Popular boxing champion Braimah Kamako, best known as Bukom Banku has said that he would have been awarded the position of Ghana Ambassador to Germany if the National Democratic Congress had not been defeated in the 2016 elections.
According to him, if the NDC had been victorious, he would currently be in the European country representing Ghana's interests.
"There is no more ambassador again because my father has lost the elections, but if NDC had won, they would’ve given me the post; Ambassador for Germany," he stated.
Bukom Banku stated his wish to hold the position in Germany is due to his interest in the country.
He said his basic knowledge of spoken and written English would not have interfered with his work if he had been offered the position.
"Me, I like Germany, I speak English grammar, i’ve been to school before, I know reading and writing so if the former President John Mahama had given me the opportunity to go to Germany, I would have worked, if I’m not good with the books, I will use my manpower," Bukom added.
The boxer further said that he was 'hungry' in the country, although he failed to offer any conclusive explanation of his statements.
He added that while he is hungry in Ghana, Former President Mahama is the only one that feeds him and he will only stop being hungry once Mahama returns to power.

Bukom further touched on the recent tragedy where an army captain, Maxwell A. Mahama was lynched to death by mob in the Denkyira-Obuasi township in the Central Region.
Bukom urged the military to show restraint and let the matter be settled by the proper institutions, as they could most likely do more harm than good.
