Captain of Ghana Women’s National Team, Elizabeth Addo, has lamented on social media about the neglect the Black Queens are suffering in the hands of the Ghana Football Federation.
Addo, who was instrumental in ensuring that Ghana claimed bronze at the 10th Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, was then rewarded with a nomination for the annual CAF Awards.
The list of nominees were on January 4 trimmed from five to three, leaving Addo, Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala and Cameroon’s Gabrielle Onguene as the final three to vie for the award.
However, with the 2016 Glo-CAF Awards Gala set for today, Thursday, 5 January 2017 at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, Nigeria, Addo feels she has been denied a chance to enjoy a special moment in her career.
“It’s such a heartbreaking story when an ordinary Ghanaian girl like me works their socks off, sweat the hell out of their pores to put on a shirt and represent her beloved country, Ghana, just to bring honors and joy to the people, only for her hard work to be smacked back in her face by authorities as though she is an alien,” Addo posted on Instagram.
“If the government have still refused to pay the Black Queens our monies, can’t I at least enjoy the privilege of being present at the Glo Caf awards which I’m a nominee too?”

It's such a heartbreaking story when an ordinary Ghanaian girl like me works their socks off, sweat the hell out of their pores to put on a shirt and represent her beloved country ~Ghana 🇬🇭~ just to bring honors and joy to the people, only for her hard work to be smacked back in her face by authorities as tho she is an alien 👽. If the government have still refused to pay the Black Queens our monies, can't I at least enjoy the privilege of being present at the Glo Caf awards which I'm a nominees too? Aww Yehowa 🙉🙉. Just cuz no Black Star player made the list in any of the categories, a nomination for me Elizabeth Addo, a poor Black Queens player is regarded redundant. Thank you GFA and Ghana for denying me such an opportunity. #Sad_Story_Of_A_Ghanaian_Female_Footballers #God_Is_Watching
