New Sports Minister won't interfere in Ghana FA affairs
Sports Minister- designate Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah has promised to work in tandem with the Ghana Football Association and not harass them.
Afriyie-Ankrah disclosed this during his vetting by the before the Appointments Committee at the Parliament House in Accra.
He has promised to co-operate fully with the local football governing by playing his supervisory role well.
”I have no intention of interfering [in] the activities of the Ghana Football Association but as I’m representing the government, I would use whatever influence I have to bring to bear all the stakeholders to work towards achieving a common goal,” Afriyie-Ankrah said.
”The Government pumps money into football and Ghanaians deserve better.
“It’s a legitimate concern and I believe there must be engagements with the various football authorities.”
The relationship between the Ghana Football Association and Sports Ministry recently suffered a little with both parties not seeing eye-to-eye.
This affected the image of the Ghana FA with officials perceived to be corrupt.
