Following the revelation of the President of the Ghana Football Association that he is in the dark regarding reported slash in the winning bonuses of the Black Stars, a member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, Hon. Isaac Asiamah, has described the Sports Minister as lacking the knowledge of leadership and says he must respect the GFA.

The Ghana FA Boss in a recent interview on Starr FM revealed that he is not aware of the widely publicised reduction in the bonuses of the Black Stars.

Before the Black Stars played Mozambique in June, reports were that the Sports Minister had met the leadership of the Black Stars to reduce their winning bonus from $10000 to $8000 which the Minister admitted in some of his interviews.

And the MP for Atwima Mponua believes the minister is not demonstrating leadership.

"The Minister does not call players and start discussing bonus structure with them when there is management. What is the role of the management then?

"Nii Lante must respect the FA and perform his role well. What he has been doing is demonstrating that he doesn't understand leadership," he told Silver FM.
