The Gambia Football Federation President Lamin Kabba Bajo has told his 3rd Vice President, Lang Tombong Tamba that no amount of attempts will undermine his leadership at the federation as both executive committee members clashed over a delayed letter which they all agreed to send to the Sports Ministry and National Sports Council.

The GFF Executive Committee held a meeting last weekend (on Saturday) and agreed to send a letter to both the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) and National Sports Council (NSC), expressing their disappointment with a committee to coordinate the road to Cameroon.

Lang Tombong Tamba in their GFF WhatsApp Executive group demanded to know the reason for the delay to act upon their (GFF) executive committee agreement during their meeting held on Saturday.

“Good morning to you all, [a] decision was taken on our Saturday meeting that a letter should be sent to the Ministry [of Sports] and the National Sports Council to express our disappointment of a committee to coordinate the road to Cameroon. Today is Wednesday and nothing is being heard. Decisions of the executive body must be respected otherwise be told why the delay?” Tamba wrote on the GFF executive WhatsApp page.

GFF President Lamin Kaba Bajo, in a leaked audio obtained by Kerr Fatou, responded to Lang Tombong Tamba by saying that no amount of attempts will undermine his leadership at the football house, while further informing Lang that, he (Lang Tombong) is fighting a futile battle following a useless cause.

“Third Vice President, may I please remind you that it is not the responsibility of the President to write letters on decisions of the exco [executive], if at all you know that. In case you don’t, please be informed accordingly.”

“Secondly, may I inform you [that] you are fighting a futile battle and following a useless cause. No amount of attempts will undermine my leadership. Your recent conducts and direct talks on my person will again run into [the] drain. I advise you [to] join the line of unity; commitment and loyalty to the team to enable us [to] achieve our collective responsibility and objectives. Can you clearly see that you are alone in your non-existence war with me and everyone?” 

The President further said that he has seized all contacts and dealings with his third vice president, Lang Tombong Tamba either officially or personally.

At that juncture, Ebou Faye, GFF Second Vice President intervened and asked the duo to stop the argument and sort things out.

Lang Tombong Tamba is the third Vice President of the Gambia football Federation under the leadership of Lamin Kabba Bajo who is the current president of the federation.
