After successfully co-hosting the CAF Awards on Thursday, actress Juliet Ibrahim has spoken about her desire to help the advancement of women’s football in the country.
Speaking to Asempa FM on Ladies Time, Ibrahim spoke about her willingness when called upon to bring the women’s game forward.

You know I am already into football where my foundation organized an all female celebrity soccer match to raise funds for charity so I am ready to help. Football is not only for men. ”
