Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi says Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye did a ‘serial caller’s assessment’ of the Premier League by saying the top-flight is unattractiveness.
Vanderpuye made his views on Accra-based Asempa FM last week and has since received a stinker from the Premier League Board- which comprises all 16 clubs.
Nyantakyi is on the view the sector minister sunk too low in his analysis.
“If the league is not attractive, how did we recorded an amount up to four hundred thousand cedis in a single match between Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko and when we record these gate fees we pay vat on them so the government is also a beneficiary.
“The league is the most attractive sporting event in Ghana now ahead of cycling, athletics, volleyball and everything so there is nothing to be even compare to it and to say the league is unattractive. This is a league that we sleep, dream and think about it and the interesting thing is that all the clubs are owned by private entities so the question is that what has the government being doing to help those teams and I expect the minister to be doing that and not to be criticizing the league without any facts probably like a serial caller.
“We must be very serious and adopt a professional approach to our analysis of issues and set out the facts so that people can make their own judgement but any accession or the view that the league is unattractive, with all due respect can never be supported by the facts.” The GFA boss added.
