Agyemang Badu to focus on politics after retiring from football


Ghana star, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has vowed to venture into politics after his exit from football.

The Udinese star in an interview at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi disclosed that his keen interest in politics is to serve his people.

“I will venture into politics 10 years from now when I am done with active football. I want to serve my people; I mean the people of Seikwa. Life is all about using your position to bless people God connects you to. I believe God raised me among the lot to give back to them.”

“I started on a quiet note but looking back I have realized God has placed me in a position to bless my people. Politics affects everything we do; when done on a good note, the leader impacts the people positively.”

“I see myself as MP for my area 10 years from now, I am working towards that and I believe it shall come to pass,” said Badu.”

As part of efforts to realize his political dream, the 2009 U-20 World Cup winner has embarked on many charity projects.

He recently settled the huge water bills of the people of Seikwa and donated items to orphanages, among others.

The midfielder is currently operating a sachet water business (Agyeba Drinking Water), which supplies water to the people of Seikwa and its environs.

“I am currently doing sachet water, it’s doing well because the people have accepted it. I will move to bottle. As soon as some machines arrive, we will hit the ground running,” Badu added.

Badu was instrumental in Ghana’s two-legged 2018 World Cup qualifier against Comoros that saw the former advancing to the group stages.
