Former Youth and Sports Minister; Nii Lantey Vanderpuye has voiced out that, there were several attempts from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and some national team players during his reign to influence him; which he resisted.
Speaking on Atinka TV yesterday, the former Sports Minister said some officials used dubious means to get him trapped. “they (the GFA) have been forcing monies on ministers and other officials who travel with them during matches” He said.
According to Nii Lantey, he has evidence of corruption in Ghana Football as a result of people who came to his office to bribe him which he recorded with a secret camera. “some national team players through some officials came to influence me to pay ‘ways-and-means’ and protocol fees in order for the Black Stars to qualify to the World Cup; which I drove them away.” He added.
