Freelance Sports Journalist based in the USA, Sandy Asiedu, has stated Ghanaian leaders only respond to public backlash but not a public plea for a better Ghana.
In a chat on SVTV Africa, Sandy indicated that the government has turned a blind eye to other sports disciplines except football and boxing. According to Sandy, the others may not be the focus but needs to be managed properly.
“You will be watching football at the Tema sports stadium, and a snake will sneak up behind you. It’s sad because many people are talking in the same vein hoping that things will go well.
Our leaders don’t listen when we speak politely but let someone insult them with the same issues, and they get responses. Sadly, they have time to respond to such things and not intellectual conversations,” he said on ‘Daily Hustle Worldwide.’
As a Coordinator of the Wheelchair Basketball Federation, he works with physically challenged people who play basketball. He added that disabled athletes have won more medals than abled athletes, but the sports ministry and the government do not appreciate their efforts.
Currently based in Connecticut, Sandy has been a freelance journalist for over a decade. He has covered a lot of Black Stars games internationally, including the 2010 World Cup.
