Deputy Sports Minister, Hon. Pius Enam Hadzide

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has reinstated, with immediate effect, the Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, Pius Enam Hadzide, and the Chairperson of the Board of the National Sports Authority, Kwadwo Baah Agyeman, following the completion of investigations into the “Australia Visa Scandal” by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.

About 60 Ghanaians who posed as journalists were arrested and deported from Australia for false identities

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 co-ordinate all Ghana’s activities during the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

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.

The report of the enquiry into the allegations, which was submitted to the President on Friday, 6th July, 2018, contained no adverse findings against them.
