I Retract And Unreservedly Apologize For Penalty Miss Remarks – South Dayi MP To Asamoah Gyan

Spread the love

The Member of Parliament for South Dayi, Rockson Nelson Dafeamekpor, has issued an apology to former Ghana international, Asamoah Gyan, following comments he made the latter missed a penalty in 2010 to make the New Democratic Congress (NDC) unpopular.

The NDC MP alleged Gyan’s missed penalty against Uruguay in the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup was backed by his political affiliation with the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Dafeamekpor’s comments come shortly after the ex-Black Stars captain accepted to serve on Dr Mahamadu Bawumia’s manifesto campaign team for the 2024 elections.

“I am of the opinion that Asamoah Gyan intentionally threw away that penalty because it was under NDC. It’s today that I’ve come to the realisation that he threw away the penalty in the 2010 World Cup and the Africa Cup because the glory would have come to the NDC,” he said on Radio XYZ.



However, after receiving backlash for his comments made about Ghana’s all-time top scorer, Dafeamekpor has moved quickly to issue an apology to Gyan.

“The Black Stars & other national teams have iconically rallied & carried our passions, dreams and aspirations for glory to the world,” he wrote on his X (formerly Twitter) page on Saturday, March 2.

“Upon reflection & calls from people like Kenpong, I retract & unreservedly apologize to Asamoah Gyan, for my comments.”
