A seeming breakthrough in GFF saga

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Reliable sources have told The Point that the Ministry of Youth and Sports was negotiation with the Fifa not to ban The Gambia.

Fifa last week threatened to ban The Gambia in all international competitions if government continues to interfere in football. This threat came days after the National Sports Council (NSC) instituted an investigation team to look into the financial fraud of the GFF – a situation that leads to animosity between the two institutions.

People familiar with the matter said Fifa still maintains their stance by urging the NSC not to go ahead with their investigation.

 Meanwhile, impeachable sources also said yesterday that Office of the President has directed the National Sports Council to rescind their decision of suspending the GFF officials.
