Despite assurances from the Sports Minister, volunteers have yet to receive any allowances after the Games ended.

The volunteers’ demand for allowances has sparked conflicts with personnel from the Ghana Police Service.

However, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has stated that there was no agreement to pay allowances to volunteers.
