OFFICIAL STATEMENT: The Gambia Football Federation wishes to inform its members and the general public that its position on the proposed investigation of its internal matters initiated by the National Sports Council remains unchanged. The GFF remains resolute on its decision not to recognize and our refusal to cooperate in any investigation conducted by the NSC or any entity set up by the Council in this matter based on their lack of legal mandate.
Earlier today, the Federation received a correspondence from the Council that it has suspended the President Lamin Kabba Bajo; First Vice President, Abdoulie Jallow; Second Vice President, Ebou Faye; Third Vice President Martin Gomez; and Co-opted Executive Member, Bakary. K. Jammeh.
