Stop the cheap politics and focus on policies – GFA replies Okudzeto Ablakwa

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has cautioned North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, to desist from engaging in cheap political commentary.

In an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, Nana Oduro Sarfo, an Executive Council member of the GFA said Mr Ablakwa needed to stop meddling in cheap political commentary and focus on his mandate to influence policymaking.

Oduro Sarfo was reacting to North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablawa’s expose on the Sports Ministry’s budget for AFCON 2023.

In a social media post, the NDC MP published an official government document that showed the country allocated in excess of $8.5m for the tournament in Côte d’Ivoire.

Speaking on Asempa FM on Tuesday, Oduro Sarfo first claimed that the MP made the document public as a diversionary tactic.

“He may have published the details to influence public discourse and deflect our focus from important issues. Maybe he did not like the fact that the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary Primaries were peaceful, free and fair,” he said.

Or because he does not want Ghanaians to talk about the resumption of work on the National Cathedral.”

Oduro Sarfo doubled down by asking the MP to focus on his core mandate.

“He should concentrate on his job of passing bills in Parliament and stop engaging in small, small cheap politics in football.

“It is not the best,” he concluded.
