Ghana captain Gyan hails President-elect John Mahama

Published on: 09 December 2012

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has congratulated John Mahama on his election as President of Ghana.

The incumbent was declared winner of the December 7 election on Sunday after polling 50.70% of the total valid votes cast as against closest contender Nana Akuffo-Addo who polled 47.74%.

The elections also saw the NDC sweep majority of the parliamentary seats to spark wild jubilation across the country especially in the NDC’s strongholds.

And Gyan who will be leading Ghana at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in a terse congratulatory statement to the President-elect, also hailed the conduct of Ghanaians during the elections.

“I want to congratulate President John Mahama on his election and also congratulate Ghanaians for ensuring a peaceful elections,” the statement copied to GHANAsoccernet.com read.

The Black Stars striker proceeded to pledge his side’s commitment to bringing further honour to the country by winning the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.

“Ghanaians should enjoy and cherish this moment and hopefully there will be more enjoyment when we win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.”

Ghana will be hoping to win a fifth African title – the first after 31-years by the time the tournament kicks off in South Africa.

The Black Stars however have to first progress from Group B which has Mali, Niger and DR Congo as contenders.

    Theres no free education at north. anybody who think that northerners are educating free should licks their fathers asshole. Kwame nkrumah set free education for northerners but later on this evil Nana akufu Addo fathers came and condemed it and stopped that free education and told Nkrumah no one can do free education for Ghanains now this evil Iddi Amin (Nana Addo) telling Ghanaians he want to do free education God Himself does not love evil doers. the memories of a dead is a warning to a living. Asamoah thanks for your good will message to Mahama you are a true son of Africa who is praying for peace in this country. those who are always evil tribalistics May God send them to hell soon. NDC is a true party. Npp rule for 8 good years nobody talks but when NDC came Npp now crying. Kufuo should please teach his followers to be fair and truthful and not tellings lies. No one add figures to John Mahama but Ghanaians loves him so much. he does not talk about evil messages. Is only God that chooses a leader. Kumasi is a strong holds for Npp how comeS NDC got 5 seats? it means everyone love NDC much.

    If you believe in equity,why must some people have free secondary education in the north while others are not able to afford secondary education in the south.Its a pity to see such people rule the people who paid their fees.People in the south like the Ga‘s and Akan‘s must wake up and demand free education too.What is good for the goose is good for the gander!

    The vast majority of Ghanaians simply didn't like Akuffo Addo. He lost the election, plain and simple and must accept the result. We don't have time for any court cases, one person cannot hold the country to ransom, Ghana need to move forward. Akuffo Addo is very arrogant person, twice refused to come out to defend his name on his marijuana saga and his Oxford education. Nobody likes a rude president. NPP needs to learn from Mitt Romney and change their attitude and message, we don't buy it.

    NPP are still challenging the results of the election due to alleged fraud from NDC so lets wait and see. It's too early to congratulate John Mahama. The results may change after the protest from NPP.

    Asamaoah Gyan is a bad luck captain and will let us go out in the first round.
