Former Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Joseph Yamin has hit back at honorable Yaw Osafo Marfo for labeling football corruption blame on the previous NDC administration.
During the launch of anti-corruption and transparency week, the Senior Minister said that corruption is the main reason behind the poor state of the local league.
Hon. Marfo also pointed out that corruption in officiating of football matches in premier division, has negatively affected Ghana football.
“Corruption in football got so deep after 2010 in this country and Ghanaian’s are no more interested in the Local league;are there any politicians there,”Osafo Marfo said.
The tough-talking Joseph Yamin has fumed vehemently on the former Sports minister assertion that corruption in football was on the rise in 2010.
“Bribery did not start in 2010 ,So corruption has been part of world football since infancy,”he told Adehye fm in an interview .
“If we want to fight corruption let’s fight it and stop given timelines to paint to the picture that football corruption started under NDC.
“What did Osafo Marfo did to fight corruption in Ghana football when he was a ministry ?. He is talking like a serial caller.
“The NPP in government painted as black to Ghanaian’s for not implementing the Brazil commission report but have they been able to work with the document since assuming office ,“he added.
Hon.Joseph Yamin believes that fighting football corruption is a holistic issue and it shouldn’t be politicized in any manner .
