    Default International Olympic Committee suspends Ghana



    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) suspended the Ghanaian national committee on Thursday after the government failed to take agreed steps to ensure no political interference in the body.

    An IOC official said Ghana became the second country to be banned following Kuwait last year, after efforts to ensure the Ghanaian Olympic Committee was protected from domestic political involvement failed.

    “They are now suspended,” the official told Reuters during an IOC Executive Board meeting.

    An official announcement is expected later in the day.

    Ghana's sporting authorities must wake up and do the right thing. Didn't the GOC see this coming ? Oh Ghana, when oh when !

    It's appalling to see how low these factions (Francis Dodoo and BT Baba)have sunk with each party claiming to be working in the interest of Ghana sports. Now we have been banned,what next ? Must we be threatened with bans and suspensions before we sit up ?
