Communications and Journalism lecturer, Professor Godwin Etse Sikanku has highlighted some emerging values and leadership principles embedded in Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s Vice Presidency in a new book released recently.

He stated that beyond politics, the life of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia holds some inspiration for the youth, governance, leadership and communications in general.

Professor Sikanku said this in an interview with Paul Adom Otchere at the back of his latest book, DR BAWUMIA AND THE MODERN VICE PRESIDENCY IN GHANA.

According to him, “corporate leadership in terms of what deputies and assistants can learn from his loyalty to the President, his hard work and his dependability."

Drawing some analysis from the book, Prof Sikanku also believes that Dr Bawumia has lived up to what is expected of a modern Afrocentric Vice President.

He premised his position on three indicators; that a Vice Presidential Office must be an instrument for social justice, social progress, and social cohesion.

“This is an office that can be the single most transformative executive framework for the transformation of the country in terms of it being an instrument for social justice, for social progress and social cohesion. And if you look at all these three indicators, this is a Vice President who has really fulfilled all these three indicators on what a Modern Afrocentric Vice President should be”he noted.

The book traces the background of Dr Bawumia and his evolution into a Veep who has redefined the constitutional role of the office of the Vice President as a ceremonial entity, into a more dynamic and problem-solving one.

He focused on “the Vice President and the unique qualities and attributes he brings to the office, and I tease out a number of them. His empathy, his humility, his hard work and excellence, his loyalty and dependability, his progressiveness and forward-thinking nature, especially when it comes to digitalization and the kind of dedication and commitment that he brings to his work.”

Some chapters in the book include, “The Bawumia Factor, H.E. Samira Bawumia, the Supreme Court Petition: a Star Witness Illuminate the Nation, the Modern Afrocentric Vice President, the Bawumia Way and Lessons, Mr Digitalization,” and many others.
