Ghana’s Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah is set to incur the wrath of FIFA as he is neck-deep in masterminding the banning of candidates for the Ghana FA presidential elections in favour of Nana Yaw Amponsah, insiders close to the government official have told Ghanasoccernet.com.
Sources say a government-leaning candidate Cudjoe Fianoo has been told by the Minister to fold his ambitions and back Amponsah as Asiamah seeks to install his candidate as the new Ghana FA President so he can control the federation, contrary to FIFA laws.
The minister is also wooing some clubs executives the ministry sponsored to go to the AFCON to act as campaign officers for Amponsah to force club executives to vote for the former FIFA Match Agent or Intermediary.
The world governing body’s laws strictly forbid government interference in the sport and could potentially lead to a ban or an embarrassment to the government.
A firm report on this matter sent to FIFA could spark an investigation and halt the electoral process which must be free from government influence.
