The Chief of Tamale Naa Dakpema Alhassan Dawuni wants the immediate restoration of Laryea Kingston to the Black Stars.
The 31-year-old midfielder has not been involved with the Ghana national since he was dropped from the final 2010 World Cup squad.
Kingston who now plays for Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League however refuses to give into numerous suggestions that his days with the Black Stars are over especially after his colleague and friend Stephen Appiah hanged up his international boots after the 2010 World Cup.
His ambition to rejoin the side after an over two-year absence was handed a massive boost at the Dakpema Palace where the overlord of Tamale made a passionate demand to have the former Lokomotiv Moscow player given a call up in the next national team assignment.
“Laryea Kingston is one player I admire a lot and I don’t know why he is not part of the current Black Stars set up,” the Dakpema said when a host of Ghanaian football stars paid a courtesy call on him on Monday ahead of the commencement of a peace campaign.
“He (Kingston) is one player who plays with a lot of passion and these are the kind of traits you need in the Black Stars.
“I therefore want to tell whoever is in charge of call ups to the Black Stars to give Laryea Kingston an invitation back into the side immediately.”
Kingston felt even much better as he drew the most fans and applause during the stars’ time in Tamale where the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) in conjunction with the National Commission for Civic Education have started a campaign to promote peace ahead of the general elections on December 7.
