The ever convincing Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has accused the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government of failing woefully in the development of sports in the country.
Sammy Gyamfi who was speaking to Asempa FM accused the government of impeding sports development in Ghana, questioning why the ruling New Patriotic Party has failed to see to the completion of the season of the Ghana Premier League and Division One League.
“There is no President in history has hampered the progress of football and sports development that President Akufo Addo and his government.”
“They will go down in history as the worse government. The Ghana Premier League has not successfully come to an end under this government due to their incompetence.
Even during the military era, football was played.”
“He has no interest in the game and he has disappointed everybody.”
He also addressed the government’s failure to follow up and prosecute the former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi after he was implicated in the ‘Number 12’ corruption expose saying it’s an indictment and indication of the President’s lack of interest in the development of football.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi was caught on tape using the name of the President to solicit for funds from investors and that video has ruined our game.”
“The utterances of Kwesi Nyantakyi was was damning but President Akufo Addo has decided to sit unconcern and that shows that he has no interest in the matter because Kwesi Nyantakyi is his friend.”
“This government has done nothing for football and I will urge all voters to vote for John Mahama for the development of football and our sports,” he added.
