The long awaited SLFA congress ended last Saturday with no major incidence as the 49 delegates voted for their choice of who to lead the Football Association for the next four years.
Re-elected President Nahim scored a total of 29 votes with the highest vote coming from the Western Area which is 15 votes out of the 20 votes in the Western Area. He was also able to secure 9 votes in the Northern Region out of the 11 votes cast and 3 votes in the Eastern region out of the 8 votes cast and 2 votes from the Southern Region out of the 10 votes cast to secure a total of 29 votes.
On the other hand twice defeated candidate Dr Foday Bangura secured 20 votes with his highest vote coming from the Southern Region which is 8 votes out of the 10 vote cast and 5 votes from the Eastern Region out of the 8 vote cast and 2 votes from the Northern region out of the 11 votes cast. In the Western area, Dr Bangura failed to secure the winning votes as only 5 clubs voted for him. The clubs are East End Lions, Ports Authority, Golf Lepoards, Eastern Rangers and FC Kallon.
The other clubs like Freetown United, Wellington People, and Real Republicans and 12 others voted for his opponent.
This is almost a repeat of what happened four years ago, when before going to the congress on the very Saturday there were 28 delegates that accompanied Dr Bangura to the hall, but he lost the first rounds by 9 votes and he refused to go for the second rounds.
