Sports Minister Exposes …• Rodney Michael Bribed appeals committee • Dissolve S.L.F.A • Banned Elective Congress, But J.S. Keifala insists election must go on this Weekend
This week the controversial Youth and Sports Minister, Paul Kamara revealed to Eagle Radio 91.3 and C.T.N Radio 107.3 that his ban slammed on one of the Presidential aspirants in the upcoming SLFA Elections, Rodney Michael still stands and he further disclosed that Rodney issued a bribe to the Appeals Committee to the tune of One Hundred Million Leones so that he can once again be part of the race; adding that the Appeals Committee is illegal as they’re not approved by Congress.
Mr. Paul Kamara also revealed that he has dissolved the Football Association Executive and that no elective congress will take place at all, as he told listeners of both radio stations across the country.
The current F.A President, J.S. Keifala who was disqualified from contesting in the elective congress said he has been informed about the Minister’s action, which he said is not the responsibility of the F.A and assured that the elective congress must go on as scheduled for Saturday 15th September 2012 at the Sierra Leone Police Mess, Kingtom.
“We’ve notified delegates across the country and banning of the congress by a political figure is against FIFA regulation which will result to a ban from the world football governing body from participating in all international matches”, Keifala noted.
He therefore called on President Ernest Bai Koroma to play a leading role to avoid the consequences of a FIFA ban.
Delegates in favor of Rodney Michael have vowed to come out amass defiantly on Saturday to vote in Michael who according to them is the most competent candidate to improve football across the country.
The spokesman of Madam Isha Johansen, John Conteh also revealed that they are preparing for the weekend’s elective congress and that his candidate is the fittest to win the election.
Rodney Michael has told Sierra Express Media Sports that he has addressed his delegates and supporters to stay calm and be rest assured that he will beat all candidates hands down this weekend.
FIFA representatives will arrive in Freetown tomorrow, Thursday 13th to monitor the elections.
