Supporters of Mustapha Kebbeh yesterday held a press conference at the Brikama Box bar Mini-Stadium to speak on the current electoral process, leading to the September 20 elections. 

They vowed to use every option including litigation should the Normalisation Committee act outside the GFF constitution to ban them from contesting the elections.

Both Mr Kebbeh and two others in his camp, Buba Bojang and Omar Danso have expressed interest to run in those elections.

The press briefing began with a clarification on the position of Bombada FC, a Brikama team which has been reported to have proposed nominations for both Mr Kebbeh and Lamin Kaba Bajo.

In his clarification, former GFF first vice president Buba ‘Star’ Janneh said Mr Kaba Bajo is not a vice president of Bombada FC as claimed in some newspapers.

Another speaker, Alhagie Darboe of Brikama United FC, also made it clear that his club does not back Mr Bajo as they support Mustapha Kebbeh.

After the clarifications, the briefing then went on to address the current political process. Buba Bojang, one of the presidential aspirants warned that if the Normalisation Committee went outside the constitution of the GFF to ban their candidates from contesting, they will have many options to pursue including litigation.  He, along with other speakers said Fifa’s correspondence on the electoral process had not cited any other aspects that exclude anyone who satisfies the present statutory requirements.

Buba Janneh also informed the audience that there have been negotiations to pick a unified executive committee for the GFF a process he said his group still remains open to at any time in this process.  The briefing also heard that those talks collapsed because the Ministry of Youth and Sports allegedly rejected the list of the lineup of which agreed Mustapha Kebbeh as head.
