An old childhood photo of Ghana's vice president, His Excellency Mahamudu Bawumia, has surfaced online showing how he acted as a lawyer back at the Sakasaka Primary School in Tamale.
In the hilarious photo sighted by YEN.com.gh, Bawumia was very innocent-looking as he sat down together with some other children and adults on what is reported to be a speech and prize-giving day.
Reports indicated that the old photo was brought out by Konlanbik Jacob Duuti, a 75-year old former primary school tutor of the vice president in the 1970s at the Sakasaka Primary School in Tamale.
See photo below:
Contrary to what many might think, the photo of young Bawumia dressed as a lawyer was not during a career day back then but a play in which he acted as a lawyer that day.
It is said that after completing his secondary education at the Tamale Secondary School, Dr Bawumia got admission to read law at the Univerisity of London but declined.
Instead, Ghana's vice president chose to study banking and economics in order to be on a different career path than his brother who was studying Law at the time.
In another interesting report by YEN.com.gh, Doris Obenewaa Darko, a Ghanaian food vendor, holds two degrees in Mathematics & Actuarial Science after painfully fending for herself since she finished high school.
Narrating her story in an interview, Doris indicates that she holds a bachelor's degree in Mathematics after which she went ahead to study for an MSc in Actuarial Science, both at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Doris grew up in Koforidua-Kukurantumi and had her primary education in Rose's School Complex after which she attended Akim Commercial College JHS, all of which are in New Tafo Akim.
