Asunafo North District is one of the 22 districts of the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Goaso, Mim, and some other 16 settlements constitutes this lush district blessed with abundant natural recourses.
To help ensure these untapped resources show a reflection in the socioeconomic lives of the hardworking locals would require an efficient leadership. A leadership with a proven track record and a vision guided by foresight. This is where Paul Gyan, affectionately called Pope perfectly fits into the developmental equation of Asunafo North Municipal District.
Mr. Paul Gyan is a registered pharmacist who had his university education from Ghana's flagship technology-based univeristy, Kwame Nkrumah Univesity of Science and Technology from 2004 to 2008 after pursing his secondary school education from Mim Secondary School. Obviously, his second cycle education in Mim has equipped him to better understand the developmental needs of the district he wish to wholeheartedly serve.
Paul does not only have a solid educational background, he also comes to the table with a rich work experience in management and entrepreneurship. Through hard work and personal financial discipline and management, he set up his own pharmacy at the very early stages of his career in 2012. He is the Chief Executive Officer of Sylvalyf Pharmacy, community pharmacy based in Sunyani.
Beyond his 8-year practising experience as a Senior Pharmacist in both the private sector and the public sector at the Sunyani Regional Hospital, he has also served in various leadership capacities.

Additionally, he lectures at the Sunyani Technical University on part-time basis, where he imparts his knowledge and skills in management and the pharmaceutical sector to the youth of this country.
His expertise spans through the areas of effective resource mobilization, advocacy and lobbying, counselling, entrepreneurial development among many others. Apart from his experience from civil service and the private sector, Paul is an ardent and a deft political player whose calm demeanour and lively social skills brings him far more closer to the grassroots base of the New Patriotic Party. He is an active Member of the NPP’s Professionals for Change group and the founder of Young Patriotic Professionals in Asunafo North Municipality.
