Former Minister for Youth and Sports in the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuye has stated that politicians are culpable in the alleged visa disgrace that rocked the Ghanaian contingent in Gold Coast, Australia.

Mr Vanderpuye who is also Member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency in the Greater Accra region said until politicians desist from interfering in sports activities for the benefit of their party stogies the country would continue to face such disgraceful conducts during international sports tournaments.

The former Minister claimed that politicians use such international tournaments to satisfy their political followers by promising to take them abroad.

He also reiterates the Minority NDC’s call for a full scale independent investigation into the scandal to forestall future occurrences.
