Tough-talking Nii Lante Vanderpuye slammed for criticizing Sports Minister

Deputy Sports Minister, Curtis Perry Kwabla Okudzeto, has slammed Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye for criticizing Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah.

The former Sports Minister has been on the neck of the current administration.

In his recent interview with the media, the Odododiodio Member of Parliament reiterated that there is no need for the current Government to construct its ten multipurpose complex in the country, stressing it is not the pressing need of the sporting fraternity.

This comment has not gone down well with Mr Okudzeto.

According to him, Nii Lante as a former sports minister should know better and stop making such irrelevant commentaries in the media.

“Nii Lante should keep quiet, he thinks that sports management is wrestling or boxing, we all witnessed the controversies and confusion you created when you were Sports minister’’ he told Kasapa FM.

“The work is not a strong man’s business but rather implementing a vision for the development of the sector.

“Nii Lante should point out one facility his government did during the eight years of their tenure, we all saw how our stadia were deteriorated if not us our four stadia would have still be in a poor state till now even with the newly built Cape Coast Stadium they boost of, it was an initiative by President Kuffour in 2008.

“Nii Lantey should tell us what happened to the money his government gave him to construct the New Edubiase stadium,” Okudjeto jabbed.
