According to Lieutenant Sanyang, as Fifa security coordinator and a serving member of the Armed Forces the major’s role stops at coordinating security matters in football and not its politics. “The role of the army is to protect the lives, properties and defend the territorial integrity of the country,” he stressed.
“Henceforth, I would be grateful if you contact the army PRO for anything dealing with serving of personnel of the Gambia Armed Forces as my doors are open for the media as we are partners in development,” he stated.
