There appears to be a high demand for copies of the report of the Dzamefe Commission that delved into Ghana’s participation in the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup which were released onto the market recently by the State Publishing Corporation.

Barely a week after the state publishing agency also referred to as Assembly Press, announced the sale of copies to individuals and organizations, its offices have been flooded by people with interest to own copies.

Checks by the Times Sports yesterday indicated that 90 copies have been sold out of the first 100 copies released to it stores.

There is also an indication that additional copies would soon be released to meet the increasing demand for the report which was presented to President John Dramani Mahama at the Flagstaff House.

A source at Assembly Press indicated that the document was very voluminous and that delayed their work a little.

This, perhaps, explains why persons that rushed there early in the week for copies left in disappointment.

The source disclosed that majority of persons buying the copies of the report are those that were mentioned or made an appearance at the four-month sitting of the Commission that rounded off its activities in December, 2014.

“Any individual or an organization can buy one but so far those buying are those that appeared before the Commission or played any role before and after the competition.”

A copy of the report that was handed to the Assembly Press on Tuesday is sold for GH¢ 120.00.

The report comes in four parts expressing the various content issues were categorized.

The first part contains the introduction with the second part touching on core recommendations and general issues. Part three borders on Legacy recommendations and policy directions with the final part on practical measures to implement the core recommendations.
