The chairperson of the Board of the National Sports Authority, Kwadwo Baah Agyeman has been suspended from office, with immediate effect.
His suspension follows the arrest and deportation of over 50 Ghanaians who were illegally entering Australia for the just ended Commonwealth Games.
A statement by Communications Director Eugene Arhin stated that the decision has been taken following preliminary investigations conducted into the circumstances that led to the arrest of some sixty (60) Ghanaians, who had allegedly attempted to enter Australia by false pretences, in the 21st Commonwealth Games.
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia communicated the decision of President Akufo-Addo to Mr Baah Agyeman on Tuesday, 17th April 2018 following the absence from the jurisdiction of the President, who is attending the 25th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, United Kingdom.
This comes after 60 Ghanaians who were in Australia for the upcoming Commonwealth games were detained and deported for acting as journalists.
