Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi faces a tough task in supervising Saturday’s Sierra Leone FA elections after clubs decided to boycott the top-flight league over the decision to ban three candidates from contesting.
The decision to boycott the league and election was taken by 10 out of 14 clubs, irked by the removal of three candidates from the running of the presidency.
This leave only Isha Johansen as the sole candidate who will be elected unopposed as she is set to become the first female Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) head.
Nyantakyi was appointed by CAF on Monday to preside over the election but his task has been made difficult by the boycott following the to exclusion of the trio.
The Ghana FA’s boss diplomatic skill must be on display if sanity is to be brought to the administration of the game in Sierra Leone.
This was after FIFA appointed normalization committee ruled out Former Sierra Leone Premier League chairman Rodney Michael, former Leone Star Mohamed Kallon, and Foday Turay from contesting.
Reports indicate that football fans, clubs and other stakeholders have took to the streets over the last few days as they hope that the decision will be overturned.
The world governing body decided to set up the committee after crisis deepened at the organization and at some point saw the FA dissolved and reinstated later.
It remains to be seen how the saga unfolds especially with one fixture already not honoured this week.
