“We are also pleading with the Regional Minister, the First Lady Rebeccaa Akufo-Addo and the Women Caucasus in parliament to also come on board”.
Evelyn-Nsiah Asare also revealed that the maiden CAF Women’s Champions League was borne out after a series of consultative meetings held during the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.
