Bawumia had congratulated the Black Stars for a sterling match and 2-1 win over DR Congo on Sunday.
The newly-inaugurated VEEP of Ghana, however, cautioned the team to be wary of Cameroon, as they might not be an easy team to vanquish.
The Stars, courtesy a goal each from the Ayews in the second half, beat DR Congo in the quarterfinal stage of the ongoing Nations Cup in Gabon and will next face Cameroon in the semi-finals on Thursday 2 February.
The Black Star's win over Congo makes their sixth successive appearance at the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.
According to Dr Bawumia, the match will not be easy but was confident that “with the continuous support and prayers of all Ghanaians, the Black Stars will make it”.
“Congratulations to the Black Stars for defeating the DRC to book a semifinal place at the Afcon. Next up is Cameroon, which won't be an easy task. But with the continuous support and prayers of all Ghanaians, the Black Stars will make it. To the team, please stay focused. You can do it,” his tweets read.
Cameroon beat Ghana at the same stage of the 2008 edition of the AFCON hosted by the latter.
