The entirety of Ghana and the Christian community has taken a keen interest in your humility, respect for people, and diligence with which you approach your work.
Those were the words of the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Accra, Rt. Rev. Dr. Daniel S.M Torto, eulogising Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The vice president joined congregants at the church on Sunday, April 4, for the Easter Sunday Service.
Highly tipped to succeed President Akufo-Addo as the NPP’s flagbearer for the 2024 elections, Rt. Rev. Torto told the vice president that “no man can dim his light.”

Meanwhile, the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, has called for diversity in the selection of flagbearers for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, the time has come for the governing party to wean itself from the ‘Akan party’ tag by choosing flagbearers from different tribes.
“…It wise that after two Akans – former President Kufuor and current President Akufo-Addo – to present a flagbearer candidate with different ethnicity,” the Suame MP stated on The Probe on Joy News.
