Pratt To Yammin: Anyone Who Politicizes Football…Is A Nation Wrecker
Kwesi Pratt Jnr., Editor-in-Chief of the Insight newspaper, has shot back at Deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin, over some comments the government appointee is said to have made regarding the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
Speaking on Peace FM‘s “Kokrokoo” morning show, Kwesi Pratt questioned the logic in the Deputy Minister’s remarks that majority of Ghanaian football fans to be airlifted to Brazil to watch the ongoing World Cup matches, will be NDC sympathizers.
Hon. Yamin had earlier stated that NDC activists will be given preferential treatment at the expense of other soccer fanatics on the political divide. He supported his position by stating emphatically that a similar thing was perpetuated during the erstwhile Kufour regime.
But the senior journalist slammed him (Joseph Yamin) for making such disparaging comments and warned him and others with similar mindset to refrain from politicizing sports which has proven to be a unifier in the country.
Stopping short of describing him as a nation wrecker, the seasoned journalist opined thus “any person who politicizes football, say this is NDC vrs NPP; he is a nation wrecker…dispense quickly with the NDC-NPP politics that you’re interspersing with soccer.”
