Deputy Sports Minister, NSA Board Chairman reinstated
President Nana Akufo Addo has reinstated Youth and Sports Minister, Puis Enam Hadzide and National Sports Authority Board Chairman, Kwadwo Baah Agyemang.
The duo were suspended after the visa scandal that hit the country in the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Over 60 Ghanaians who posed as journalists were flagged and subsequently deported from Australia after they were unable to produce concrete evidence to back their claim.
The Deputy Minister was asked to step aside for the role he played as head of the International Games Commission,a sub body set aside to coordinate all Ghana’s activities during the Commonwealth Games.
The case was referred to the National Security for investigations and subsequently led to the suspension of Deputy Sports Minister Pius Hadzide, NSA Director-General Robert Sarfo-Mensah and NSA Board Chairman Kwadwo Baah-Agyemang.
However, the President, at the NPP’s 2018 National Delegates Conference announced that Hadzide is without blemish and will resume work on July 9 2018.
