Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has opened up on the secret behind the smiles he always wear on his face. The Gentleman of the land is known for wearing smiles at public events always even when his party was in opposition.

Dr. Bawumia speaking in an interview on Bolgatanga-based A1 radio has revealed the reason behind his cheerful looks. According to him, his constant smiles is part of him and it was no secret.


“I don’t think there is a secret. I always like to look at things on the brighter side rather than on the darker side. I think you can always have two perspectives that things are gloomy or brighter. I always have a more optimistic disposition. The effort you take to frown your face is the same effort you take to smile and when you frown your face it’s not a very good disposition and you let people feel welcome, you feel happier when you smile. I have an optimistic view of things and I don’t take things too personally”

Asked the Host Samuel Mbura whether he has ever gotten angry before, he responded “Samuel when you are human you have human feelings and anger can be human but at the end of the day, you have to put everything in context and try to understand what is going on. For example, somebody insults you, they say that your head is big…maybe your head is big in that case it is a description then you will smile at it. If it is wrong then it is a falsehood why do you get angry because someone has told a falsehood. You smile about it.”
