Orange/LFA Second Division League club Cece United Football Academy has noted that valuable contributions made by FA President Mustapha Raji towards football growth and development in Liberia are unprecedented, thereby endorsing his second term bid for the LFA’s top position.
The vice president for administration at Cece United Mohammed M. Bamba said the club’s support for Mr. Raji’s second term is driven by his progressive leadership demonstrated in his first tenure.
Speaking recently during the formal endorsement ceremony at Royal Grand Hotel in Sinkor, Monrovia Mr. Bamba noted that since his ascendency to the highest position of the Liberia Football Association, Mr. Raji has made visible impacts.
He detailed that the stewardship and achievements of the FA president Raji cut across various domains of the footballing sector, ranging from grassroots soccer, women’s football, infrastructure, and academic, among others, something, he said they at Cece United see as a golden opportunity that should be improved upon rather changing.
He added that Mr. Raji and his administration initiated necessary structural changes at the LFA to effectively and efficiently run the daily operations of the institution, where transparency, accountability, and integrity has become hallmark of the nation’s football house.
He continued that this is greatly backed by the lifting of financial sanctions, clearance of financial malpractice after several audits conducted by FIFA auditors, and the numerous gestures and support from government, Member Associations and partners.
He noted that Mr. Raji is such a progressive leader and that they would be unjust to him if they do not give him another chance to roll out the next phase of development in the country under his leadership.
He promised that Cece United will continue to partner with the FA boss as he strives to rebrand Liberian football and one of those ways of demonstrating their support is be re-electing him to bring the country on par with nations on the Continent and elsewhere. Editing by Jonathan Browne
