Accra, Dec. 12, GNA - Samuel Osei Kufuor, former deputy captain of Ghana's National Soccer Team, the Black Stars on Saturday presented a letter of apology to the Vice President, John Dramani Mahama.
The former player was alleged to have been involved in an incident with some security personnel of the Vice President.
Media reports said on December 1st Osei Kufuor made an insulting gesture when the security detail asked him to pave way for the Vice President's convoy.
Reports said the player's vehicle was obstructing the convoy of the Vice President.
The Vice President however was said to have described the incident as "a little misunderstanding in traffic", adding that he knew that Osei Kufuor would never deliberately show him disrespect.
Vice President Mahama described Osei Kufuor as a younger brother and a friend saying, "I hope this brings an end to the matter once and for all."
Osei Kufuor later made a presentation of soccer boots duly endorsed with his signature to the Vice President.
