Sierra Leone: Acting SLFA Prexy Blasts Nahim Khadi

Acting president of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), Joseph Samba Keifella, has blasted former president Nahim Khadi's decision to tender his resignation a week before the holding but eventual postponement of the SLFA elective congress.

According to Keifella, Khadi's decision [to resign] was to derail the election process and create chaos in the running of football in the country. "I was so disappointed with Nahim to tender his resignation just a week before the election. His plan was to derail the election process after abandoning the running of the FA for years," the acting FA chief expressed his displeasure.

However, Khadi stated in his resignation letter that his decision to quit was due to health conditions.

"While serving as president [of the SLFA] for the past years, it was a magnificent opportunity and experience for me. But due to my health conditions, and the need to concentrate on my business ventures, I have made up my mind to step aside as President of the FA; and allow the electoral process to usher in a new executive," a paragraph in Khadi's resignation letter stated.
