Asamoah Gyan has been appointed Ghana’s tourism ambassador 12/18/2011

Striker Asamoah Gyan has been appointed Ghana’s tourism ambassador to help promote the country’s tourism sector abroad.
The UAE-based attacker has opted not to take any payments to promote his country.
The 2010 World Cup hero will use his huge international profile to serve his country in another capacity for free.
The Al Ain man, who is also famed for his music, will attend international tourism events to promote the industry in Ghana.
Gyan will also use his travel on club and international matches to promote the Ghana brand and tourism sector.
The tourism ministry believes the in-form Al Ain goal poacher is the right person to be used to rebrand and market Ghana on the international tourism market.
“This appointment entails marketing and promoting Ghana through football as a renowned Ghanaian striker at international arena,” Ghana’s tourism minister Akua Sena Dansua said in the appointment letter.
“It is the expectation of the Ministry that you will accept this appointment to be of service to the Nation and to bring your huge international exposure to promote tourism in Ghana.”
Gyan was delighted to be named the country’s tourism ambassador insisting he will serve his country in any capacity.
“I am very very happy to be named Ghana’s tourism ambassador. I have served my country on the football pitch and now I get the chance to serve in another field,” Gyan said.
“I am ready to serve my country anytime and I will use my image to promote Ghana’s tourism anywhere in the world.”
Apart from his heroics at the 2010 World Cup and 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, Gyan’s image continued to soar after featuring in hiplife artiste Castro’s hit single African Girls.
The 26-year-old, nicknamed Baby Jet, is also revered for his ‘Azonto’ dance goal celebrations.
Meanwhile, Gyan scored on Tuesday night for Al Ain to defeat Al Ahli 2-0 to move to the top of the UAE league.
The 25-year-old scored the opener for his side on 21st minutes with a fine finish.
Argentine striker Ignacio Scocco doubled the advantage a minute after recess to seal the victory for the home side.
Gyan’s strike was his 7th goal in seven games for Al-Ain since joining them in September.
This means the Sunderland loanee has scored in all of Al-Ain’s last three league matches.
Al-Ain have now opened a one point lead at the top with 17 points.
Gyan is now the league’s second leading scorer, one behind Brazilian Ricardo Oliveira of Al Jazira.
