Ghana’s Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Kwame Asiamah has called out his predecessor Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuije and dared him to appear in the Ghanaian parliament chamber dedicated for discussion issues of sports promotions and development.
The visionary sports minister has been discussing works under his dispensation on Adom TV’s Fire 4 Fire show with Patrick Osei Agyemang and has lashed ‘talkative’ Nii Lante Vanderpuije for his love of public commentary instead of making meaningful contribution to sports development in parliament.
Asiamah’s impressive work in the sector has seen him hold down his place as the country’s sports minister and avoided the perennial reshuffling that is mostly seen at the ministry across various governance continuum.
Since assuming the office as the head of the ministry in 2017 Asiamah’s vision and perseverance has been him herald the construction of the historic ultra-modern sports complexes across 10 regions in the West African nation.
Despite this historic feat former sports minister Nii Lante Vanderpuije has persistently belittled the achievements which is cherished by most Ghanaian sports followers who are witnessing the unprecedented development supervised by the Member of Parliament of Atwima Mponua constituency.
In reaction to the garrulous style of the former sports minister his successor has openly exposed him for his inability to make meaningful contributions on the arena of sports development and promotions in the legislative chamber of the Ghanaian parliament.
“He loves to engage in street talks but there is a chamber in parliament for making meaningful contribution in the area of sports development. Any MP in parliament is armed with tools to check and assess the work of every minister and some include filing a question. Ask him whether he has ever asked a question in that regard. Has he ever made a statement on sports before?,” he told Patrick Osei Agyemang on the Fire 4 Fire Show on Asempa FM.
Asiamah is gunning for re-election as Member of Parliament of Atwima Mponua constituency in the 2020 Ghanaian general elections.
