Speaking at a Father’s Day event in the Eastern Region over the weekend, Kufuor said Bawumia has become like a son to him ever since he became a politician.

“Let me single out one person. He is also a father, but I can claim that he happens to be my son too, and that’s the vice president sitting right by me,” the 83-year-old was quoted in a report by Pulse News.

“In your narration [referring to a previous speaker], you said when the planners decided to invite the vice president, you learnt he had gone to the North for some duties, and you even doubted whether he would manage to come.
“But you phoned him, and with his signature giggling, he said ‘if it’s JA Kufuor, I’m coming’. That’s so touching, very touching, but probably that’s how a son should behave towards a father. Sheer coincidence, but you may not know that I started being a father in 1963, and that happened to be the year the vice president was born.”

The former president has always been seen by political pundits as a backer of Alan Kyerematen, Dr Bawumia’s closest contender in the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s flagbearer race.
