Ministry of Sports (MOS)/ National Sports Council (NSC) on June 30th engaged the executive of the National Cycling Association (NCA) of Sierra Leone and other stakeholders in a bid to resolve the association prolong elective congress wrangling.
According to a dispatch addressed to the NCA Secretary General, the Acting Director of sports, Shamsu Mustapha stated that “the MOS/NSC is inviting the Association’s Executive Members, stakeholders and representatives to an urgent meeting.”
“The meeting is to discuss the way forward to a successful elective congress for the National Cycling Association,” the acting director letter reads.
The said congress, which has been postponed several times since 2015 due to internal wrangling within the current executive and that has derailed not only the smooth running of the Association’s activities but has also created a divide within executive members and athletes.
The first postponement came as far back in January 2015 when the NCA President Winston Crowther wrote a letter asking for advice concerning the congress and in a reply Victor Spaine who on behalf of the then Director of Sports Saidu Mansaray replied to the association stated that they must comply with the National Health Emergency Proclamation which deter public gathering.
