2021 AFCON Probe: Andre Ayew Snubs Parliament

    Chairman of Ghana’s Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports Johnson Adu has hinted that Black Stars captain Andre Ayew could face sanctions for declining an invitation to face the legislators following the country’s disastrous 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

    The Al Sadd forward was billed to appear before the fact-finding committee after the country’s worst campaign in the continental tournament.

    But the former Swansea City man is reported to have failed to appear before the committee despite several reminders.

    And the chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, Honourable Johnson Adu has hinted to a local radio station that the Black Stars leader could face sanctions.

    “We are done with our work, we will present our report to the 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, 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.
