Vice President of the Republic, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia says the Hand of God healed him after he was taken ill in Ghana a few weeks ago, necessitating a two weeks medical leave to England.
Speaking at a Thanksgiving service held at the International Central Gospel Church, (ICGC), Christ Temple at Abossey Okai, Sunday, the Vice President full of thanks to both the Christian and Muslim Communities in Ghana said he believes that he had a special visitation from God as a result of the many prayers offered for him and it is the reason for his state of good health today.
