He said he will judge sports ministers by how well they are going to promote and develop other disciplines apart from football.
He named hon. E. T. Mensah and Hon. Yaw Osarfo Marfo as his best sports ministers ever, but feels sports should be devoid from politics.

He commended the coach of the Cranes, prof. Kyle Plerce who has guided the team to many accomplishments like winning the 2016 SWAG Chairman of the Year, Team of the Year and nomination for Coach of the Year
Nunoo Mensah, who is also president of the Ghana Weightlifting Federation, hinted that very soon they are going to dominate the continent. He said many young athletes have shown interest in sports and they should be encouraged with scholarships and bursaries.
