Chairman of a Premier League team East End Lions and a business man Sanusi Bruski Kargbo referred to as 'Unifier' and 'Game changer' by his supporters yesterday became the first person to declare his intention to run for the Presidency of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) as the term of office of the current administration led by Isha Johansen comes to an end on August 3.

Hundreds of people including government ministers Pat Sowe and Ibrahim 'Wochinga' Mansaray and the Mayor of Freetown
attended the well organised ceremony at the Victoria Park in the central of Freetown.
Among the crowd were also Sierra Leone People's Party Presidential flagberear aspirant Alpha Timbo, some SLFA members/delegates and supporters of community football clubs in Freetown.
Speaker after speaker including Pat Sowe said the 43-year old Bruski was the right man to unify the football family and restore pride to the most cherished sport in the country.
Bruski in his speech said among other things: "My main aim will be to restore Sierra Leone back to it place in Africa and the World at large cleaning it from the drains of animosity that has put the game to a stall the past three years or so to a look alike glorious days of the 80's and early 90's."
"I will bring back the love lost to all football stakeholders, players and fans embracing all for the benefits of all Sierra Leoneans who believe in nation building through football."
"I will make sure the game play and pledge whatever I could to make it play."
"I send this message to you all, when elected SLFA next president, am not going to go for any revenge or be at loggerhead with anyone."
"Let sleeping dogs lie but will be a Unifier and a sole motive of bringing everyone onboard.

However, the declaration ceremony has been overshadowed by the decision of world's football governing body to suspend the SLFA annual congress scheduled for July 14 until issues relating intergrity checks are resolved. Fifa says it'll send a task force to Freetown.
Meanwhile it's not known whether or not the incumbent Isha Johansen will seek re-election.
