The Minister of Sport, Ibrahim Nyelenkeh has sent a serious warning to the executive of the Sierra Leone Football Association ahead of the 2021 SLFA’s Elective Congress 2021.  

Minister Nyelenkeh said that “as moral guarantor to the road map leading to the FA elections, I will not allow any electoral process that has the tendency to undermine this government that has poured so much in sports, especially football, more than any other government in the history of this country.”

He said the SLFA’s Executive’s mandate had been long overdue and the executive is unnecessarily prolonging their time in office.

He continued that the Ethics committee of the FA has disqualified some candidates for the upcoming election which gives the advantage to certain candidates.

Minister Nyelenkeh said this during the commissioning of the FIFA Artificial Turf in Kenema.
