The entire executive members of the Brikama Sports Committee BSC on Saturday quit their positions voluntarily, a day before team representatives planned to institute impeachment proceedings against them.
An interim committee led by Assan Darboe has been selected to oversea the affairs of sports in the community for a period of one year, or until fresh elections are held.
Prior to Saturday’s event the out going committee had been accused of presiding over the dullest moment in the history of the town’s sport, with morale shrinking, enthusiasm and momentum dying. Their resignation came less than a week after the Brikama United coach Sulayman Kuyateh announced he will leave the club at the end of the season.
The committee was controversially elected into office following allegations of misconduct and financial mismanagement by the former Brikama Youths and Sports association BYSA led by Basirou Barjoe in June 2015.
However the new committee appeared to be learning on the job and the failure to register Brikama United for the Caf Confederations Cup among other things did not help trust between them and the stakeholders.
The Interim committee’s Public Relations Officer Lamin Fatty said they will carry out reforms such as the restructuring the administration and of course they will try to bring back confidence in Brikama sports.
The compositions of the interim committee who are all nominated from the team representatives is as follows: Assan Darboe as President, Victor Sambou as Vice President, Secretary General Jerreh Manneh, PRO Lamin Fatty.
The Standard tried unsuccessfully to get comments from the out going committee who will still be contacted for comments.
