Sports Ministry dismiss GFA Presidential election interference reports

The Ministry Of Youth and Sports has rubbished widespread reports that Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah is masterminding the banning of candidates for the Ghana FA Presidential elections in favour of Nana Yaw Amponsah.

The Ministry has issued a strongly worded statement to that effect distancing itself from all the allegation.

“The attention of the Youth and Sports Ministry has been drawn to widespread reportage, that the Hon. Minister is masterminding the banning of candidates for the Ghana FA presidential elections in favour of Nana Yaw Amponsah.

The Ministry wishes to reiterate that, the Normalisation Committee has been given the mandate to organize and conduct elections for the new GFA executives and the Ministry has no way interfered in its activities.

It should also be made known that, the Hon. Minister is more focused on the outcome of the ongoing African Games in Rabat, Morocco and the construction of the ten (10) multipurpose youth and sports centres across the country.

We, therefore, urge the public to ignore such information and treat it with the contempt it deserves.

The Ministry will like to assure the good people of Ghana of its mandate of developing the youth and enhancing the sporting image of the country.”
