Former President of Ghana John Agyekum Kufour has hailed Ghana’s Vice President Dr. Mahamudu describing him as a ‘True Son’
According to the former President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who served as a Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana under his administration has been a loyal son to him and his course since he got to know him.
Former President John Agyekum Kufour praised the head of the country’s Economic Management Team at a Father’s Day event organized by the Peace Valley Resort in the Eastern Region.
He said “let me single out one person, he is also a father but I can claim that he happens to be my son too and that’s the Vice President sitting right by me. In your narration, you said when the planners decided to invite the Vice President, you learned he had gone to the North for some duties and you even doubted whether he will manage to come.
But you phoned him and with his signature giggling he said if it’s J.A. Kufour I’m coming. That’s so touching, very touching but probably that’s how a son should behave towards a father. Sheer coincidence but you may not know that I started being a father in 1963 and that happen to be the year the Vice President was born.
My son whose birthday falls in September that year could not make it to this event but I believe he came on October 7 and my son was on September 6, October 7 this guy here popped out, and then we’ve related so beautifully. It’s not just for this occasion but once I noticed him, he became like a son. He is a true son, very loyal. So when I heard the narration that when you phoned him he said if it’s Kufour I’m coming, I pray for the Vice President, May God bless him” he said.
