The Chair of Ghana’s Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, Honourable Johnson Adu has revealed that Andre Ayew the Black Stars captain could face series of sanctions for declining an invitation to face the legislators following the country’s shambolic performance in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The Al Sadd attacker was charged to appear before the committee after the nation’s worst campaign in the continental tournament.
But the former Swansea City man has not honoured the invitation to appear before the committee despite several attempt by committee to keep him informed.
The Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, Honourable Johnson Adu has hinted to a local radio station that the captain of the Black Stars could face serious sanctions.
“We are done with our work, we will present our report to floor of Parliament tomorrow,” he told Angel FM
“We are not happy about something, the captain of the team Dede Ayew has refused our invitation, we’ve tried to talk to him on Zoom, but with no success.
He claimed Ayew refused to attend the meeting after returning home to watch the 2022 World Cup first leg playoff against Nigeria in Kumasi.
“When he came for the Nigeria game in Kumasi we invited him again, but he didn’t come.
“I won’t say much, but tomorrow all of us will know what is in the report,” he concluded.
It’s unclear the kind of punishment that could possibly be meted out to the star forward.
