The MP for Effutu, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, says Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is a symbol of peace in Ghana.
In a statement made on the floor of Parliament, the Effutu Member of Parliament said: “Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia is another calm character, easy of address, a determined soul, ready to serve his country.”
Afenyo-Markin made these remarks ahead of the commemoration of the nine years of passing into glory of the late vice-president, Aliu Mahama, who died on 16 November 2012 in Accra.
He likened Dr Bawumia’s calmness and other traits to that of Aliu Mahama of blessed memory.
He also emphasised that just like the late vice-president, Dr Bawumia is an emblem of unity in the country, urging religious groups to be tolerant of each other.
