the Vice Presidential candidate. He is currently married to Mrs. Samira Bawumia with whom he has 4 kids.
In September 2021, Bawumia donated GH¢50,000 to Psalm Adjeteyfio popularly and affectionately called T.T, to take care of his rent and upkeep after he was seen in a video talking about how difficult life has been for him after retirement from acting and after COVID hit.
Happy Birthday to Vice President of Ghana, His Excellency Mahamudu Bawumia!
