The President urgent call came exactly three days after the Minister of Sports Ahmed Khanou in a joint press conference with the SLFA confirmed the rescheduling of the said congress which was slated for 25th February to March 5th, 2017.
President Koroma who also doubles as the President of the National Sports Council further committed that he is willing and can't wait to officially open the said congress himself as he urged the committee to try as fast as they can to resolve all protest and concerns.
The last Football Association congress which was staged in Makeni April 2015 was postponed over the issue of eligibility of delegates since then there has not been any congress hosted in the country which has led to the major contentious issue between FA executives and the F.A. members.
Hosting of the extraordinary congress is seen by many as a step aimed at resolving a long-standing dispute within the country’s football family.
