The Ghanaian parliament gathered to pay a moving tribute to Christian Atsu Twasam, a gifted football player who unfortunately died in a building collapse in Turkiye.

The late Black Stars and Hatayspor winger was praised by the parliamentarians, led by Kobena Mensah Woyome, the ranking member on the committees for youth and sports, culture, and chieftaincy.

Atsu was characterized by Woyome as a selfless, modest, and caring person who personified the very best of humanity.

He also emphasized the football player’s outstanding accomplishments, such as his steady rise to fame and his significant involvement with the Black Stars, the senior male football team.

Woyome read a touching three-page tribute to Atsu during the parliamentary session. It detailed his life and accomplishments, including his charitable endeavors like the school construction project for orphans at Senya Beraku and his work as an ambassador for the charity Arms Around the Child, which aids underprivileged children.

Woyome called for a shift in the way the nation honors its important persons and emphasized the significance of honoring Ghana’s heroes while they are still alive.

Atsu’s wife, Marie Claire Rupio Twasam, his twin sister, Christiana Twasam, and his three children received heartfelt condolences from the Parliamentarians in attendance at the funeral.

They also expressed their condolences to Hatayspor, the football community, and the entire country.

On January 10, 1992, Atsu was born in Ada Foah, the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. Before relocating to Turkiye, he played for a number of clubs, including Newcastle United, Everton, and Bournemouth.
