Former Sports Minister and member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye has profusely raised a red flag against the Ghana Football Association President Kwasi Nyantakyi, claiming that if he has a vote for the upcoming 2019 GFA presidential elections, he will vote against him.
Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye had a frosty relationship with the GFA leading during his tenure as the boss of the Sports Ministry during an interview with Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports stated categorically that he would vote against Nyantakyi in the 2019 election if he had a mandate to cast a vote.
“If I have a vote, I will not think a minute but will vote against President Nyantakyi. My decision will not be based on personality but under his watch, our football has dropped drastically,” Hon. Nii Lante told Happy FM.
When asked how he will take it should the FA president rescind his decision not to contest again in the 2019 elections he said,
“I will be much surprised if Nyantakyi rescinds his decision not to contest the GFA presidential position in 2019. If he stands by his word, it will save him some dignity.”
He further advised voters of the football Association that, “Before anyone votes, we must think of how the football is faring now and the level we want to take our football. Voting shouldn’t be based on the relationship but based on competencies of the respective contestants but was quick to add that, President Nyantakyi has shown that he has lost his focus and hence must bow out.”
