Member of Parliament of Adenta Hon. Kojo Adu Asare is calling for massive administrative changes at the National Sports Authority after two top officials were implicated by the Maputo All Africa Review Committee.

The five-man body was set-up by the Sports Ministry to investigate the country’s preparation, participation and performance at the multi-sport event in September last year.

The committee findings implicated Chief Executive of the National Sports Council and Erasmus Adukor who was head of Ghana’s contingent at the Games. It also pointed out that the Sports Council lacks managerial competence, institutionalized corruption and organization rot.

According to Hon Adu Asare who chaired the Swimming Association at the Games, the Sports Ministry must act swiftly by sacking those in charge at the Sports Authority.

“If there is any rot in an organisation, it is the head that should be held responsible”. He told JOY Sports

“I will conveniently call on the sports ministry to let the axe fall on anyone who in one way or the other is involved”.

“I think some of the brains at the sports authority are tired and there must be rested”.
