The former Minister of Sports, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has stated his preparedness to appear before a Presidential inquiry into the circumstances surrounding what many describe as, Ghana’s disgraceful showing at the World Cup, in Brazil.
According to the Hon. Afriyie Ankrah, the Commission would present an opportunity to let Ghanaians know his version of what transpired at the World’s football festival in Brazil, although he has already been vilified in the media.
“…I am prepared to speak at the commission…I have been vilified and all sorts of things have been said about me, so the Commission gives me an opportunity to tell my side of the story,” he said confidently.
Hon. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, who was the leader for the Ghanaian contingent to the World Cup was reshuffled to the Presidency as a Minister of State even before his return from Brazil.
He made these comments on Radio Gold’s “Tea Cup” programme just before the Presidential Commission starts its work.
The Chairman of the Commission, Justice Senyo Dzamefe, has, however, hinted that the suspended Ghana midfielders, Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng, are likely to appear before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the disgraceful Black Stars’ World Cup campaign in Brazil.
The duo were suspended and sent bag packing from the global football fiesta over issues of insubordination.
Nonetheless, Hon. Elvis Afriyie Ankrah was optimistic about the fact that he would have the chance to state the occurrences in the Black Stars’ camp in Brazil as he knows it.
