Isaac Asiamah slams Nii Lantey Vanderpuye over bribery allegation against GFA

The Minister of Youth and Sports believes his predecessor Nii Lantey Vanderpuye claims of bribery against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have no basis.

The MP for the Odododiodio Constituency made allegation last week that the GFA attempted to bribe him when he was the Minister for Youth and Sports.

Hon Asiamah, who replaced Vanderpuye thinks the latter should have reported the matter to the police instead of waiting for his tenure to end before making allegations.

“What measures did Nii Lantey take when people attempted to bribe him as he claims? “As far am concerned You dare not attempt to bribe me” I have been an MP for 12 years and a Public Accounts Committee Member 8 year, so everybody knows my worth,” Asiamah told Kasapa FM.

“I will not end my term as Sports Minister before I go on air to accuse anybody of bribing me. What he is alleging is a criminal offence and he should have taken action when he was in power.”

“As a minister, I have work to do and that is what I’m committed to help the nation Ghana. The job is not all about lamentation like how somebody made it seem in the past. I do not engage the media that much because there is work to be done and that is where my focus is”

It would be recalled that Nii Lantey Vanderpuye was at logger heads with the Ghana Football Association during his time at the Minister for Youth and Sports.
