One of the representatives from the Northern Province, Veronica Kadiatu Hallowell who participated in the three day activities of women and Sports commission disclosed to Awoko that she was happy for the three day activities of the commission.
She further stated that people always say that they in the North do not participate in sporting activities but the authorities in the Northern Region who knows very well that we are participating appointed us to represent the region this programme.
Veronica said that it was a big challenge for them when they go back they are going to make sure that what they have learnt will pass on to their colleagues who did not attend the programme.
Veronica also stated that they too will try to organize the same programme in the Northern as Freetown is not Sierra Leone and they will want to do it better after what they have learnt so far.
She said the women are taking active part in Sporting activities in the Northern Region that is why they always invite them to participate all around the country.
Veronica averred that this programme is sending the message to the men that women are also capable to play active part in sports and that what men can do they too can do it better.
