Former Ghanaian football star Asamoah Gyan has taken on a new role in the political arena, as he’s been appointed to the Manifesto Committee of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections.


Gyan, renowned as Ghana’s leading goal scorer of all time, has agreed to lead as an advisor on “Youth and Sports” for Dr. Bawumia’s presidential campaign. This move underscores Gyan’s commitment to leveraging his influence and experience to contribute to national development beyond the realm of sports.


His inclusion in the Manifesto Committee, alongside twenty-three other politicians, signifies a concerted effort by the NPP to conduct a comprehensive review of their previous manifestos from 2016 and 2020. The aim is to engage stakeholders and craft a pragmatic manifesto tailored to address the evolving needs of the nation.


Gyan’s appointment follows a cryptic message he shared on his social media platform, hinting at the importance of sports legends leveraging their influence and resources to attract investment and empower youth in various sporting disciplines such as football, boxing, and athletics.


With his wealth of experience in football and his extensive network, Gyan is poised to play an integral role in shaping the sports-related policies and initiatives within Dr. Bawumia’s manifesto. His appointment underscores the recognition of the pivotal role sports can play in youth development and national progress.


As part of the Manifesto Committee, Gyan is expected to actively contribute to the formulation and communication of sports-related policies and strategies within Dr. Bawumia’s manifesto. His appointment represents a fusion of sports and politics, highlighting the potential for collaboration between the two spheres to drive positive change and development in Ghana.


Gyan’s transition from the football pitch to the political arena reflects a broader trend of sports personalities engaging in social and political issues beyond their athletic careers. His willingness to serve in a leadership capacity demonstrates a commitment to making a meaningful impact beyond the confines of his sporting achievements.


As the political landscape evolves, Gyan’s involvement in Dr. Bawumia’s manifesto committee signals a recognition of the importance of diverse perspectives and expertise in crafting policies that resonate with the aspirations of the Ghanaian people.


With Gyan’s leadership and expertise, coupled with the collective efforts of the Manifesto Committee, Dr. Bawumia’s campaign aims to present a comprehensive and forward-thinking vision for Ghana’s future, particularly in the realm of youth empowerment and sports development.


As Ghana prepares for the upcoming elections, Gyan’s role in shaping the NPP’s manifesto underscores the potential for collaboration between sports and politics in driving socio-economic progress and fostering national unity and pride.
