I worked as cleaner in Canada; I have respect for all manner of persons – Bawumia

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said he has respect for all manner of persons irrespective of their status in life.

He says his life experience teaches him to eschew discrimination in his dealings with people.

Addressing a gathering of New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters after filing his nomination forms to enable him to contest in the presidential primaries of the party, on Friday, June 16, he said “I believe that is the first step of our victory in 2024 by the Grace of God. This is a very important day in my life. From Sakasaka Primary School to Tamale Secondary School to Oxford University to the Bank of Ghana as Deputy Governor and then to become Vice President of the Republic of Ghana. It has been an amazing journey and I thank God for how far he has brought me.”

He added, “It has not been an easy journey, it has taken a lot of hard work, discipline, and dedication to get here. I have been a by-day worker on farms during the holidays in secondary school, I have been a warehouse boy even after finishing university, and I have been a mini truck driver.

“I was only able to pay fees for one term during my studies at Oxford University and I had to survive for the rest of my studies without paying fees, thanks to my colleagues.  I only settled my fees in arrears after I work following my completion of my Ph.D. in Cannada. I have also been a cleaner of toiletries in my university days in Canada,so I can say I have not had it easy at all. But I have always believed that with hard work, honesty and discipline and faith in God almighty, everything was possible.

“My life experience tells me never to take anything for granted and always to have respect for people no matter their stature in life, no matter how big or small they are. The cleaner or the driver you meet today could be the vice president or the president tomorrow.”
