Further to President John Dramani Mahama’s promise to investigate Ghana’s most shameful Would Cup participation in the on-going FIFA World Cup in Brazil, his newly appointed Youth and Sports Minister, Hon. Mahama Ayariga has tasked a three member team to lead the review process.
Justice Senyo Dzamefe, an Appeals Court Judge has been appointed as Chairman of the committee.
The other members of the committee include ace sports broadcaster and lawyer Moses Foh Amoaning and Sports enthusiast Kofi Anokye Owusu Darko.
The committee has thirty  days to present their report to the Minister on which government will take the necessary actions on any culprit.
The terms of Reference for the Committee are:
a. To enquire into matters relating to Ghana’s Black Stars team’s preparation for the tournament and possible lapses therein which might have caused their early exit from the tournament;
b. To inquire into matters relating to the management of the Ghana Black Stars team and events in their camp during the tournament;
c. To inquire into matters relating to Ghana’s treatment of Ghanaian football fans who were sent to support the Black Stars by the Ministry of Youth and Sports;
d. Advice government on the financing of activities of the Senior National Team and other national teams; and
e. To inquire into all other related matters of public interest concerning the organization of Ghana’s Black Stars’ participation in the tournament.
Issues which include players’ indiscipline, player-management bout and the much talked about embarrassing airlifting of $3 million cash on a presidential jet, an act which made Ghana a subject of worldwide mockery will be probed.
In a statement signed by Mahama Ayariga, Government said it “will act on the recommendation of the committee”.
Adding that, “Government believes that a forward-looking inquiry will expose lapses to engender reforms to improve the organization of Ghana’s participation in future football tournaments.”
