Accra, Oct. 12, GNA – The Government of Sierra
Leone, has upheld their decision to suspend Miss. Isha Johasen, President and
Mr. Christopher Karama, General Secretary of the Sierra Leone Football
Association for acts of corruption.

This comes against the decision of the
Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), to suspend Sierra
Leone for government interference.

FIFA insists that, the return of Sierra Leone
into the Association would depend on the restoration of the two officials into
their positions.

Sierra Leone was unable to honour their 2019
African Cup Nations qualifier against the Black Stars of Ghana, after Africa’s
football governing body, Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) declared that,
Sierra Leone did not meet the conditions for the lifting of a suspension
imposed on the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

The Government of Sierra Leone upheld their
decision on suspending Sierra Leone Football Association duo despite FIFA’s
suspension of the West African country for government interference in football
activities.

According to a statement signed by the
Director of Sports for Sierra Leone, the suspension of the two top football
officials, was upheld in line with Anti-Corruption Act, as indicated by the
Anti-corruption Commission, adding that it would engage FIFA to resolve the
seeming impasse.
