I will continue to take ‘gari and shito’ when travelling abroad – Dan Kweku Yeboah responds to Nyantakyi

Ace sports presenter, Dan Kwaku Yeboah has disclosed that its not surprising for a Ghanaian to travel abroad with "gari" and "shito".

As far as he might be concerned, even rich individuals take gari and shito (cassava flakes and hot pepper sauce) while travelling abroad hence quizzing why individuals were making joke of him for journeying abroad with gari and shito.

Dan Kwaku Yeboah's response follows a disclosure by previous Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi that he had been of massive assistance to numerous Ghanaian games columnists including Dan Kweku Yeboah.

Showing up on Bola Ray's Starr Chat radio program last week, Kwesi Nyantakyi made it known that during a competition in Australia in 2008, when he was going for supper one time, he saw Dan Kwaku Yeboah was not going with them and when he asked, he (Dan) let him know that he brought gari and shito from Ghana, which he planned to have for supper.

Mr Nyantakyi said, after hearing of the gari and shito story by Kwaku Yeboah, he encouraged the presenter to discard it and go with him to the eatery for a fair dinner.

In response to Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Number 12 documentary, which led to his resignation from his position, the former GFA boss stated that, despite his disappointment with the manner in which many journalists joined the public to further tarnish his image, he has no resentment toward any of them.

Dan Kwaku Yeboah is noted for his comic stories on radio particularly on the Peace FM morning show. Thus following the disclosure by Kwesi Nyantakyi, many have depended on deriding him on why he bites gari and shito on his worldwide journeys.

Be that as it may, responding to the issue on Peace FM on Tuesday, (January 16, 2024), Dan Kwaku Yeboah asked why Mr Nyantakyi wanted him to come at his defence.

Talking in the midst of chuckling, Dan Kwaku Yeboah said it was absolutely impossible that he might have protected the previous GFA President considering the different degenerate charges that had been evened out against him.

For his purposes, nothing bad could be said about him taking gari and shito to Australia, making sense of that he will go on for travelling with gari and shito whenever, refering to a model that even on his confidential excursions, he goes with gari and shito.

Additionally, Dan Kwaku Yeboah advised the former GFA boss to remain silent and instead praise God for his release following his incident.
