The skipper of the Senior National team, Asamoah Gyan has asked to be called “His Honour Dr. Asamoah Gyan”.
The call comes after he was awarded an honourary doctorate degree by the Alfred Nobel University, one of the top Universities in Ukrain at the Faculty of Law of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on Saturday 8th July, 2017.
The Gold Doctorate Degree and the Honorary Personality of Exemplary Leadership awards is in recognition of his contribution to football in Ghana and his philanthropic activities in the areas of health, sports and education.
In a tweet some few hours after the the short but colourful event, the Blackstars talisman wrote “By the Grace of God I was awarded Honorary Doctorate Degree…with all humility, respectfully call me His Honour Dr. Asamoah Gyan.”
He now joins distinguished Ghanaians such as Dr. Osei Kwame Despite, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh and President Akuffo-Addo to have been honoured with doctorate degrees by the Alfred Nobel University.
