The project acquired by the then GFF leadership, will be Kaba Bajo-led
administration’s first structural implementation assignment since
taking over office.

our first project and a challenge and we will make sure we do it
properly and we are not found wanting.’
While expressing optimism, Kabba continued: ‘we don’t want it to be
just a white wash (painting) but something of a standard structure.’
‘I think they (the company) are brave to take up this considering the
noise in the football’, he joked.
