Ex-Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan, has not expressed interest in contesting for the Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro seat, Member of Parliament Sylvester Tetteh has confirmed.

The MP, in an interview with Hello FM, stressed that Gyan has denied earlier claims that he wanted to run for Parliament on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“Let me say that Asamoah Gyan hasn’t said he is coming to contest. He has denied it. He is my good friend. We chat almost any other day,” the MP confirmed.

“He is my good friend. It is some people (who are instigating that narrative),” he stressed before confirming further that Gyan was not a registered member of the NPP.

Tetteh was quoted months back as claiming that Gyan was being sponsored to contest him in upcoming primaries ahead of the 2024 elections.

Gyan, who is close to president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has at no point spoken about political aspirations.
