President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he will be reinstating suspended Deputy Sports Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide.
Pius was suspended after a visa scandal rocked the country in the wake of the Commonwealth games.
About 60 persons who claimed to be journalists and were in Australia to cover the Commonwealth games were arrested and repatriated for bearing false identities.
Even though it is not clear how they obtained visas to travel out of the country, reports suggest some officials from the National Sports Authority (NSA) as well as the ministry of sports facilitated the fraudulent visa acquisitions. This led to the suspension of the Deputy Minister and Acting Director General of the NSA, Robert Sarfo Mensah.
But speaking to delegates at the New Patriotic Party’s National Delegates Conference, Saturday, President Akufo-Addo said the investigation on the visa scandal has been completed and per the report, the Deputy Minister is innocent.
“I will reinstate him on Monday…” he added
