Bo Rangers FC Chairman, Babadi Kamara, has declared his intention to run for the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) Presidency.
Kamara, who is the owner of Southern Arena, stated that he is passionate about developing football in Sierra Leone and believes that he has the experience and resources to make a difference.
“I have been fortunate enough to have administered football at the highest level, and I have also been involved in the ownership of a sporting edifice in Bo,” Kamara said. “I believe that I can use my experience to help develop football in Sierra Leone and make the national team a force to be reckoned with.”
Kamara’s announcement has been met with mixed reactions in Sierra Leone. Some people have welcomed his candidacy, saying that he is a high-profile figure who could bring much-needed investment to the game in the country.
Others have expressed skepticism, saying that he does not have enough experience of African football.
The SLFA Presidential election is due to be held in 2025. The current President, Thomas Daddy Brima, is seeking re-election.
Kamara’s candidacy could have a significant impact on football in Sierra Leone. If he is elected, he is likely to bring in investment and expertise from around the world. He could also help to raise the profile of the national team and attract more talented players.
However, Kamara’s candidacy is also likely to face some challenges. He will need to convince voters that he is serious about his commitment to football in Sierra Leone and that he has a clear plan for how he will develop the game. He will also need to overcome any skepticism about his lack of experience of African football.
Overall, Kamara’s candidacy is a positive development for football in Sierra Leone. It has the potential to bring much-needed investment and expertise to the game. However, he will need to overcome some challenges if he is to be successful.
It will be interesting to see how Kamara’s candidacy unfolds in the coming months. Whether he is elected or not, his involvement in Sierra Leonean football is sure to have a significant impact.
