Political communication scholar and analyst, Dr. Etse Sikanku, is set to release a comprehensive book titled “Dr. Bawumia and the Modern Vice Presidency in Ghana.”
The book delves into the persona and contributions of Ghana's Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, offering a nuanced reflection on his principles, values, conduct, and impact on public discourse.
Dr. Sikanku, known for his prior work, “The Afrocentric Obama and Lessons on political campaigning,” focuses on the significant role played by Dr. Bawumia in reshaping the vice presidency, a subject that has not yet been extensively explored in Ghanaian literature.
The book highlights Dr. Bawumia's dynamism, energy, humility, empathy, and innovation in a role traditionally associated with limitation, tradition, and symbolism.
Dr. Sikanku emphasizes that Dr. Bawumia's activism and perspicacity deserve documentation, considering the historical context of the vice presidency in many democracies.
“Dr. Bawumia and the Modern Vice Presidency in Ghana” aims to contribute valuable insights to political science, government, communication, and leadership studies.
The book is expected to be released early next year, providing readers, students, and enthusiasts with institutional, leadership, and communication lessons drawn from Dr. Bawumia's tenure as Vice President.
