Leader of the Minority group, Haruna Iddrisu in supporting the motion was optimistic that, this newly introduced Committee would help check the Auditor General to be on the alert that, there is another body that would be at their outfit to check their accounts in order to promote proper accountability in the country.
Meanwhile, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Joseph Osei Owusu has tasked the Youth and Sports Committee of Parliament to probe what led to the abysmal performance of the Black Stars at the ongoing AFCON tournament.
This follows the criticism by legislators on the abysmal performance of the team and its management Committee at the tournament.
A ranking member on Youth and Sports Committee of Parliament who doubles as MP for South Tongu, Komla Mensah Woyome in making a statement on the floor of Parliament clearly indicated that even though Ghana has made significant strides and also suffered in an international football tournament in the past but non can be compared to the humiliating performance of the Black Stars at the AFCON 2021 tournament.
Also, the Legislator for OkaiKoi Central, Mr. Patrick Yaw Boamah backed calls for a probe especially on the selection of players into the Black Stars team because he doesn’t see why a player must have a ‘god father’ at the FA to qualify one to be part of the team rather than on merit.
