“The Year 2022 will bring better times for Ghana”, the Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has assured the people.
He said Ghana continues to soldier on and continues to be on its feet in spite of her socio-economic challenges as a country, heightened by the novel COVID-19 pandemic.
“The world has suffered a lot because of the pandemic. The pandemic has brought about the worst depression in the economic circumstances of the world since the 1930s”, he emphasized.
“Many, many countries have been affected adversely, and have seen so many prices going up”, the Vice President bewailed.
That notwithstanding, Dr Bawumia stressed that with the strong foundation already laid by the President Akufo-Addo led government, he was optimistic that this year will be a successful year, and appealed to all religious bodies to also continue to pray to God to grant the President the wisdom and financial muscle to transform this country.
Watch night services
Dr Bawumia told congregations when he worshiped with some churches in Kumasi at separate Watchnight services to usher in the New Year.
He worshiped at the Breman Methodist Church, the St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica, and the Ayigya Pentecost Church, all in Greater Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
The Vice President was accompanied by his wife, Mrs Samira Bawumia, and some government officials.
They included Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Minister In charge of Parliamentary Affairs and Member of Parliament for Suame; the Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Simon Osei Mensah; and the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Kumasi, Mr Samuel Payne.
