Kwesi further said that after careful study of the pro-government tabloids he observed that “one thing that is being hyped or perhaps overhyped is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia; anything he says is wisdom, anything he does is excellent and so on and sometimes one even gets the impression that it takes precedence over the President."

So it does appear that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is enjoying the limelight perhaps more than anybody else in this administration and sometimes it makes me wonder what actually is happening.
