President suspends Deputy Sports Minister over Australia fake journalists scandal

Thisfollowspreliminary investigations by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service into the visa scandal involving about sixty (60) Ghanaians in the 21 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has disclosed that, before the controversial military deal between Ghana and the United States of America (US) became public knowledge, US President, Donald J. Trump called President Akufo-Addo to negotiate the terms involved.

The Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) welcomes the decision by the President to suspend from office with immediate effect the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Pius EnamHadzide and the acting Director General of the National Sports Authority, Robert SarfoMensah. "Kwadwo Baah Agyeman; and the Chef-de-Maison for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Mr Mohammed Sahnoon, have also been recalled from the Games to assist in investigations now being undertaken by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Police Service", a statement from the Presidency read.

Hadzide in an interview on Asempa FM said he was already aware that the President would not support any cover-ups in his government.

Mr Ablakwa further observed that the tough' demeanour the President showed while addressing "innocent" Ghanaians is underserved, charging Akufo-Addo to translate that robustness into negotiating deals that benefit the interest of Ghanaians.

SWAG president, Kwabena Yeboah, said the reported arrest, detention and deportation of the self-acclaimed journalists of questionable credentials, including some genuine sports journalists, was deeply worrying as it painted a negative picture not only about the profession but also on the nation as a whole.

They were recalled to assist investigation now being undertaken by the Criminal Investigative Department of the Police Service.

Also recalled is the Chef-de-Maison for 2018 Commonwealth Games, Mr. Mohammed Sahnoon.
