New Sports Minister unfazed by challenges of predecessors

Newly Appointed   Sports Minister Dr Mustapha Ahmed has exclusively told Joy Sports he is unfazed by the  challenges  his predecessors  faced.

If anything, he is rather encouraged to learn from those experiences through  a  comprehensive consultation process in order to be a better Minister.

Former Minister  Mahama Ayariga was reassigned to  the Ministry of Science and Environment by Ghana President John Mahama in his latest ministerial reshuffle which paved way for the  dental surgeon and  Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso North Constituency to be appointed Sports Minister.

He is the seventh minister in six years of the NDC administration.

Dr Ahmed told JOY Sports in his first interview after his appointment said he is  confident of evading the “landmines” that trapped ex-sports ministers.

“What you call a landmine could well serve as experience or warning signings for a new person who is  going into a place where people have threaded before and have tripped on the mine, so you know you need to tread cautiously.

I believe all these experiences will inform my actions and decisions that will be taken. I am hopeful proper consultation will help avoid major pitfalls”

“The consultation process has started and it’s like work in progress”.

Dr Ahmed who is also a member of the Education, Youth, Sports and Culture Committee in Parliament has the All Africa games in September,  Black Stars  qualification for Africa Cup of nations in 2017 and Ghana’ bid to host AFCON 2017 as his immediate assignments.
