Asamoah Gyan word to critics of his Bawumia Campaign team


Former Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan has replied to critics who continue to spit on his partnership with New Patriotic Party Flagbearer Bawumia.

Asamoah Gyan, the chairperson of the sub-committee responsible for drafting the youth and sports segment of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s manifesto for the 2024 elections, has responded to critics of his appointment, maintaining that his presence on the committee is to contribute to the growth of sports in the country.

Wednesday, February 21, 2024, witnessed Asamoah Gyan as the manifesto committee for Dr. Bawumia’s campaign team.

As the chair of the youth and sports sub-committee, the former Sunderland man has been given the chance to bring his experience on board and help generate ideas on how to broaden the scope of sports in the country

Speaking to JoyNews on the sidelines of the committee’s inauguration on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Gyan admitted to seeing some criticism directed at him.

The legendary footballer is, however, not worried by the attacks, as he thinks that the appointment is a platform for him to put into practice his two decades of experience as a footballer, boxing promoter, and sports event organizer.

“They have their own opinions,” Gyan said at the inauguration of the NPP’s Campaign Team for the 2024 general elections at the Alisa Hotel when quizzed about the thoughts of his critics.

“I have been there [before]. I have been to Stadia and been booed in front of 80,000 people; I am used to it.

“At the end of the day, the work shows. Sometimes, you go to the enemy’s territory, and you come out with applause. I have confidence in myself, and I know what I can do to help. I am here to help because of my 20 years of experience. I can’t just sit at home and keep it. I have to share it with the new generation to benefit from it.

“At the end of the day, when everything is said and done, we see what we did or what we couldn’t do. The criticism will come. It is also good for me and for my team to push harder,” he added.
