The vice president of Ghana Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia spent his Easter with the Lighthouse Chapel International (LCI) at the Independence square.
This was particularly memorable because the Vice President is known to be a staunch Muslim. His presence was testament to his all-embracing leadership qualities, going beyond of his affiliation in the execution of his duties.
H.E Bawumia was seen at the program looking all excited and participating in the various activities. He even took the opportunity to make a pledge: the government would consider using concrete to construct roads instead of asphalt, he said, addressing a concrete-for-road construction campaign that LCI leader Bishop Dag Heward Mills has been championing.
Dr. Osei Kwame Despite is the Chief Executive Officer of different companies in Ghana. Businesses ranging from Peace FM, Neat FM, OKAY FM, Best Point savings and loans Special Investments and Best Assurance Company (Ghana) are known to belong to this Kumasi-based millionaire.
The Easter season saw one of the richest men in the country spoil himself with a brand new luxurious car: a branded Brabus, a prestigious high-performance vehicle.
The car, manufactured by the German BRABUS company (which specializes in Mercedes-Benz, Smart, and Maybach vehicles) is the latest addition to his flashy fleet in a garage located in a mega-mansion in Kumasi.
What a flamboyant way it was for Mr. Despite to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ.
On Easter Monday, April 17, perhaps buoyed by the congenial feel of the festivities, former President John Mahama and current Gender and Social Protection Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba, rekindled friendly relations after a past fraught with a seeming feud. The duo were seen in a hearty mood at the 2017 Gonjaland Youth Congress at Sawla in the Northern region.
The Gonjaland Youth Association Congresses over the years have served as avenue, where all the indigenes of Gonja, residents of Gonjaland and persons who by special circumstances and or choice are affiliated to the affairs of Gonjaland, meet to deliberate reflect and constructively debate on the socio political and economic well-being of Gonjaland.
