According to him, ‘’the championship should have been underway by now but still awaits the endorsement of the first lady, and this is due to her tight scheduled.

“We have already secured the support of the FCT on the project but as a mark of honour, we have to seek her endorsement before going ahead. But as soon as that is sorted out, we shall kick-start the project.


“We have briefed the Nigeria School Sports Federation but without the endorsement of the first lady, we cannot do anything. The schools are already waiting for the commencement of the championship.” 


The national championship women's soccer began on Friday July 6 to Treichville Sports Park. In the opening match, the Joan of Arc Treiville bowed to the team Omness Dabou (0-6), when in the second match, Juventus Yopougon white washed  Djidjé Divo (13 -0).

Joan of Arc Treichville suffered the dictates of the Omness
In the first match between the Omness Dabou Joan of Arc Treichville, these are the girls from Dabou who were the strongest. Buoyed by their captain, Estelle Nahi, girls of Omness Dabou were quick to show their intentions. From the onset, the international Nahi Estelle broke into the opposing defense and scores twice  (2-0, 2nd-4th). Before the end of the first half, it's attacker Koko Angel bringing the score to 3-0.

On resumption, Joan of Arc Treichville had nothing left to bother their opponents. Unarmed girls Treichville underwent the dictates of their opponents. Three more goals were scored by Kouassi Nadège penalty spot (4-0, 61st), Estelle Nahi (5-0, 64th) and Koko Angel (6-0, 72nd).

Djidjé Divo, a victim of his lack of experience
This encounter being the second game served as the opening match of the 2012 season. Professor Cyrill Dah, Chairperson of the Commission of Sports Medicine, was alongside the President of the Women's Football Committee, Mrs. Bertha Adou, to kick off the meeting largely won by the girls from Yopougon (13-0).

Akaffou Rita opened the scoring with an individual display of brilliance (1-0, 8th).  Binta Diakite (11th, 23rd, 79th), Jeanne Gnago (15th, 16th, 30th), Tia Ines (19th), Koffi Nadege (53rd), Marie Jassy (57th, 63rd), Atsé Angel (65th), Nadege Esso (69th ) scored the last goals.

Promoted to the top flight this season, the team had no strength and determination against Juventus, which has in its ranks 70% of  women's national team players who all have several years of playing experience in the league.

Djidjé Divo was a victim of their lack of experience. "We have more experience than the  girls on the  Divo team," said the captain of Juventus, Gnago Jeanne at the end of the game.

19 goals were recorded for these two matches of the first day.
