Award-winning Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Okoro has revealed her ambition to be an ambassador for Women’s football when Ghana football resumes.
Football-related activities in the country have been brought to a standstill following the premiering of the Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ video that exposed the widespread of corruption in Ghana football.
Top officials of the game and match officials were fingered engaging criminal activities in their line of duty.
In an interview on Asempa FM’s Ladies Time show, the renowned actress said, ”I would love to be an ambassador for women’s football when the game resumes”.
Okoro further stated that she was willing to create awareness of the Women’s game which has been neglected by the football populace.
“It is my hope that women’s football will get the needed support to take a step ahead.”
In terms of the patronage and attention, males have always had a greater share of the support compared to females and even with some effort made to bridge the gap, the situation remains unchanged.
However, Okoro implored the GFA Normalization Committee to ensure that players on the local scene are paid well when football resumes in Ghana.
