Progressing from the group stage to the round of 16 will increase the prize money from 9 million dollars to 13 million dollars, this according to the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif.

Despite much progress in the Ghanaian educational system, there are thousands of students in deprived communities who still study under sheds and sit on the floor.

John Dumelo believes investing the money into providing safe and comfortable learning environment will be of great service to the nation.
