Lawrence Nii Nyanyo Nmai, a Ghanaian kickboxer and fitness instructor based in Switzerland has commended the media in Ghana for their hard work in reporting and giving vital information on the coronavirus pandemic.
The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) kickboxer of the year in 2011 and 2015 said the media who are part of the front line workers should be hailed just like the health officials – doctors, nurses, pharmacists, cleaners and others.
Speaking to Yours Truly on phone, he said the people of Ghana have also done well to abide by the health and safety protocols.
He expressed delight at the love shown by benevolent people during the lockdown period and stressed that one must not be rich to help others who are in need.
Nmai, President of the Pro Fighting Factory in Ghana and Switzerland who made a donation to the elderly people in La, Accra where he comes from recently noted that it is a great feeling to help others, and that is what he loves to do very often.
He is planning to make a presentation to the Black Bombers, the national boxing team.
According to the WBC Muay Thai champion, he had been following the plight of the Bombers who went to Senegal to qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
He urged those who qualified not to be swollen-headed, but train harder because they are going to face the best in the world, and it is a grand opportunity and platform to sell themselves and the nation.
“The Olympic Games is a big platform to advertise the nation,” he said.
He advised all boxers and kickboxers to be disciplined and obey their coaches.
