Private Legal practitioner, Yaw Oppong has adviced Sports Minister, Mahama Ayariga not to further heighten the frustrations citizens are experiencing with his rude posturing towards the media.

According to Mr Oppong, the least the minister can do to appease Ghanaians is to release the full accounts on how the nation’s money was spent at the AFCON, as people are already fed up tih the various economic and social challenges facing the nation.

People are already fed up – don’t heighten it or enhance it by talking this way. Let people not feel that they are not accountable to us…already, there is so much despondency in the system…these may not be ordinary times, we are in an emergency and this government has referred to this dumsor situation as an energy crisis,” he said.

Lawyer Oppong advised the Minister saying, “power is virtually taking him from one level that we all know him to a different level which is not good for him.”

He clarified that Ghanaians did not vote for any Minister, hence, Mr. Ayariga is a subordinate to the President and “his acts are the acts of the President and so he cannot put out this kind of posture as if there is no need for accountability at all.

My money is maintaining you,” he fumed, adding that, “…it is that which is paying you for you to perform your functions for us. In short, you are a servant and you should hold yourself as a servant only…we are the masters and if you don’t see yourself that way and you put up a posture that bothers on some exhibition of rude misconduct, it is very offensive.

Mahama Ayariga is quoted to have claimed that journalists in the country ask questions that are most often “useless” in his eyes. This was after pressure was mounted on him to give a detailed account of the amount government spent during the just ended African Cup of Nation games in Equatorial Guinea.

The minister, Mahama Ayariga, has been defiant about apologizing, stating that it is high time someone stood up against the media in Ghana.
