Odotei Sowah set to be named deputy Sports Minister

Hearts of Oak’s managing Director Vincent Sowah-Odotei is expected to be named Ghana’s deputy sports minister-designate, the Daily Guide has reported.

Odotei, who is the Member of Parliament for La-Dadekotopon Constituency on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party, has been pencilled down for the role.

Ghana President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to announce the names of his deputy ministers this week.

The former King Faisal Chief Executive is expected to be named as Isaac Asiamah’s deputy and will bring his rich experience to bear on the job.

His appointment is however an interesting one as he will have to combine working as a member of Parliament, managing affairs at Hearts of Oak and serving his constituency which voted him to Parliament.

Odotei lost to incumbent Kwesi Nyantakyi in his quest to become the Ghana FA boss 10-years ago.
