Black Queens of Ghana has emulated their Nigerian counterparts, the Super Falcons, hit the streets to demand their $25,000 bonus arrears.
Ghana’s female national team, who came third at the 2016 Africa Women’s Nations Cup, are demanding the government pay their arrears from last year’s All African Games, where they won gold; the 2016 Olympic qualifiers and at last month’s AWCOM.
According to reports from the West African country, the Black Queens had planned the protest for Wednesday but shelved it after the President of Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, promised that the government would pay the arrears today.
Meanwhile, the dust is still in the air as the Super Falcons seem to have held the trophy that they won in Cameroon hostage. They will neither hand over the trophy nor leave the hotel if their entitlements and other allowances amounting to US$23,650 per player are not paid. An official of the team, however, has confirmed that some players “have received their alerts.”
