    “I’m used to your opinions” – Asamoah Gyan to critics of his Bawumia appointment

    Chairperson of the sub-committee responsible for drafting the youth and sports segment of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s manifesto for the 2024 elections, Asamoah Gyan, has responded to critics of his appointment by affirming that his role on the committee aims to contribute to the advancement of sports in the country.

    Named as a member of the manifesto committee for Dr. Bawumia’s presidential bid on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, Gyan assumes the position of chair for the youth and sports sub-committee.

    His responsibility involves leveraging his expertise to devise strategies for sports development and the empowerment of Ghanaian youth.

    Addressing criticisms during the inauguration of the committee on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Gyan acknowledged the scrutiny he has faced.

    However, he remains undeterred by the backlash, viewing the appointment as an opportunity to apply his two decades of experience as a footballer, boxing promoter, and sports event organiser.

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

    Comprising 316 members, the manifesto committee is tasked with the crucial responsibility of crafting the document that will serve as the cornerstone for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s campaign.
