Bo Rangers Football Club has sent a letter of reminder to the President of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) in respect of the 2021/2022 championship prize money.
The Premier League Champions have made multiple efforts to obtain their prize money, and they have now issued a letter to the SLFA. In the letter, they have given the SLFA a 14-day deadline to respond, while also reserving their right to explore other options if the SLFA fails to comply.
Below is the letter written by Bo Rangers to the SLFA President, Thomas Daddy Brima
“We wrote you a letter requesting you to make good your commitment to give us our Championship Money as promised during the closing courtesies of the 2021/2022 Sierra Leone Premier League season.
“We later received an acknowledgement from your General Secretary dated 10 January 2023 apologising for the delay, while at the same time assuring us that the said money would be paid “on or before the 31 January 2023”. Mr. President, it is safe to say that it is about twenty weeks since we were given that assurance, but sadly, we are still yet to receive the said money.
“In fact, it is almost a year now since you made that commitment to us but to no avail. We have exercised restraint throughout this period but we now find it inexcusable as you continue to treat us with contempt.
“This attitude, no doubt, undermines the importance of our elite league; it undermines investment and competition. It is good that we keep every promise we make and make promises that we can keep especially to people we profess to care about; implementing them is as important as keeping them.
“It is against this backdrop that we write to remind you to fulfil your promise within 14 days of receipt this letter. We would like to remind you that we are leaving all available remedies open while we look forward to a favourable response, as a promise is a debt unpaid”
