Contrary to rumour doing the rounds that the elective congress which should pave the way for a new executive has been postponed, the campaign chairman of the Dream team Idrissa Tarawallie has in a telephone interview disclosed that the SLFA congress slated for 27 and 28 June still stands.
“Nothing can change that and up till this time – I am talking to you they have not informed us about any postponement officially.” Idrissa further stated that they are not going to accept any other date as the mandate of this current executive mandate had expired since last month, “so we cannot give them more days to still be in office” he said angrily.
He noted that the date of the congress was selected by the SLFA executive after their meeting, “how can they now come back to ask for postponement a few days to the congress? As a team we have worked towards that date and nothing can change that particular date” he maintained.
He stressed that they have no reasons to ask for postponement of the congress “even if their documents are not in order they should have done that since when their mandate expired last month.” When asked if the alleged postponement was because of the Leone Stars preparation for the 2010 world cup in South Africa and the Africa Nation Cup in Angola Idrissa replied that they too have Leone Stars in mind and the outgoing executive should have taken all this into consideration before declaring a date for such an important congress.
Questioned what they would do if the current SLFA executive fails to furnish them with a compressive financial report, Idrissa replied that it will make the congress very simple for them by just going in and passing a vote of non-confidence against the current SLFA executive headed by Nahim Kadi because they have not presented a proper financial report
Also a usually reliable source close to the secretariat has also confirmed to this press that no postponement has being made known to them since yesterday.
