“Based on our discussion the government insist that we should maintain our bonuses and for the record, the 2010 figure was $75,000 and so we should maintain the 2010 figure because we are all going through challenges,” he told Accra-based Power FM.

“[Winning bonuses] will also be maintained.”

Cabinet over the weekend approved US$ 9.6m budget for Ghana’s participation for this June’s tournament.
