Asiamah on a Mission to Destroy Me but He’II Fail

Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has slammed the current Minister, Mr Isaac Asiamah for failing to engage him on the alleged missing GHc1.6 million meant for the New Edubiase Sports Stadium.

The MP for Odododiodoo constituency was worried the minister who is also a legislator failed to ask him about the matter and has come public with the issue in an attempt to denigrate him.

The current Sports Minister, Mr Isaac Asiamah has revealed before parliament that, his ministry cannot trace the source of funding for the New Edubiase Sports Stadium.

According to the Sports Minister, the funding for the project was not captured in the budget for 2015 and 2016, and there is no evidence of sponsorship for the project.

The minister further disclosed that, a payment of one million, six hundred and fifty thousand, two hundred and seventy-one Ghana Cedis (GH?1,650,271.00) had been received in cash by the construction company in charge of the project, Shakdeen Limited from the then Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye.

The issue has been referred to the BNI to investigate.

Reacting to the issue on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5FM, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, disputed the claims and jabbed the current minister for peddling lies about him.

According to him, he was not the Bank of Ghana to be paying contractors.

“I am not an accountant of the Ministry of Youth and Sports. As a minister, I don’t handle money. So I don’t make payments. I don’t pay cash. I don’t pay money to anyone. I don’t write cheques because I am not a Chief Director too.”

“So if any payments were done, the payments were done by the Ministry of Youth and Sports through the officials of the Ministry of Youth and Sports mandated by law to do those things and not me,” the former Minister insisted.
