Akufo-Addo gifts Richard Commey GHC50k and car

He became the 9th Ghanaian to win a title at the world stage. The others are David Kotey Poison, Azumah Nelson, Nana Yaw Konadu, Ike Quartey, Alfred Kotey, Joshua Clottey, Joseph Agbeko, Isaac Dogboe.

Today he paid a courtesy call to the Presidency where President Akufo-Addo gifted him a sum of GHC50,000 and a car.

The President said: “They [the Sports Ministry] are going to buy you a car, they are in the process of arranging it from the Ministry.

“They will get you a nice Toyota car. The office of the President is also adding Gh50,000 to it. It is a small token of our esteem and admiration for the honour you have brought our nation. Keep it up,”

Commey also thanked the President but asked him to pay attention to the sport.

“Some boxing managers and coaches enter into agreements without the consent of the boxer. This phenomenon does not help boxers. The government, the Sports Ministry and the Ghana Boxing Authority must look at that aspect and deal with it. If dealt with, the country will have more world champions,” Commey said.
