The Bo District Football Association (BDFA) is very angry with the Premier Board decision in awarding three points to Golden dragons, ignoring their own letter. In a letter written to the Premier League Board (PLB) Chairman they stated that they will no longer carry out their role as local organizers of the on-going league on behalf of the PLB in Bo.
According to the letter they have decided to take such an action on the grounds that they vehemently disagree with the PLB decision to award 3 points and 3 goals to Golden Dragons for the simple reason that BDFA failed to provide adequate security.
Further that they have not been able to discern any nexus between who is reprimanded (in this case B.D.F.A) and who eventually received the punishment (that is Bo Rangers).
The Premier League Board are accused of trivializing and completely ignoring the BDFA complaint against the visiting team for bringing to the field knives, blades and orgies of blood, and the BDFA views the PLB decision as preposterous.
Moreover in spite of the willingness of BDFA to participate in all the discussions and arrangements that preceded the commencement of the league the Bo FA says they were never accorded that opportunity.
In this regard they argued BDFA cannot be held accountable for merely maintaining the modus operandi as dictated. The letter also stated that the Premier League Board has deliberately refused to visit Bo despite numerous voluntary promises from their side and countless number of invitations.
The BDFA had hoped that such a visit would have given them the opportunity to assess the problem first hand.
The letter went further to state that “a body like the Premier League Board comprising a motley of individuals from diverse occupational and professional background should exhibit synergy and not inertia and incompetence as was the case with the appointment of a suspended member of the secretariat as match commissioner.
That act is tantamount to undermining the strength and efficacy of decisions by the executive committee of the association. BDFA are of the view that the PLB is a dabbler in football administration and is not quite up to the challenge of running the League devoid of partiality.”
The letter also stated that it is disheartening to learn that no member of the PLB has shown the remotest modicum of interest in the crowd disturbance during Bo Rangers/Golden Dragons encounter by at least making a call to elicit BDFA version of events on that day.
“The Premier League Board is oblivious of the fact that right from the outset all matches involving their teams have carried live radio commentary which were paid for by BDFA it was when it became popular that he got Mercury International to take over the responsibility.”
The letter stated that BDFA intention is to get the league to have all the paraphernalia of a premier league both in content and style.
