Gambia to host WAFU General Assembly

Banjul has been penciled down as the venue for the next elective General Assembly of the West African Football Union (WAFU), Observer Sports can reveal.

The one-day gathering, which will gather FA presidents from all the 16-member countries and other continental football dignitaries including the Chief Executive Officer of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Danny Jordan, is scheduled for April 9, 2011 at the Kairaba Beach Hotel.
This development, according the president of the Gambia Football Association Mr Seedy Kinteh, was made on the sidelines of the 33rd General Assembly of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) held last month in Khartoum, Sudan.
The Banjul assembly will discuss among other issues, the union’s activities and financial report, and most importantly decide on the regional body’s presidency which is temporarily held by Benin FA president, Anjorin Moucharafou, since the suspension for "corruption charges” of the Nigerian Amos Adamu by world football’s governing body FIFA. Founded in 1975, WAFU is an association of the football playing nations in West Africa.
The sixteen affiliated countries are Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Liberia, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo and The Gambia. Source - Daily Observer
