A lecturer at the University of Media, Arts and Communication (UniMAC-GIJ), Dr Etse Sikanku has hailed the Vice President of Ghana’s transformation of the Office of the Vice President in Ghana and Africa.
In a yet-to-be-released book titled “Dr Bawumia and The Modern Vice Presidency In Ghana,” he posits that Bawumia was or is a VP who reinvented the office through his active contributions to political discourse, policy, and programs.
The Book further indicates that considering that the Vice presidency in many democracies has been one of limitation, tradition, and symbolism, Dr Bawumia’s activism, energy, ethos, perspicacity, and dynamism as Vice President deserves to be documented.
In a post announcing the forthcoming book he has authored, Etse Sikanku indicated that “Just like Walter Mondale did for Jimmy Carter, Bawumia has put the Vice right there in the presidency (apologies to Blackmore), becoming a major reference point for political studies and public discourse on the role of the Vice Presidency. No matter how history evaluates him, no matter how posterity judges him, we should never forget the passion, dedication, vivacity, perspicacity, dynamism, loyalty, service, and empathy Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia brought to the position”.
