For many who have seen them, their marriage may be your relationship goals and after 16 years they still look good together.
The Vice President and his wife celebrated their wedding on February 14, 2020, but what looks so perfect may not have been easy for Dr. Bawumia as revealed in a radio interview Monday.
The Second Lady disclosed that the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia could not propose directly to her when they first met.
Explaining how they met, Mrs Samira Bawumia said she completed the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in the year 2000. “We [me and Dr Bawumia] met years later… we met through mutual friends,” who introduced us and it was love at first sight.
According to her, Dr Bawumia was attracted to her the moment they first met and concluded he had met his soul mate, “a catch,” she said amidst laughter when she appeared on Asempa FM Monday afternoon [March 9, 2020].
The couple has four children, three boys and one girl.
Mrs Bawumia was on the radio programme to talk about a wide range of issues but in responding to a question from a listener who wanted to know how the couple met, she said Ghanaian men in general normally do not propose to their women and that is exactly what Dr Bawumia did when they met.
Speaking in the Twi language, Mrs Bawumia said Dr Bawumia had to beat about the bush but she [Samira] concluded he was interested in her when they first met, she said amidst laughter.
