The Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports agreed to look into the events leading up to Ghana's poor performance at the 2021 African Cup of Nations.
Andre Ayew, the captain of the Black Stars, was invited to testify before the committee but did not show up despite several warnings.
According to Johnson Adu, Chairman of Ghana's Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, the Black Stars skipper could face punishment as a result of his defiance of Parliament.
"We've completed our work and will give our findings to the House of Commons tomorrow," he told Angel FM.
"We are dissatisfied with something; the team's captain, Dede Ayew, has declined our invitation; we have attempted to communicate with him by Zoom, but to no avail."
After coming home to watch the 2022 World Cup first leg playoff versus Nigeria in Kumasi, he said Ayew refused to attend the meeting.
"We invited him back for the Nigeria game in Kumasi, but he didn't show up."
"I won't say much, but we'll all know what's in the report tomorrow," he ended.
The Ghanaian Black Stars were eliminated from the African Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon after failing badly in the group rounds.
The technical team, lead by then-head coach Milovan Rajevac, paid the ultimate price with his job after the disaster, but the inquest is far from over, as the Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports and Culture has begun its own investigation.
They want to know why Ghana was eliminated from the 2021 AFCON group stage, which included Comoros, Morocco, and Gabon.
Parliament's ability to impose sanctions or take action against Andre Ayew is still unknown.
