South Sudan FA crisis: I remain the President – Alei

Chabur Goc Alei Chairman South Sudan Football Association (SSFA)…I am still the President

*Process of my alleged suspension faulty

Chabur Goc Alei, who was reportedly suspended as president of the South Sudan Football Association (SSFA), says he will not give up the presidency despite being banned by the FA’s board last week. “There is nothing like answering to an assembly. What they did remains illegal. I am still the president of SSFA and I am returning to the country on Sunday to run football,” Alei told BBC Sport.

The South Sudan FA’s board of directors had said Alei should step aside because of alleged financial impropriety.
During an emergency extraordinary meeting, the board discussed the allegations before announcing that vice-president, Andrea Abdella, should take over as interim president until the next FA elections in March 2017.

Alei claims the process was not fair and therefore cannot stand. “There is nobody who can take over my seat when the process is illegal,” said Alei who was voted into the office in 2012.

“I will not hand over office and the property unless Fifa tells me to do so,” added Alei who said he has been in contact with the Fifa Secretary General Fatma Samoura and expects communication from the sport’s world body this new week.

South Sudan FA Deputy Secretary General Domasio Ajongo also said they also expect to hear from Fifa in the coming days.
