Despite having no prior interaction, Mr. Kufuor recalled prophesying to Dr. Bawumia that he would go far if he continued on his path.
Reflecting on Dr. Bawumia’s emergence onto the political scene, Mr. Kufuor highlighted his support for the Vice President back in 2008, despite his then-limited profile. He urged the party to embrace Dr. Bawumia’s leadership potential, emphasizing that it has become evident over time that he is on a mission driven by destiny.
Acknowledging the scarcity of good leadership globally, Mr. Kufuor praised Dr. Bawumia’s grasp of new technologies and geopolitics, essential attributes for effective governance in the modern era. He lauded Dr. Bawumia’s humility and temperance, qualities deemed essential for steering the nation forward amidst challenges.
Mr. Kufuor stressed the importance of prioritizing national interests over partisan concerns and called for the collaboration of competent individuals to support Dr. Bawumia in navigating the complexities facing the nation.
