Former Youth and Sports Minister, Enock Teye Mensah has applauds Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye for remaining strict in his dealings with the Ghana Football Association insisting it is the only way the Member of Parliament for Odododiodio can achieve his ambitions at the Sports Ministry.
With no doubt, many sports pundits and fans believe the current Youth and Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye is being too strict in his management of issues relating to the Ghana FA which has led to rough relationship between both parties but the former Sports Minister advised the GFA to yield themselves to the leadership style of the former GBC worker.
“Nobody can be a leader without being strict if not you can’t achieve anything. I was strict; I never allowed certain things to be done. People who supported us did that wholeheartedly because we managed their funds properly.” ET Mensah told Accra based Starr FM.
“It is not the matter of Nii Lantey Vanderpuije walking on anybody but they [GFA] should be humble enough. You go on air through your communicators to insult your minister that he should not have anything to say about the Ministry which he has been assigned to work? If anything goes wrong he will be blamed.
“These reactions from the GFA have resulted in the high turnover of Ministers because people deliberately will plan and say they will finish a particular minister”. He added.
