2014 World Cup: Ghana’s commission of inquiry reveals committee to ensure implementation of recommendations

Chairman of Ghana’s 2014 World Cup Commission of Inquiry, Justice Senyo Dzamefe has revealed that they have set up a Report Implementation Strategy Committee to ensure that its recommendations are fully implemented.

A commission review colloquium or seminar will be held every three months to ensure that the progress of the implementation of their recommendations is fully and consistently monitored.

Justice Senyo Dzamefe said the report of the work he and his colleagues did will not be left unattended to, as has been the case with previous reports.

He said this at the Flagstaff House in Accra where the presentation of the Commission’s report took place upon the invitation of President John Dramani Mahama.

The Commission was set up in August 2014 under CI 81 and it sought to find the reasons behind the group stage exit of the Black Stars from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the treatment of Ghanaians fans during the tournament and the means of financing of football and other sports in Ghana.

Justice Dzamefe said that the Commission’s recommendations would have to be implemented fully and there were measures to ensure that.

”One unique feature of the CI establishing the Commission is for us to make sure that our recommendations are implemented. We have thus set up a Report Implementation Strategy Committee to see to this. A lot of Commissions have their reports and recommendations shelved but we have gone a step further to make sure that ours are put into action.

“We have recommended a quarterly commission review colloquium so that after every three months, we ask if our recommendations are being implemented. We do not want ours to gather dust like what happened to the Gbadebe Commission’s Report. We want ours to be implemented.”

The Dzamefe Commission ended sittings in November 2014 after speaking to 87 witnesses.

After that, it had to put together its report which has now been presented to the President who has forwarded the report to the Attorney General for study and advice.
