A high-powered delegation, led by president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwasi Nyantakyi, yesterday called on the family of Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan at their Gbawe residence in Accra.

And as custom demands, Nyantakyi, in the company of PLB boss, Yaw Abra Appiah, deputy Black Stars captain Maxwell Konadu, Lenea Addy, Felix Ansong, George Kwasi Afriyie, all FA Executive Committee members, Alhaji ‘Hearts’ Braimah, Emmanuel Gyimah and his deputy Sani Daara, Sabahn Quaye, among others were present to mourn with the families of the player who lost the mother through a motor accident in Accra last Tuesday afternoon.

Afriyie, who acted as the spokesperson for the delegation, expressed the FA’s condolences to the family.

“The FA president instructed that we see to the proper care of the body, from the accident scene, taking the body to the morgue, towing the damaged car, making police reports and all that needed to be done,” Afriyie said.

His assurance of the FA supporting the family during the funeral brought some ‘sunshine’ to the faces of the mourning family members and sympathizers who had gathered.

Kwadjo Wusu, the deceased’s sibling, on behalf of the family, expressed profuse thanks to the FA for the intervention and exceptional care.

He announced that the date for the funeral would be made known next Tuesday during the one-week sitting.

Nyantakyi described the unfortunate incident as a big blow and called on all and sundry to rally behind the player in his moment of grief.

“He is a human being, and would be negatively affected. We should encourage him to put what has happened behind him to give off his best.

“The only befitting tribute he can give to his late mum is for us to encourage him to lead the Stars to lift the forthcoming Nations Cup,” he added.

The CEO of the Asamoah Gyan Foundation and a close friend to the family, Sammy Anim Addo, believes Asamoah Gyan’s fighting spirit will see him through the trying moments.

Gyan, the last born of four siblings, is expected to arrive in the country from his United Arab Emirates base tomorrow with his two brothers-Barffuor and Poku.

…How  Baby Jet’s Mum Died

It was revealed during the Gbawe visit that the deceased, Cecilia Love Amoako, had no contention with her driver before her death as speculated.

Apparently, the retired head teacher of JT Cluster of Schools, Mataheko, drove herself to the Teachers Hall in the company of a colleague teacher, Essel.

And after the meeting, she returned to the driving seat with Essel directing her while she was reversing.

In an interview with Happy FM yesterday, Essel said all he could remember after the instruction was that the vehicle zoomed straight into a pillar with the speed of lightning.

He noted that he, together with some eye witnesses, rushed her to the Ridge Hospital where she gave up the ghost shortly on arrival.

One of the eye witnesses believed the deceased could have survived but for the alleged delay of putting together her  folder.

Cecelia, wife of Gyan Barffour Mensah and who turns 61 tomorrow, is survived by four children- Mavis (UK), Barffour, Poku (Zigay) and Asamoah.

    putting together what folder? Patients folder? Are you kidding me? I watched a Ghanaian movie which depicts that someone has to provide a police report before a patient is taken care of after an incident? Something seriously needs to be done over there.. UNBELIEVABLE

  2. BX, NYC says:

    the family should file a lawsuit alleging the hospital’s delay of putting together a folder before someone with a critical emergency need can be taken care of..
