Taekwondo fraternity donates GHC12,000 to family of late technical director

Shuaibu Yakubu Nandoe, a former national champion and 5th Dan black belt, passed away on 27 May 2024, after a period of illness

The Ghana taekwondo community has come together to support the family of the late Shuaibu Yakubu Nandoe, a beloved figure in the sport.

On Sunday (16 June), representatives from the Ghana Taekwondo Federation (GTF) presented a donation of GHC12,000 to Nandoe’s wife, Zalia Imoro, at their residence in Ashaiman.

Nandoe, a former national champion and 5th Dan black belt, passed away on 27 May, 2024, after a period of illness.

He was not only the Technical Director for the Greater Accra Regional Taekwondo Association (GARTA) but also a dedicated coach for Ghana’s national para-taekwondo team.

Nandoe’s passion for the sport extended beyond the national team, as he shared his expertise as an instructor at St. Mary’s International School in Ashaiman.

The GTF president, Frederick Otu Lartey, presented the donation alongside Secretary-General Adnan Odartey Lamptey and Technical Director Stephen Amegashie Jnr.

Their visit served as a gesture of support and appreciation for Nandoe’s lifelong contributions to taekwondo in Ghana.

Nandoe’s influence extended beyond the world of martial arts. He previously held the position of bodyguard for renowned Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu.

Shuaibu Yakubu Nandoe’s passing leaves a void in the Ghanaian taekwondo community. His dedication to the sport, both as a competitor and an instructor, will be remembered for years to come.
