Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Curtis Perry Kwabla Okudzeto, has taken a swipe at former sports minister, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye for claiming the ruling government has done nothing in the sports sector.
The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency has emphatically claimed there is no need for the current government to construct its ten multipurpose complexes in the country.
However, according to Mr. Okudzeto, 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 been 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.
