Asamoah Gyan should stay neutral in politics – Rockson Dafeamekpor

By Majesty 1 Min Read

Rockson-Nelson Kwami Etse Dafeamekpor, a member of parliament for the South Dayi Constituency, has criticised Asamoah Gyan, the former captain of the Black Stars, for his political action.

He suggested that a public figure of Gyan’s stature like this should stay apolitical, and that Gyan’s affiliation with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) validates his purposeful miss of a penalty kick during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in order to deflect attention away from the then-opposition-led government.

The former striker for Sunderland and Udinese was just added to the manifesto committee of NPP 2024 Presidential candidate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The parliamentarian reiterated his accusations that the highest goal scorer in Africa deliberately missed the penalty against Uruguay because he was affiliated with the NPP.

Ghana would have become the first African country to advance to the FIFA World Cup semifinals with a victory over Uruguay. Morocco accomplished that achievement in Qatar during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
