However, if they ever want to be, we think they will have the support of many Ghanaians.

• Abedi Ayew ‘Pele’

 

The Ghanaian football legend is a very good candidate for the presidency if he ever decides to contest.

Abedi Pele was a member of the Black Stars squad that won Ghana’s last Africa Cup of Nations title in 1982.

He was adjudged the African Player of the Year 3 consecutive times (1991, 1992 and 1993)

• Anthony Yeboah

 

The General Secretary for the Confederation of African Football (CAF) is also a potential president.

Tony Baffoe played his club career in Germany and he was part of the Black Stars team that finished runners-up in the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The first Ghanaian expatriate-player to play for the Black Stars will also make a fine President of Ghana.

He has occupied many roles in FIFA and CAF. He has played the roles well showing that he may also be a better president.

• Andre Ayew

 

The Black Stars player with his resilience on the football pitch and other characteristics can be President of Ghana.

He will be tough, take hard decisions that may not go well with many but enhance development.

• Asamoah Gyan

 

The current captain of the Black Stars with his businesses and his efficiency in playing football will be a good President.
