“I have learned through my life experiences never to take anything for granted and to always treat everyone with respect, regardless of their status or stature. The person you encounter today as a cleaner or driver may become the Vice-President or President tomorrow,” he remarked.

Dr. Bawumia further expressed his deep care for the impoverished, vulnerable, and marginalized members of society. He stated, “I am dedicated to the well-being of the underprivileged, including lepers, the sick, individuals suffering from sickle cell disease and cancer, people with disabilities, street children, kayayei (head porters), and the unemployed, among others.”

He continued by highlighting the essence of addressing the challenges faced by the most vulnerable in society and empowering them to uplift themselves. “This is the true purpose of life: to tackle the problems faced by the weakest among us and assist them in improving their circumstances,” he affirmed.

Dr. Bawumia concluded his statement by outlining his vision for Ghana, asserting that the nation is ready to advance to the next level by building upon the strong foundation already established.
