Ghanaian international football icon, Asamoah Gyan, has addressed critics over his recent appointment as the chairperson of the Youth and Sports sub-committee tasked with drafting Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s manifesto for the upcoming 2024 elections.

Addressing concerns during the inauguration of the committee on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Gyan acknowledged the criticism directed towards him but remained unfazed, drawing upon his resilience honed through years of professional sports.

“They have their own opinions,” remarked Gyan in response to queries from JoyNews about the backlash from 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.”

Gyan further reaffirmed his dedication to advancing sports development in Ghana and said his role on the committee is driven by a sincere desire to contribute positively to the growth of the nation’s youth.

“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 personally and for my team to push harder,” he added.

With the responsibility of leading the youth and sports sub-committee, Gyan joins a 319-member manifesto committee tasked with drafting a manifesto for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s electoral campaign.

In a press release dated February 22 and signed by the Director of Communications of the campaign team, Dennis Aboagye, Bawumia said he looked forward to the collaboration of the members to secure a historic win in the upcoming December elections.
