The Vice President says the 'hand of God' is responsible for his successful recovery from illness.
Dr. Bawumia traveled to the UK in February to seek medical attention after he complained of “not feeling too well”.
He went on to spend 12 days in the UK as part of his medical leave, before returning to Ghana after recuperating from his illness.
The Vice President joined congregants of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Christ Temple, at Abossey Okai, on Sunday, 11 February 2018, to thank and praise God for healing him.
According to him, his recovery would have been impossible if not for the “hand of God”, whiles also urging the public to continue to pray for President Akufo-Addo and other government officials.
“I know and I believe that the hand of God healed me and I came back,” Dr. Bawumia said.
“On my return I believe that as God says that for all things we have to be thankful and I came here to thank God for my successful healing and also ask you to pray for my boss Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the first lady, the chief of staff and the ministers.”
Dr. Bawumia was joined by his wife, Samira Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, Madam Frema Osei Opare, Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Marfo and several other State officials as he fellowshipped with members of the ICGC.
The Vice President also thanked the government machinery for their support during his time on the sick bed, reserving special praise for his wife, who he described as a “chief nurse”.
“They all stood by me. I also want to thank my lovely wife Samira. Even though there were nurses she was the chief nurse, and she seized all my phones and made sure I was resting,” he remarked.
He further stated that he was “so moved by the prayers all across the country and the churches and that made me realised that with God all things are possible”.
According to him, such a supportive gesture from Ghanaians show that “we are really a one nation and one people”.
