According to him, the government is impressed by the outstanding success of Hasaacas Ladies at the international level and it is ready to commit itself to the development of women’s sports in the country.
The Hasaacas Ladies team called in at the Jubilee House to express their gratitude to the Vice President, who donated $10,000 to them to prepare for the tournament. Team Coach, Yusif Basigi appreciated the efforts of Dr. Bawumia.
“Your Excellency, you set the pace and others followed. We could not have reached this far without your kind support” he said.
