According to a report by AsempaNews.com, Nana Aba recounted how the sports minister had engaged her in a verbal assault in one of the studios at GBC while she was busy reporting news.

Herbert Amponsah Mensah is a Ghanaian businessman and sports administrator and the president of the Ghana Rugby Association operating as the Ghana Rugby Football Union.

She believes Nii Lante did not possess the decorum to hold such na sensitive position.
