Following the creation of a new committee Events Management Committee, (EMC), under the Gambia Football Federation, GFF, President Lamin Kabba Bajo yesterday presided over the inaugural meeting of the body and congratulated the members for accepting their appointments into the EMC.
Mr Bajo outlined the duties of the committee ‘The creation of this structure emanated from the meeting of the Emergency Executive Committee with a need to form an adhoc committee to help the Organizing Committee in the areas of match finals, international matches and other logistical support to help our events and engagements in a successful manner”.
Mr Bajo said even though the organizing committee’s composition is of a broad nature, it is however constrained with logistical arrangements hence the need to form this stand out committee.
Committee chairman Willy Abraham thanked the GFF for the trust and confidence bestowed on him and his colleagues to be appointed into what he described ‘ a family committee’. He said the committee would convene another in- house meeting to come up with a comprehensive proposal, which would be submitted to the GFF for action relative to their TOR. “We have to restructure for the betterment of our football. League finals have to be better organised and our international matches at home should also be up to standard.
Ba S Jabbi, a member of the committee expressed gratitude to the leadership of the GFF for entrusting them with such a responsibility and assured the GFF of their readiness to work in unison with all stakeholders for the successful staging and conducting of GFF match finals and international matches and any other assignment extended to them. The Vice Chairman of the Committee General Lang Tombong Tamba commended the initiative taken by the the GFF.
General Secretary Abass Bah too congratulated the members for their new assignments and assured them of the Secretariat’s full support at all times. ‘The committee’s first assignment would be the forth coming international friendly with Guinea Bissau slated for Saturday July 1st.
Other members of the Committee include Arret Njie Jah, Musa Sisay, Captain Bintou Lowe and Oumie Bittaye.
