The NPP vice-presidential candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has been installed as Youth Chief of the Sakumono Traditional Area.
He was given the stool name Nene Amediku Sogbodjor II.
The event took place when he paid a courtesy call on the chief of Sakumono and his elders at his Palace as part of a two-day tour of the three Tema constituencies.
The former deputy governor of the Bank of Ghana was also honoured with a carved wooden object to signify his intelligence and truthfulness. The youth in honouring Dr. Bawumia explained that despite numerous attacks on his person, he has been proven right on all the issues he raises and pointed to his intelligence and competence, noting that he is a great role model for the youth of Ghana.
“The youth of Sakumono in unison have also decided that since their Chief and Elders have installed Dr. Bawumia as Youth Chief, then the youth also have a gift for him. This carving is called ‘the wise man’. They chose this ‘wise man’ because even though Dr. Bawumia always gets insulted for his analysis and comments, he is always proven right. Anytime he comes out, he is right and that is why the youth have chosen ‘the wise man’ carving as his gift”, they said.
