President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has endorsed the ‘Celebration of Our World Champions’, a book authored by Ekow Asmah, a seasoned sports journalist.
At a brief function during which the author and Herbert Mensah, President of Ghana Rugby Association, led a delegation including David Kotei, aka D.K. Poison, and Hall of Famer Azumah Nelson, to the Presidency, President Nana Akufo-Addo expressed keen interest in boxing, a sport he practised in his youth days.
The President praised the author for his great work and commended him for serving as inspiration for others.
Other former World Champions present were Ike Quartey, former WBA welterweight king, and Joseph Agbeko, former bantamweight champion, and Roger Barnor, a WBC referee/ 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.
