Dansua To Serve As Role Model


Hon. Akua Sena DansuaIncoming Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon. Akua Sena Dansua has been described as a role

model by her former ministry in a congratulatory message yesterday.

The Ministry of Women and Children’s Affairs (MOWAC) commented upon the advent of a new chapter in sports leadership in Ghana, with Hon Sena Dansua in the saddle: “She would serve as a role model and an epitome of motivation”.

With this appointment, female involvement in Ghanaian sports is expecting a much-needed regeneration.

The appointment of the first female Youth and Sports Minister is a groundbreaking event, considering that the ministry is traditionally perceived to be the preserve of men.

MOWAC described this as a “laudable feat”, adding that the minister will hopefully ensure that Ghana joins the likes of the UK and Malaysia, in being a country where female incumbents have overseen successful sports ministries.

The ministry reassured: “It is our belief that she will bring her expertise, passion and other special qualities to bear to further advance issues and policies pertaining to youth and sports in our national development”.

This would be a welcome change from past occupiers of the ministry representing sports, which has admittedly had a high turnover of personnel in the past few years.
