“PEOPLE SELL THEIR DIGNITY FOR NOTHING” – ABDUL RASHID HASSAN PELPUO

Member of Parliament for Wa Central Constituency, Honourable Rashid Hassan Pelpuo claims it is a shame that people sell their dignity for nothing, after watching the much talked about “Anas Exposé” on corruption in Ghana football.
He disclosed this in an interview on Pink FM’s morning show Omanbapa Kasa hosted by Kofi Asamoah Aning.
In the video premiered by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, top football officials, businessmen and Ghana Football Association executives are seen involving themselves in acts of bribery and corruption. These officials were motivated by money and did what they shouldn’t have done.
It is on record that the former president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi challenged the general public to produce evidence when allegations were made against the Ghana Football Association some years ago.
According to Rashid Pelpuo, there were no traces of corruption during his tenure of office as the Minister of Youth and Sports under the late John Evans Atta-Mills Administration.
He saw “Kwesi Nyantakyi as someone who was mindful of the law, upright in the offices that he took and distinct”.
The former Minister of Youth and Sports also commented on the government’s involvement in the affairs of the Ghana football association. Currently the Ghana football Association has been dissolved. This is as a result of the huge embarrassment caused by the GFA.
He described the contents as one that has brought disgrace and also had an impact on the reputation of Ghana.
Corruption is fuelled by perception revealing contrast between the National Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress in terms of corrupt practices. This was asserted Rashid Pelpuo.
He further explained that, corrupt practices levelled against the previous government was perceived and did not have any empirical evidence however, the corrupt practices against the ruling government are not only perceived but backed with factual evidences such as the Euro Bond and the report about government being complacent on issues with regards to oil revenue.
