Black Star skipper Asamoah Gyan is the latest to express disgust about the 2014 World Cup Commission of Inquiry.
The Dzamefe’s led Commission, was set up after the 2014 World Cup to look into reasons why Ghana failed miserably at the tournament.
It invited Gyan to its sitting in 2014 and after its findings, recommended that captain of the Black Stars should be taken to a leadership training, as he was indicted for not controlling affairs when players revolted in row over winning bonus.
But in a recent media interaction the President of the nation Nana Addo claimed had forgotten about the Commission's report, a statement that has rekindle debates on the necessity of the commission's establishment.
Gyan, who seemed emboldened by the President's total disregard for the Commission, has rubbished the call on him to enroll in a leadership school, saying he was already "doing a lot in the economy."
“The Commission wasn’t fair to me at all. I have done my best for Ghana by creating jobs in the country,” he said in an interview with Accra-based Hot FM
“In Ghana i have employed 300 people and i pay them every month, I also pay taxes. So i’m doing my best in Ghana’s economy. I haven’t been to a leadership school but i have been doing a lot in the economy.”
“When i moved from England to UAE, people said i moved because of money, when i moved to China they said the same thing. I will say the money I got is what i’m investing in the country, i have created jobs in the nation. For me the Commission has not been fair to me."
Some members of the FA have criticized the Dzamefe Commission, saying it was established to witch-hunt some members of the Association, adding that it has affected the image of the Black Stars.
However Lawyer and member of the Justice Dzamefe Commission of Inquiry, Moses Foh-Amoaning, has refuted that claim believes that the commission's work has not hurt the image of the Black Stars.
