Henry Asante Twum will handle official issues relating to media and communications at the GFA

The Ghana Football Association has appointed Henry Asante Twum as Head of Communications of the football body.

His appointment comes barely 48 hours after the FA's acting Communications Director, Tamimu Issah, tendered in his resignation citing personal reasons for quitting the job after 14 years with the FA's communications dipartment.

 Mr Twum's appointment was, perhaps, the worst kept secret as it was rumoured over a month ago that he would be moved to head the FA's communications department, having worked closely with GFA president, Kurt Okraku, at Dreams FC.

With over 15 years of experience in the media landscape, Mr Twum previously worked for Tema Youth FC and Premier League club, Dreams FC as Director of Communications.

He was also Group Head of Sports at EIB Media Network and has also worked with several Ghanaian media houses notably, Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, Radio XYZ and Power FM.

He is popular on the local scene for his excellent delivery of commentary in the Ghana Premier League for the last decade and was recently appointed by FOX/ESPN as commentator for the 2019 WAFU tournament in Senegal.

Mr Twum will handle all official issues relating to media and communications at the GFA.
