Samira Was My Chief Nurse – Bawumia

Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has expressed his appreciation to his wife, Samira Bawumia, for caring for him when he was ill and took a sick leave.

According to him, although he had nurses around him, Samira was the “chief nurse”.

“She seized all my phones and made sure I was resting,” Dr Bawumia told congregants of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Christ Temple at Abossey Okai, on Sunday, 11 February 2018 when he joined them to thank God for healing him.

Dr Bawumia noted that God healed him and urged Ghanaians to pray for political leaders across the country.

He said: “Pray for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, pray for the First Lady pray, for our Chief of Staff and the Ministers. They all stood by me and prayed for me just like you also prayed for me. I also want to give thanks to 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 ad made sure I wasn’t doing anything but resting.”

Dr Bawumia further said he was moved by the prayers across the country for him and made him realise that “with God all things are possible.”

Dr Bawumia reported to work on Friday, 19 January 2018 unwell and subsequently left Ghana for the UK for medical leave.
