The Black Stars bonuses of US$63,000 have not been paid by
government which ignited fears of a boycott of the 2012 Africa Cup of
Nations qualifier against Sudan on Sunday.

minister Nii Nortey Dua and CEO of the Nations Sports Council Worlanyo
Agra met the players on Wednesday night to spell out plans to settle the
unpaid cash.

of unpaid bonus has raised its ugly head in the Black Stars as prompt

would boost their qualification to the 2012 African Cup scheduled for
Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, who are co-hosting the event.
