President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has endorsed the ‘Celebration of Our World Champions’ – a book authored by Ekow Asmah, a seasoned sports journalist, about Ghana’s 10 World Champions.
At a brief function during which the author and Herbert Mensah, President of Ghana Rugby, led a delegation including David Kotei, aka Poison, and boxing legend Azumah Nelson, Nana Addo expressed his keen interest in boxing, a sport he practiced in his youth.
The President praised the author for his great work, and commended him for serving as inspiration for similar works in the future.
Other former World Champions on hand were Ike Quartey, former WBA welterweight champion, and Joseph Agbeko, former bantamweight champion, and Roger Barnor, a WBC referee and judge.
The former World Champions took turns to receive signed copies of the book bearing His Excellency’s signature and best wishes, after which the delegation and the President marked the occasion with group pictures, having conveyed some of their concerns.
