The Ghana government has rejected large parts of the recommendations by the Dzamefe Commission’s report into the country’s participation in the 2014 World Cup and modified other parts of the body’s final recommendations.

This comes after government issued its white paper on the commission’s report indicating that not all the expected toxic recommendations has been accepted by the government which is aware of the legal ramifications.

That is because any controversial recommendation can be contested in court which can prove to be an embarrassment to government.

These were announced by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, on Thursday, June 11 upon the release of government’s White Paper on the report.

Mrs Appiah-Oppong stressed that some of the recommendations were not accepted while modifications were made to others.

‘The next step after the issuance of this White Paper is the implementation of the recommendations, which have been accepted, as well as those accepted with modifications,’ she said.

The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) will investigate further officials who have been implicated in the report of the World Cup Commission set up by President John Dramani Mahama following Ghana’s poor run at Brazil 2014.

This is one of the recommendations made by the Commission after months of public as well as in-camera hearings.

The three-member Commission also recommended the setting up of three committees to see to the implementation of its recommendations.

Among its recommendations, the Commission – made up of Chairman Justice Senyo Dzamefe, Moses Foh-Amoaning and Kofi Anokye Owusu-Darko – said supporters must seek their own sponsorship to attend tournaments ‘and the state should, as a matter of policy, not directly employ public or state funds to airlift, accommodate and feed supporters.’
