“We are willing to work with new Sports Minister” – Ghana Rugby President
President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union, Mr.Herbert Mensah has meted out his advice for the minister designate for Youth And Sports Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye about how he should exhibit some kind of difference at the ministry in comparison to his predecessors who weren’t able to accomplish their task.
The former Chief executive of Kumasi Asante Kotoko lamented on the poor attention given to the minor sports and how the support was not forthcoming and hope things will be different with the new sports minister who is a former sports journalist.
In an extensive interview with the media at the Ghana Rugby league semi-finals, Mr. Herbert Mensah said “you know every time we get a new minister of sport my spill is the same,i welcome you on board wish you the best,and how you really understand your job of serving the people, we don’t care who you are. You are public official and his Excellency the President has put you there for a reason ,if you unlike you predecessors,understand you are there too serve,then we will work with you”.
He also emphasized the point about the minister being a media friendly person,as he has been in the business before,so he would expect a change as he takes office soon.
