Isha Johansen drops out of Sierra Leone FA Presidency race

Sierra Leone Football Association President Isha Johansen has dropped out the race for the Presidential race of the SLFA.

Johansen made an announcement through a statement released on Tuesday, 1 June, 2021.

She says she will not seek to recontest her position so as to focus on her role at FIFA.

“As a recently elected Fifa Council Member, I will be required to play a higher level and more active role as a Global Ambassador for football and Fifa,” she noted in her statement.

“My new role will require extensive global travelling and consequently increased demands on my time. After much deliberation and soul searching, it is with sadness that I have decided to announce the withdrawal of my candidacy for for President in the up-coming Sierra Leone Football Association Elections.

“I hereby offer the new SLFA Executive and staff my best wishes for the future and assure my full support from within Fifa.”

As a result, Thomas Daddy Brima, Saddick Deen-Nyarkoh and provisional aspirant Rodney Michael will be contesting the June 4th and 5th elective congress in the Northern Province town Makeni.

The last SLFA elective congress was held almost eight years ago when incumbent Isha Johansen assumed office on August 3, 2013.
