Ghana's Vice President, Dr. Mahamdu Bawumia, has finally commented a little bit regarding his recent 12 day medical leave while giving his testimony during his visit to International Central Gospel Church's (ICGC) Christ Temple in Accra on Sunday.
Vice President Bawumia's recent medical leave was one that not only took Ghanaians by surprise, but also took the headlines for the better part of two weeks.
While the Vice President was on leave, Ghanaians both home and abroad made countless assumptions concerning his medical condition, some of which alleged that the Vice President had suffered a stroke and would not return to Ghana anytime soon.

Since his return to the country, Vice President Bawumia has given Ghanaians very detail regarding his two week long medical leave, choosing to concentrate on the work at the presidency instead.
However on Sunday, February 11th, the Vice President, his wife, Samira, along with high ranking government officials joined members of ICGC's Christ Temple to thank God for pulling through in his time of illness.
Speaking in Church, Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia revealed how one doctor jokingly told him that the time for him to rest had finally come. He also revealed that when he was on leave his wife, Samira, seized all his phones in order to make sure he got the rest he needed.
"You said the battle is the Lord’s; but today, the Lord has caught up with you and you’ll have to rest.” Said the doctor according to Dr. Bawumia.
Ghana's Vice President went on to thank all those prayed for him during his illness, and also asked members of the congregations to pray for President Nana Akufo-Addo.
“I know and I believe that the hand of God healed me and so on my return I believe that as God says ‘for all things we have to be thankful,’ and I thought I should come here and pray for my successful healing and also ask you to pray for my boss, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.”
“In all humility, I’m here to say a big thank you to God for bringing me back in good health…I was moved by the prayers across the country for me... It made me realize that with God all things are possible and I’m so thankful to you for everything you are doing…please continue to pray for us.”
