The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has admonished politicians and other privileged people to use the opportunities they have gotten to help make others.
According to him, there is no need for one to be moved by the trappings of power to change his/her attitude but rather, such opportunities should be used to to rather hep others.
The Vice President of the Republic was speaking in connection with the gesture he made to a woman suffering from leprosy in Wa West on Bolgatanta-based URA Radio monitored by MyNewsGh.com
To him, he was touched by the story because he was shocked that an old woman of her age will be living under such a condition.
“I think that in life, God puts us here and if God puts you in a position that allows you to help others, God is telling you that use your position to help others. You will be misreading it if you think that God has put you in a position for yourself. We have to look after each other so the people who are not doing as well, we should find ways as individuals and as government to find ways of being more humane. So I was very pleased to be in a position to help the woman. God gives you such a position to help others.”
Dr. Bawumia noted that he has not been changed by power and that he’s the same person and continue to relate with his old school friends so there is the need for all to learn that they don’t need to be changed by the trappings of power.
