The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the African Games has agreed to compensate volunteers for the just-ended 2023 African Games held in Accra with an allowance of GHC1,000.

This follows protests by the volunteers over unpaid stipends allegedly promised to them by the organizers.

A statement by the LOC, signed by the Executive Chairman, Dr. Kwaku Ofosu-Asare indicated that the volunteers must confirm their status by Monday, April 8 to receive payment.

“To expedite the payment process, volunteers are requested to cooperate with the Volunteers Sub-committee’s management to validate their names and mobile money numbers by the close of business on Monday 8th April 2024.”
