Team Kaba: ‘We are more suitable to push for Caf pardon’

The continental  body which accused The Gambia of deliberately falsifying a player’s age, an accusation denied by the ousted GFF executive, had said the only way open to the country is to accept guilt and ask for a pardon or go to the Court of Arbitration for Sports. 

Speaking on the popular sports show, Lamin Kaba Bajo said he was convinced that his team which has not in any way, remotely or closely, been compromised in the whole saga, is better placed to negotiate a way out of the crisis than any other group.

“In fact that is the key motivation for our team to come into this fray; to bring back sanity and credibility among both local and international stake holders,” Bajo said.

His second vice presidential candidate running mate Ebou Faye went further to reveal that if elected, the Kaba-led executive will apologise to Caf and asked for a pardon. “That is the only sensible way out of this and that will be our priority,” he said.

Asked what he will do with the Fifa Assistance Programme (FAB) funds, Mr Bajo was responded that his team will prioritise capacity building across all categories of the game while Ebou Faye added that they will follow the clear directives of Fifa on how the FAB funds should be spent.

Bajo further stated that his regime will have zero tolerance for financial misappropriation because trust is vital in the relationship between the federation and government as well as with the international federations. 

Meanwhile Team Kaba will leave for the regions today and plan to hold meetings with stakeholders in all the regional capitals to sell their programme.
