Black Stars Skipper Andre Ayew Congratulates 'Togbe' Asamoah Gyan

Andre Ayew has congratulated newly enstooled chief of the Gbi traditional area, Asamoah Gyan.

The 33-year-old forward was installed as Ngoryifia-Doemenyotor of the St. Francis College of Education and in the Hohoe municipality of the Volta Region on Wednesday.

The title translates as the ‘Kind-hearted, Progressive Chief’.

This instalment is in recognition of Asamoah Gyan’s massive contributions towards finding a sustainable solution to an age-old water crisis that saddled the College of Education.

“I spoke to Gyan and we are all happy for him. We now have a chief with us in the squad,” the Black Stars skipper told the President Nana Akufo-Addo at the end of dinner on Thursday night.

The Black Stars team will leave Ghana on Saturday for pre-AFCON camping in the UAE.

Coach Kwesi Appiah has named a 29-man squad which will be pruned to 23 for the cup of nations in Egypt.

Ghana have been drawn alongside Cameroon, Guinea Bissau and Benin.
