"Since I assumed office I have complied with everything in the Government white paper on the Dzamefe Commission report," the Sports Minister said.

"We were tasked not give national teams cash and as we speak we never give them cash, everything goes through their bank account in cedi equivalent."

The Dzamefe Commission of Enquiry was set up by former President John Mahama into look into matters that caused the abysmal performance of the senior national team, the Black Stars in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Government on June 2015 released the White Paper on the report of a Commission of Enquiry. 

The committee made numerous recommendations which government divided into three categories; those accepted, those accepted with modifications, and those rejected.
