Feature Article Soccer Star Asamoah Gyan, why Do You Risk Your Family's Lives And Football Fortune Over Politics?
FEB 26, 2024 LISTEN

How often have you heard, Mr. Asamoah Gyan, that "politics is a dirty game?” Despite being the process of governing society, the state, and the economy, politics is frequently described as a dirty game because it also has dark sides. Apart from the widespread corruption, lies, money laundering, deception, and assassinations that are associated with politics, it can have a significant impact on decision-making, the creation of public policy, and most importantly, can ruin people's lives forever.

To be honest, Asamoah, after learning that you have been selected to join "Bawumia's manifesto or campaign team," I didn't give it much thought, but then I realized how foolish it is for you to take that position considering your success in soccer and subsequent wealth, and more significantly, your knowledge that anything that happens to you will also have an impact on your family once you enter politics. I fail to see why you took it, whether it was for more recognition, wealth, or a name in politics.

I have several reasons why I will never get involved in African politics, including the fact that I have worked hard to create a happy family and have somewhere to live in Ghana and Europe. Even though no Ghanaian is aware of it, I assure you that if I ever have to join politics in Ghana, no one will ever give me credit for the hardships I had to overcome to get where I am now. Instead, they will likely accuse me of obtaining those properties through a political party.

My refusal to enter politics stems from the fact that even though my assets in Ghana were acquired through hard work in Europe, the government might easily seize them if a coup occurs and most likely end up in prison. Even though that might not happen to Asamoah Gyan, joining Bawumia without taking into account certain factors, particularly the safety of his family, is bad. When did Asamoah start showing interest in politics in Ghana? Has he ever expressed concern for the welfare of the populace?

Has Asamoah Gyan ever addressed the pervasive corruption that has brought down the nation's investments, businesses, and economy? Asamoah Gyan should have refused that offer right away out of concern for the suffering of Ghanaians and an understanding of the harm done to the nation by the NPP government, which includes Akufo Addo, Ken Ofori-Atta, and Mahamudu Bawumia. However, he chose not to do so because wealthy people are greedy and never stop wanting more money.

As with most celebrities, Asamoah Gyan has plenty of enemies because of the penalty he missed in Ghana's 2010 World Cup quarterfinal matchup against Uruguay. He is disliked by many Ghanaians. When he and a Ghanaian musician, Theophilus Tagoe, also known as Castro, met on July 6, 2014, while on vacation in the southern Ghanaian town of Ada, and the musician vanished, hatred for him grew. He had been featured in Castro's music videos before his passing or disappearance, since his body hadn’t been found.

As previously said, I don't give a damn if Asamoah Gyan agrees to participate in Bawumia's campaign team. However, I must warn him that doing so puts his life and the lives of his family in jeopardy, which could also have an impact on his football fortune when the 2024 election is rigged in Bawumia's favor. He will be surrounded by enraged and hungry Ghanaians because he will be held accountable for bringing this corrupt and destructive administration back to power.

There is no amount of police or military in the country that can ensure Mr. Asamoah Gyan's safety, so he should hope that the election is never rigged so he can live in peace with his family. Since I am not a prophet, this is not a prediction or prophecy; rather, it is a thorough political study.
