GFA officials tried to bribe me – Ex-Sports Minister


Former Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye has revealed officials of the Ghana Football Association tried to bribe him.

According to the Member of Parliament for Odododiodio, his fight against the Ghana FA was reasonable.

Vanderpuye was in an uproar relationship with the Ghanaian football authorities adding he’s the one who stopped their corrupt practices.

”It is not only Muntaka (Mubarak), but I know what led to the downfall of Rashid Pelpuo and several other ministers,” Ni Lantey said on Atinka TV’s Sports Court Show.

”There were attempts to bribe me, there were financial attempts made by GFA officials but I was smarter than them. I rejected envelopes that was sent to me without proper source.

”You have to ask why I never travelled with the national teams on their trips whiles I was in office. When a minister travels with the team, a lot of things happen.

”I have been in this and I know. Whiles on trip with the team, they’ll bring you an envelope full of money in dollars and you’ll not even be allowed to sign for it.

”I will say some of the previous sports ministers were not so much on top of football issues and so they made some payments and approved budgets which were way off.

”It is not only Inusah Fuseini who planted a camera in his office. I also had a camera and I recorded all the suspicious meetings I had in my office.

”There are a lot of things that I have kept because I know that if I break silence, it will not end well for Ghana football.”
