Management member of the Black Stars, J. Y. Appiah believes former youth and sports minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye was not transparent.
Ahead of the AFCON there has been some disagreement on the winning bonus of the Black Stars.
The Member of Parliament for the people of Odododiodio constituency confirmed in an interview with Nhyira FM that the team will receive $8,000 as winning bonus and the budget they have approved is $3.8m and he has informed the transitional team but his statement was debunked by Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang insisting the minister’s statement is never true.
It will be recalled that the former Sports Minister slashed the winning bonus of the team from $10,000 to $8,000 but the management members of the team hugely disagreed with the minister.
Despite the slash of winning bonus of the team, asking the management members of the Black Stars to justify why they should be paid the same amount as the Black Stars players and his aggressive posture towards the FA, the astute football administrator believes Nii Lante was not transparent as Sports Minister.
“We never popped up champagne at the secretariat of the FA when Nii Lante left his officer as the youth and sports minister.” he told Asempa FM
“I am not happy about the situation but what I say is that he [Nii Lante] was never transparent as a sports minister and he has retrogressed the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
“As a sports minister, you don’t go around talking about the internal issues within the Black Stars.” He added.
