The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has made a GHS10,000 donation to the family of late Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu.
This comes after ex-black stars footballers such as Asamoah Gyan, Sulley Muntari, Baffour Gyan, Emmanuel Agyamang-Badu, and Haminu Dramani visited the former New Castle star’s home in Ogbodjo, Accra, to console the bereaved family.
They were seen in videos of traditional family greetings in Ghana led by Atsu’s brother, who many Ghanaians noticed shared a striking resemblance with the late footballer.
Christian Atsu was found dead on the morning of Saturday, February 18, 2022, at the site of his collapsed apartment more than a week after a devastating earthquake hit parts of Turkey and Syria.
Before his demise, he appeared in 65 games for Ghana, scoring nine goals. He captured Ghanaians’ hearts after scoring two goals against Guinea in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals.
However, the NPP through a delegation led by the party’s General Secretary, Justin Frimpong-Kodua paid a visit to the family to offer their condolences for the loss of Christian Atsu.
Justin Frimpong-Kodua was accompanied to the family house of Christian Atsu by NPP National Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B), and the party’s National Nasara Coordinator, Abdul Aziz Haruna Futa.
The PP National Executives after signing the book of condolence of Christian Atsu donated GHC10,000 to aid the family preparations for the one-week anniversary of the late footballer.
