The Minister for Youth and Sports nominee, Mustapha Ussif says the investigative report into the Australia visa scandal that rocked the country’s participation at the 2018 Commonwealth Games should be made public.

More than 60 people were deported from Australia for posing as journalists to enter the country during the games in April 2018.

The scandal led to the suspension of the then Director General of the National Sports Authority, Robert Sarfo-Mensah, and Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, Pius Enam Hadzide.

The National Investigation Bureau launched an investigation into the alleged fraud and President Akufo-Addo later cleared Mr Hadzide based on the report but Mr Sarfo-Mensah remained suspended.

However, the report was never made public and details of how the fraud was orchestrated remain secretive.

Making his appearance before the vetting committee of Parliament, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Yabaga-Kubori said he will pursue the publication of the report once he comes into office.
