Mr Gyan reportedly died on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, after battling a short illness.

He was a trained Engineer and operated a construction firm.


Until his demise, he was the Western Regional Chairman of the NDC Communication Committee and Regional President of the NDC Professionals Forum.

Following the news of his death, social media has been inundated with tributes in his honour.
