The Senior National Soccer Team’s former captain camp, Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has denied media reports claiming that the player has purchased a parcel of land at Kwame Nkrumah Circle that is currently being used as a truck stop.
The concerned drivers at the Obra Spot Lorry station vowed to fight Asamoah Gyan’s takeover of the piece of land with all their might because that’s where they make their money to fend for their families.
They believe that the AMA has sold the land near the lorry station to Ghana’s leading ever-present goal scorer to set up a business facility as they say they saw his brother Baffuor Gyan on the premises overseeing works on the property.
Samuel Kwame Abankwah Fosu, the Station Master, appealed to President Akufo Addo to intervene and stop the selling of the land they have been operating as a station since 1983.
Yet Asamoah Gyan’s agent, Samuel Anim Addo, in an interview with Kasapa FM News, said the striker knows nothing about the property and is not interested in buying any land near Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
“This is not the first time we’re hearing of such falsehood about Asamoah Gyan taking over a land. Sometime back there was similar allegation that he had bought a land at Race Course in Kumasi which got most of the traders there agitated but that was false. It is absolutely untrue that Asamoah Gyan is buying any land at Obra Spot. There’s not been any such thought nor has he discussed with anyone about wanting to buy any land and so I urge the public to ignore the rumour. The drivers should not be worried as I can assure them that Asamoah Gyan will not take over that piece of land.”
