Newly elected officials of the Liberia Football Association are expected to be inducted into office while the controversy surrounding the presidential election is being settled in court, the New Democrat understands.
On Saturday, April 14, a lower court ordered the FA president elections halted after Executive Committee members and vice president for administration and Vice president for operation were announced winners.
On Monday, about 10 elected officials signed a letter to D. Sheba Brown requesting a meeting with the FA transitional team, which outgoing president Musa Hassan Bility appointed.
“The purpose of said meeting is to have you and other members of the Transitional Team inform of the elected officials that will be working and taking over from you,” the letter under the signature of vice president for operation-elect Wilmot Smith said.
“We are with the hope that this communication will serve as sufficient notice for the smooth running and turnover of authority. This exercise is urgent to avoid a leadership vacuum at the LFA.”
