Presidential aspirant for the upcoming Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) elective congress, Sanusi Bruski Kargbo has said that they will only offer the current SLFA administration a-two-weeks grace period to conduct an elective congress when their term expires on August 3rd 2017.
“We are getting rumors from the other camp of their proposed bid to FIFA in postponing the elections till December. We are giving them a clear message now that they only have a limited time at the Secretariat until 3rd August when their term expires.
“We are making it clear, we are going to give them only two weeks which they must use in conducting elections, failure in doing so, the law will duly take its course,” Kargbo strongly stated.
The East End Lions F.C chairman said the country’s football needs to be sustained and in achieving such there is a need for someone who is financially equipped and capable of accounting for every money allocated for the use of football alone.
He said Sierra Leoneans need someone who has respect for the Football Association membership and someone who doesn't intimidate or falsely suspends referees; a quality he claims to possess. He also pledged his willingness to spend his own time and investment to see the country’s football return to its glory days.
“I will send this message to you all, when elected as the next SLFA president, I will not be going for any revenge or be sparring with anyone, I will be the unifier for our beautiful game. My main aim will be to restore Sierra Leone back to its place in Africa and the World at large,” the SLFA Presidential hopeful affirmed
Kargbo also in his declaration stated that he will ensure the game be played all around the country from all divisions including a female league.
