Second Lady, Samira Bawumia has revealed that her husband, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia could not propose her directly when they met for the first time.
According to Samira, it was “love at first sight” when they met.
Speaking in a radio interview on Monday, March 9, 2020, the Second Lady said the Vice President, upon seeing her the first time, said he had met his soul mate.
"We [Samira and Dr Bawumia] met years later... we met through mutual friends," who introduced us and it was love at first sight.
Samira was at Asempa FM on Monday and a listener asked her how she met her husband.
She noted that like most Ghanaian men, Dr. Bawumia did not propose to her when they met.
Speaking in the Twi language, Mrs Bawumia said Dr Bawumia had to beat about the bush but she [Samira] concluded he was interested in her when they first met, she said amidst laughter.
Dr. Bawumia and Samira have been married for 16 years. They celebrated their anniversary on February 14, 2020.
The couple has four children - three boys and one girl.
The Second Lady also catalogued the seas of bad policies the Mahama administration introduced which adversely affected Ghanaians.
She also bemoaned the sorry state the economy was in when it was bequeathed to the Akufo-Addo administration.
Samira said the Nana Addo-led government has done very well to rescue the economy from that dungeon and placing it in a safe spot.
