Revealed; Reasons Why Deputy Sports Minister was Suspended

Scores of Ghanaians were deported from Australia after they were deemed to be non-genuine travellers posing as journalists for the Commonwealth Games.

According to Australian authorities, although all the affected persons had the necessary accreditation, they were not convinced the reported persons were real journalists.

Following this, the government referred the case to the National Security for investigations following which the suspensions were made.
