Ghanaian international football star, Asamoah Gyan, has revealed that the constituents of Weija-Gbawe, are rooting for him to become their Member of Parliament soon.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on celebritiesbuzz.com, the parliamentary move was as a result of Asamoah Gyan's initiatives prior to, during and even the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ghana.
The football star has been engaged in many philanthropic acts for years and his most recent moves of constructing a road and providing COVID-19 relief for the people in the constituency probably highlighted his political ambitions.
While speaking in an interview as reported by the website, Asamoah Gyan did not rule out the fact that he could soon join celebs like John Dumelo who nurse political ambitions.
He said he was glad that the people of Weija-Gbawe where he lives, were appreciative of his little philanthropic efforts and also wished to see him in Ghana's House of Parliament.
“I’m happy that people are grateful for what I have done. I said earlier that people want me to become their MP. The most important thing is that people are happy with what I have done.
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,” the Black Stars' top goalscorer with 51 goals said.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Black Stars striker was sponsoring the construction of a rough road in his area in Accra.
Gyan himself revealed this in an Instagram live video on Sunday, May 17, that he was paying for the full cost of constructing the road.
According to Asamoah Gyan, the raining season has made the unmotorable hence his decision to construct it with his own funds.
“These are the petty petty ways we can also help”, he noted.
Gyan was present at the site where the project is taking place. He was there to inspect and make sure the work is going on smoothly.
