Stephen Appiah to Contest Ayawaso West Wuogon Parliamentary Seat as Independent Candidate

Former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah, is set to enter the political arena, with reports indicating that he will be contesting as an independent candidate in the upcoming general elections in Ghana, scheduled for December 2024.

Appiah’s decision marks the beginning of his political career as he vies for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency seat.

Confirmation of his candidacy came through a tweet from Fifi Tackey, spokesperson of the Ayew Family, affirming Appiah’s independent status.

The Ayawaso West Wuogon seat, already a focal point of political activity, sees Appiah entering the race alongside established figures like NDC’s John Dumelo and the incumbent MP, Lydia Seyram Alhassan of the NPP.

Appiah’s entry into politics adds another dimension to his storied career. Remembered fondly for leading the Black Stars to significant milestones, including their first-ever World Cup appearance in 2006 and qualification for the 2010 tournament, his leadership qualities and national pride resonate deeply with Ghanaians.
