Elections are difficult – Gifty Oware-Mensah

Co-Owner of Malta Guinness Ghana Women’s Premier League side Berry Ladies, Gifty Oware-Mensah, has described elections as a “difficult” process even as a candidate running for a position unopposed.

Speaking in an interview with Citi Sports after getting vetted by the Election Committee of the 2023 Ghana Football Association (GFA) Elections, Oware-Mensah pointed out she isn’t out of the woods yet and needs to be cleared by the election committee first.

This year’s elections are to be held at the Redaach Hotel in Tamale with the football administrator penned in as the only candidate running for the Women’s Football Clubs spot on the GFA Executive Council.

“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 added a call for more women to be part of football administration in the future stating,

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

Aside co-owning Berry Ladies, Oware-Mensah serves on the management committee of Ghana’s National Under 17 female football team, the Black Maidens.
