In March, the former Sunderland man suffered an injury while playing in a friendly game against Adana Demirspor but has not returned to training.
Having featured for the first time since that injury, the striker insists he is fit and ready for the upcoming AFCON.
“I am now fully fit. I have started training now, but I am looking forward to playing in competitive games to gain much fitness,” he said.
“Some people are wondering whether I will make the final squad for the AFCON or not.
“They shouldn’t worry. The only thing I wish for is to be fully fit before the competition begins. If you have good health you have everything.”
The 33-year-old has participated in every single Africa Cup of Nations tournament since 2008, when Ghana hosted.
