Vice president of the Ghana Football Association, George Afriyie has dismissed claims that the Ghana Premier League is unattractive as said by the Sports Minister.
The Sports Minister in an interview he granted to Accra based Asempa FM that claimed the Premier League is not attractive due to the lack of sponsorship.
Without backing his claims with facts, the vice-president of the federation George Afriyie has debunked the assertions as disingenuous.
“If the Premier League is not attractive then why are so people putting their money in? If the league is not that attractive as the minister is saying, then how can a Chief like Dormaa, Nana Agyemang Badu invest so much in Aduana stars?”
“I think it’s time Nii Lante put a stop to all these utterances. He always has something to when indeed there’s none. I think if he has a suggestion or not feeling the way things are being run, he should have approached us to find an amicable solution on how best we can organize what he termed as unattractive league than making everything loud in public.”
“If by what he is saying is true, does it mean the season when Hearts of Oak won the league for six consecutive times, the league wasn’t appealing?. If you’re a Minister and you go overboard with every little thing which in my opinion is solvable and has no fuss, then you need to be questioned.” George added.
