A known sympathizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Appiah Stadium, wants President John Dramani Mahama to order the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) to investigate reassigned Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, accusing him of being the cause of Ghana’s shambolic World Cup preparation.
According to Appiah Stadium, the former Sports Minister does not deserve to be called honorable after Ghana’s embarrassing World Cup campaign in Brazil, adding Elvis Afriyie Ankrah must be made to cough up the monies he allegedly lavishly expended.
Speaking in an interview with Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, host of Okay Fm’s “Adeakye Abea” Morning Show, Appiah Stadium noted that President Mahama is surrounded by many bad people serving in his administration, and specifically named Elvis Afriyie Ankrah and Joseph Yamin, former Deputy Sports Minister as typical examples of worst ministers in Mahama’s administration.
“Elvis Afriyie Ankrah does not deserve to be called honorable because he has failed as a minister and he must stand for trial for the bad leadership he exhibited in Brazil. I will wish the President suspends Elvis’s new assignment to the Presidency and nail him on the cross together with his deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin. While Elvis Afriyie Ankrah was destroying things in Brazil, Joseph Yamin was saying things that will divide Ghanaians to pray against the Black Stars’ success. Elvis has disgraced himself in Brazil; I won’t be bias because I criticized the 2006 World Cup government delegation and even accused some officials of sleeping with girls and so I will boldly speak out about the wrongs done by some officials in 2014 World Cup under President Mahama…I witnessed some of the officials and players misbehaving with some of the female World Cup Ambassadors……we don’t know how our money was used in the World Cup; President Mahama must ask EOCO to investigate Elvis Afriyie Ankrah because he was the cause of the woes in the Black Stars Camp in Brazil,” he asserted.
