Ranking Member of the Select Committee on Youth & Sports, Isaac Asiamah has told the Minister for Youth and Sports to go back to the classroom and learn what is expected from the position he is occupying rather than disturb the public with insults on whoever criticizes his performance.
In his view, Nii Lantey Vanderpuije, has since his appointment, demonstrated incompetence in the discharge of his duties as a Sports Minister and ought to have been sacked by the President by now.
Asiamah who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Atwima Mponua Constituency made this observation in an interaction with Kasapa FM on Tuesday.
He was responding to attacks on his persona by the Sports Minister for criticizing his performance.
Vanderpuije is reported to have said that the Ghana Premier League is not attractive.
However, Asiamah in response shifted the blame on the Sports Minister and challenged him to come out with pragmatic solutions to turn things around since it is his responsibility as the sector Minister to make the football league attractive.
He went further to call on the President to sack the Sports Minister for displaying incompetence on his job.
Vanderpuije who was not comfortable with the criticism in a message sent on a whatsapp platform belonging to a group of Sports Journalists is said to have described Asiamah as “Okuraseni” to wit villager who has connived with the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi and others to tarnish his hard earned reputation.
But the Atwima Mponua legislature responding to the message said he was very surprised that the Sports Minister has ignored responding to the issues he raised and rather chose to insult him.
“All that he is doing are part of the incompetence that I am talking about. He doesn’t know what he is doing. He has no knowledge about the Ministerial portfolio he’s handling and should go back to the classroom to learn. This will enable him to understand what is required of him better”, he noted.
