Coach Akonnor and his assistant were engaged by the GFA in January 2020, with the ministry expected to pay their monthly salary through an arrangement with the Ghana National Petroleum Company (GNPC).

The former Black Stars captain has been at the helm of affairs for the senior national team for about 12 months and is expected to earn $25,000 per month pay.
