Our ties was always going to cross with Asamoah Gyan – Nana Akomea


The vice chairman of the NPP presidential campaign team, Nana Akomea has given an insight as to why the former Sunderland player was drafted to join the party manifesto sub-committee on youth and sports.

On the Star FM chat show, Nana Akomea revealed that Baby Jet as he is known in the football world has finally figured out where he needs to sleep and finally came home.

“He’s always been an admirer of the NPP philosophy, so when he decided to go into politics, his natural home has been the NPP, and we also recognize his contribution. We want him to play a central role, particularly where he is best qualified: sports,” Nana Akomea said.

Gyan however couldn’t hide his joy and quickly took to social media platforms to express his joy about being given the chance to uplift the scope of sports in his native country.

With all the foreign and domestic experience gathered over the years, Gyan remains confident that his exploits will prove very useful in raising sports in Ghana.

He remarked, “As I look back on my journey, encompassing the highs, lows, failures, and successes, I believe I possess ample experience and techniques to contribute to the realm of sports.

“I often ponder, how can we instigate change if we’re unwilling to embrace it? How can we merely spectate from the sidelines, and how can we score goals if we’re not on the field?… My passion and dedication lie solely in SPORTS, it’s all I’ve ever known and loved.”
