As the only candidate running for the Women’s Football Clubs spot on the GFA Executive, she also serves on the management committee of Ghana’s National Under 17 female football team.

Speaking on her vetting, the football administrator who doubles as co-owner of Berry Ladies observed how it is seeking for the position without facing any opposition.

“Every election is difficult even when you are going unopposed it’s difficult because without seeing them-election committee- and they passing me, it means that am still not a candidate.

After they pass me, then it means that am a candidate – which means that am an EXCO member automatically and awaiting to be sworn in,” she told journalists.

The management committee member of the National Under 17 female football team, the Black Maidens believes women should be given more slots to help develop football in the country.

“I believe hopefully we can have more women representation, more women to come on board.”
