“Attitude towards Black Queens is disrespectful”- Woyome

Accra, A former Chairman of Parliamentary select committee on Youth, Sports and Culture, Mr. Kobena Mensah Woyome has described as disrespectful the attitude and preparations towards the hosting the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations by Ghana.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced Ghana would host the next Africa Women Cup of Nations in 2018 and Mr. Woyome in addressing parliament on the 2018 budget on sports development took note of the bad attitude towards preparations ahead of the tournament.

There has been concerns if we are ready to host this event, we have to find solutions to this.

If we are respecting sports development policies, why are we not respecting the upcoming event and the Queens’ preparations towards that event.

We would have given this a massive attention if it was about the Black Stars, so in this case we are not respecting the policies,” he added.

The continent’s football governing body gave Ghana the nod after its experience of successfully hosting previous CAF tournaments, with Ghana hosting the 2009 African Youth Championship and the 2000 and 2008 Africa Cup of Nations and recently the CHAN tournament.
