I write to express my sincere apology to the Ghana Football Association and the entire nation for any embarrassment that my action in Brazil brought to the Black Stars Team, the Ghana Football Association and my beloved country Ghana.

I have reflected on what happened and I am deeply sorry and apologize to all the stakeholders in the GFA who were offended by my actions. 

Ghana has a special place in my heart and I will forever be indebted to my country and all the fans who have supported me from the beginning.

I am always available to play for the Senior National Team of Ghana whenever I am invited.

Yours faithfully,
