Anas’ exposé on Nyantakyi a tip of the iceberg – Nii Lante
Former Minister for Youth and Sports, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye is not surprised about the rot uncovered by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas in Ghana football.
According to him, what has been uncovered especially about the conduct of GFA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi is just a tip of the iceberg.
The whole nation has been thrown in a state of shock after the premiering of the latest piece in which GFA officials, Kwesi Nyantakyi, referees and some Ghana Sports Authority officials have been implicated for various acts of corruption.
Mr Nyantakyi, for instance, is seen in the video negotiating a deal between a supposed investor by which the investor will gain undue advantage in securing contracts in the Ghanaian political space.
Many Ghanaians, including some Parliamentarians have called for Nyantakyi to resign and save the face of GFA as an institution.
In support, Nii Lante Vanderpuye on Adom FMs morning show Dwaso Nsem Thursday said the GFA boss should not be left off the hook this time.
He stated that, the embattled GFA boss has manipulated the entire system to his advantage thus made it difficult for anyone especially during his tenure to expose him.
The former Sports Minister stressed that, more damaging and damning revelations would have been exposed if Anas had investigated issues at the international level.
The Member of Parliament for the Odododiodoo revealed that, it was his intention to investigate issues of Ghana football when he was in charge of Youth and Sports but was limited by the change of government.
“I had commissioned the BNI to investigate the GFA and Nyantakyi but for our loss in the 2016 elections, FIFA would have banned Ghana but our football would have been clean” he added.
This notwithstanding, Nii Lante Vanderpuye said it is better late never hence the Akufo-Addo led government should take this opportunity to do a house cleaning at the GFA.
