Designate Youth and Sports, Hon. Isaac Asiamah has launched a scathing attack on his predecessors Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye insisting he should have known better on how to manage issues with the Ghana Football Association.
It was repeatedly reported that both parties are not in a good relationship due to how Black Stars issues were being managed.
The Member of Parliament for the people of Odododiodio took some decisions that was not well accepted by the FA. Winning bonus for the management of the team was cancelled and slashed the Black Stars winning bonus by 20%.
The relationship between the Sports Ministry and the GFA deteriorated with members of the association accusing the then minister of leaking confidential information to the media.
Hon. Isaac Asiamah who has been a member of parliamentary committee on sports and is set to be confirmed as the new Sports Minister thinks his predecessor should have known better.
“All officials at the GFA are also Ghanaians and they all want the good of Ghana. Everyone wants something good for Ghana.
“But when you go there [to the Sports Ministry] and you behave as if you are the best man or you love the country more than everybody then you have already failed from day one,” he told Joy FM
“I believe we are all Ghanaians: the way I love Ghana, so do other members of the GFA. So there should be a concerted effort to bring progress, because when there is progress it benefits all of us,” he added.
The Member of Parliament for Atwima Mponua Constituency believes that if the outgone Sports Minister had seen members of the football association as Ghanaians, he could have done better.
