Speaking about his religious belief at some point, he said:
I try to shun all sorts of fear because, like I said, I don’t joke with my spirituality as a person, and biblically speaking, when you fear, you attract it...so I live a very happy life, and fear is not something I entertain.
The politician attended St. James Seminary Secondary School in Sunyani before gaining admission into Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
So, is Sammy Gyamfi a lawyer? Yes, he is a lawyer; he studied law at KNUST and afterwards, he went to law school and graduated with distinction. Eventually, he was called to the bar on the 5th of October, 2018.
Sammy's interest in politics began during his first year as a student of Kwame Nkrumah University. At Unity Hall of the university, in those days, he spent time with members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) until members of the TESCON group discriminated against him. Eventually, he left the party to the NDC’s tertiary group known as TEIN.
Sammy Gyamfi's NDC journey has been nothing short of spectacular. Because of his insightful, outspoken, and in-depth knowledge of politics, he ended up becoming the president of TEIN-NDC between 2011 and 2012. Afterwards, he worked as the Public Relations Officer and spokesperson for the Mayor of Kumasi, Mr Kojo Bonsu, from 2012 to 2016.
However, during his time at the Ghana School of Law, the politician was made the Students Representative Council. He also functioned as the Communication Director of Ibrahim Mahama's Exton Cubic Mining Group at some point. Later on, he won an election as the National Communication Officer for the NDC.
Is Sammy Gyamfi married?
Currently, the astute politician is yet to tie the knot with any woman. However, sometime last year, he raised the hopes of his fans that he would be getting married this 2021.
During an interview he granted on Neat FM, the NDC National Communication Officer said, "I will get married before 2021 ends." However, when asked who the fortunate woman is, he responded by saying, "God will provide."
So far, Sammy's net worth has not been established. His followers are hoping that he will declare his worth someday. However, judging by his numerous businesses he is a rich man.
Habib Iddrisu, the MP for Tolon, recently filed a motion for Sammy Gyamfi to be brought before the Privileges Committee. He posited that Gyamfi made some comments he deemed contemptuous to Parliament.
The National Democratic Congress Communications Director had earlier criticised the NDC caucus in Parliament on the controversial approval of some minister-nominees. Calling out key leaders in his comments on Facebook, apart from describing the moves as a betrayal, he said:
They brazenly defied the leadership of the party and betrayed the collective good for their selfish interest. The shame they have brought on the party will forever hang like an albatross around their necks.
Sammy Gyamfi has created a niche for himself in Ghanaian politics through his eloquent communication style, confidence, and unique style of debate. However, there is no doubt that he has not hit the climax of his political career yet.
