"During his vetting,he enumerated his plans and visions; reviving juvenile football,ending Ghana’s AFCON trophy drought after thirty years,improving sports infrastructure as started by Hon Isaac Asiamah and paying much attention to lesser known sports."

I’m joining him to support and share in the vision of the ministry.I will help to ensure the vision of sports in this country is propagated," he added.
