I’M SORRY – NDC MP Apologises To Gyan

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for South Dayi, Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwami Dafeamekpor, has apologized to former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan for questioning his commitment to Ghana.

His apology comes after calls were made to him by well-meaning Ghanaians, and he reflected on his statement about the former Black Stars striker.

In a tweet on X, he said “The Black Stars & other National Teams have iconically rallied & carried our passions, dreams and aspirations for glory to the world. Upon reflection & calls from people like Kenpong, I retract & unreservedly apologize to Asamoah Gyan, for my comments.”

Defeamakpor, while speaking on Radio XYZ, indicated that he would not be shocked if Asamoah Gyan wasted the penalty at the 2010 World Cup just to rid the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of the glory.

“I am of the opinion that Asamoah Gyan intentionally threw away that penalty because it was under NDC. It’s today that I’ve come to the realization that he threw away the penalty in the 2010 World Cup and the African Cup because the glory would have come to the NDC. Asamoah Gyan is now part of the Bawumia campaign team. There is everything wrong with that because when you are a national figure and you become partisan I can reasonably say that it’s because of politics you threw that penalty away so that the NDC government will not get the glory. I am telling that I feel the pain,” he said.

His comments received backlash from a section of Ghanaians who believed that it was in bad taste considering Asamoah Gyan’s commitment to the Black Stars and Ghana.

Asamoah Gyan in his response before the apology stated, “Maybe he wants an autograph. Don’t worry. I will sign one for him soon.”
