Nii Lante Antagonised the GFA – Kwesi Nyantakyi

President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has tagged out-going sports minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye as an antagonist claiming he opposed the association’s plans.

Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye had a frosty relationship with the GFA leading to the Black Stars poor run of form in six consecutive games without a win.

Under his administration, the Black Stars players were forced to buy their own plane tickets to honour an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier raising eyebrows.

The GFA boss in an interview with the press after his outfit’s extraordinary Congress on Monday claimed the minister antagonised the FA.

“Sports Minister was antagonistic to us. Anyway, now he belongs to history. Forget about him,” he said.

Nii Lante failed to attend the Ghana Football Association Congress on Monday in his last meeting with stakeholders of the game. Vanderpuye is set to vacate his post after his political party lost Wednesday’s Presidential Elections.
