George Afriyie, the former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has extended his appreciation to Mr. Kurt Okraku for the positive impact he has had on women’s football in the nation.
Women’s football in Ghana has made significant strides under the leadership of Mr. Okraku, who currently serves as the president of the GFA.
Despite their differences and Afriyie’s current bid to challenge Okraku for the GFA presidential seat, he openly praised the incumbent for his contributions to the development of women’s football.
“I lose nothing by speaking the truth. Kurt Okraku has improved our women’s football and it is something he must be applauded for,” he told Asempa FM.
“In the past, our Women’s League and clubs were not performing but today, they are doing well under Kurt Okraku and I will praise him for that,” he added.
The recent victory of Ampem Darkoa Ladies FC in the WAFU Zone B Women’s Championship, along with their representation of Ghana in the CAF Women’s Champions League, stands as evidence of the advancement of women’s football in the country.
Furthermore, under the guidance of Nora Häuptle, the Black Queens have displayed impressive performances and have remained undefeated since her appointment seven months ago. Their primary objective now is to secure qualification for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
