Ghanaian boxer and musician, Braimah Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku, says he has all his documents ready and waiting to be vetted as Deputy Minister of Sports.

In an exclusive interview, Bukom Banku said on 14th July, 2012, it came to him in a dream that the then Vice President John Dramani Mahama had been elected as president. After telling President Mahama about the dream, the boxer said he was promised a top position in the Sports Ministry. 

“As you can see now I have all my documents ready for vetting. Even if the vetting committee calls me today, today, I’ll go for the vetting. I am ready,” Bukom Banku said.

The sensational boxer called on the President to fulfill the promise he make him a year ago.

“When I told President Mahama about the dream he gave me money and he promised to make me Sports Minister. But now, he has put someone there so I know inside me that he will make me Deputy Minister,” he said.

According to Bukom Banku, he has the skills to become deputy sports minister and would deliver if given the nod.

Bukom Banku also noted that he and President John Mahama were best friends even before he became president.

“It is a good thing John Mahama became president. God Himself ordained him to become president. He knows I have a mental problem but he still likes me so I’m begging him to give me the position so I can help Ghanaian boxers.”

He said arrangement had been made for him to fight on March 30th, stressing that he would not disclose his opponent.

“When everything is ready, I will tell the whole of Ghana who I am going to fight with,”

As it stands now, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has been nominated to occupy the post.

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan says his sole focus is simply to see his side advance past the group stages of the Africa Cup of Nations.

After that, he will then start entertaining thoughts of bringing the cup home to Ghana.

Ghana's preparations for the tournament included a 3-0 win over Egypt and a 4-2 win over Tunisia to put them in a good position ahead of their opening match with Congo.

The Group B match takes place in Port Elizabeth at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

"The players know that, the people back home know that we are here to play for our country. We know that the other teams are here to play hard for their country," he said.

"As I said earlier we need to get through the group stages before we start thinking about think about winning the cup."

Ghana are aiming to end a 31-year trophy drought, and go into the clash against Congo having won eight of the 14 clashes between the countries.

The two last met in a 2006 World Cup qualifier where both games ended in draws.
