Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Family of Mohammed Salisu have issued a statement to clarify the certain misinformation being peddled by a section of the media as regards his absence from the Black Stars.

Ghana coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor said in an interview with Accra-based radio station on Tuesday that Ghana Football Association attempt to invite the 21-year-old has been unsuccessful.

PRESS STATEMENT ON SALISU MOHAMMED’S ABSENCE FROM NATIONAL DUTIES.

The family of Abdul Karim Salisu Mohammed wish to correct and clarify news gaining momentum in some media circles which seems to suggest that our son has rejected the opportunity to play for the senior national team, the Black Stars.

We further wish to state unequivocally that our son is a proud Ghanaian and very ready to represent Ghana at every level and time. He is so much enthused to be associated with the Black Stars since it has been his dream to play for Ghana at the highest level.

However, we have received media reports on the contrary and it is really disturbing that journalists failed to ascertain the truth of his absence from national duties.

Salisu was indeed invited to play for the South Africa and São Tomé games for the African Cup qualification but he was slightly injured then. He did not want to represent his beloved country with a hidden injury.

Again, Salisu availed himself for call ups into the junior national teams but he got those invitations at an unfavorable time of his career in Spain.

It is our wish that in subsequent matches of the Black Stars, our son will be available and represent the country.

We hope this statement will put to rest the numerous media conjectures and unproductive rumors which is geared at creating dissatisfaction by Ghanaians against our son. Salisu Mohammed is committed to the course of helping Ghana win an African Cup and qualification to the World Cup once again.

Thank you.

Family of Abdul Karim Salisu Mohammed.
