Second Lady of Ghana, Mrs. Samira Bawumia has said her husband, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been working over time since he assumed his current role.

According to her, the vice president is very passionate about serving the country hence his commitment and continues hardwork.

Asked whether the Vice President is doing well in government, Mrs. Bawumia responded in the affirmative saying; “Absolutely. I see the commitment. I see the passion in him. It has not waned. He is still that man who wants to serve his country and works for ridiculous number of hours.”

Mrs. Bawumia on the Citi Breakfast Show admitted that the Vice President “needed that rest" which was he flew to the UK to ensure that he was kept away from visitors who may disturb his rest and recuperation period.

She further indicated that though Dr. Bawumia’s role takes most of his time,he spends time with the family when possible.

” Public office does affects family life. You make a lot of sacrifices. There are meetings that run into the night but we understand it is service to the nation. He spends as much as quality time with the kids as possible when he can and when he can’t I am there to pick up,”she said.
