FIFA presidential candidate Sheikh Salman gets Gambia vote

The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) has reaffirmed its support of Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa as its candidate to replace Sepp Blatter in Friday’s FIFA Presidential elections.

The GFF President, Lamin Kaba Bajo, is headed for Swiss today and he will be among 209 delegates made up of Presidents of the world football governing body’s member associations that will vote a new leadership for FIFA with the body clogged in a major corruption scandal.

“The position of CAF is that Sheikh Salman is our candidate after he presented his manifesto to its members because we believe that he can help in developing the game in Africa,” Lamin Kaba Bajo told the Daily Observer yesterday.

“As an executive member of WAFU [West African Football Union] we also agreed that we will vote for Sheikh Salman because he will pursue and continue Blatter’s legacy to develop football in Africa so Gambia will definitely vote for him.” Read more
