Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has recognized the contributions of 75-year-old Jacob Duut who taught him at Sakasaka Primary School in Tamale, contributing his quota to his current stature in society.
Dr Bawumia who continues to hold his former teachers in high esteem, on Sunday shocked Jacob Duuti when he through the North East Regional Minister Hon Solomon Boar donated a brand new tractor to assist him in his farming.
Mr. Duuti has been credited for playing a pivotal role in the life of Ghana’s second gentleman and he has never forgotten the positive influence of this special teacher Duuti on his life.
Mr. Duuti and his family could not believe their eyes when he was handed the tractor.
He was in shock and tears filled his eyes as his family and community celebrated the good news.
After receiving the tractor, the elated former teacher of the Vice President expressed his heartfelt appreciation and prayed for God to continue to bless Dr. Bawumia and grant him more wisdom to serve the country.
Mr. Duuti recalled nostalgic memories of the Vice President during his days as a primary school pupil in Tamale at the Sakasaka Primary School.
