Asamoah Gyan opens up on becoming Member of Parliament for Weija-Gbawe constituency

Ghana legendary striker Asamoah Gyan has responded to reports that he has set his eyes on becoming a Member of Parliament (MP) for Weija-Gbawe constituency in the Greater Accra Region.

Despite not having the ambitions to do politics now, Gyan said anything can happen in the future.

"I’m happy that people are grateful about what I have done. I said earlier that people want me to become their MP," he told Adom FM.

"The most important thing is that people are happy with what i have done,"

"Talking about politics anything can happen, but for now politics is not on my mind,"

"Sometimes the people choose you, people can choose you to lead them. When the roads were going on plus other projects, many people were urging me to lead them as their MP."

"Some people did not plan to do politics but at the end of the day they are doing politics which is a normal thing,"

Majority of the Ghanaian media last week reported that the 34-year-old may contest as a Member of Parliament in the future.

Sources say Gyan will contest for the Weija-Gbawe seat where he currently lives, in 2024, on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He was even spotted in Parliament in February this year during the State of the Nation Address.

Gyan is Ghana's all-time top scorer with 51 goals in 109 appearances.
