Sports Minister refused to pay bribe

Ghana’s Sports Minister, Nii Lantey Vanderpujye has revealed he refused to pay a bribe for the qualification of the Black Satellites to the Africa Youth Championship.

According to the “firebrand” minister, the Ghana Football Association wanted to involve him in some “suborning”, but he refused.

He opined that the GFA requested him to put in place measures to ensure the Black Satellites defeated their Senegalese counterparts convincingly at the Cape Coast Stadium last Friday.

But, Nii Lantey Vanderpujye, who described himself as an honest leader said, he refused the request because he does not involve himself in certain “scandalous” acts.

The FA during the game against Senegal wanted me to do things which I refused. I stated clearly to them that I will not be involved in certain acts. And so I refused to do those things which they asked me to do during the game against Senegal,” he added.

I don’t want to reveal things on air. I don’t want to say certain things on the radio. I don’t know the kind of motivation the Black Satellites Management Committee member is talking about,” he told Country Man Songo on Adom TV’s Fire for Fire.
