Lamin Kaba Bajo becomes favorite to be next GFF president

The Gambia’s surprise suspension from all CAF competitions saw the immediate sacking of Mustapha Kebbeh and his executive by the Ministry of Youths and Sports.

A new Gambia Football Federation (GFF) president will be elected on the 20th September, 2014. Lamin Kaba Bajo, former diplomat and for several years a die-hard supporter of Gambian football, is the favorite to win.

He holds a Master’s Degree in Diplomatic Studies from the University of Leicester, UK. Kaba is one of the founding members of the famous Brikama nawettan team, New Town Youths. According to the Standard Newspaper, he loves the game.

Kaba is the current president of KGI Football Club which is competing in the second division league.

Read below some of Lamin Kaba Bajo’s plans when elected as the new president of GFF:

Football calendar

To establish a synchronised football calendar that would permanently determine the beginning and closing of the football season. A well-structured calendar would enable the GFF, clubs and nawetaan centres to fit their programs and activities within the calendar. At the moment, the lack of a calendar hampers the administrative, technical and all aspects of football organisation.

Training of technicians

To train a good number of technicians from 2015 – 2020 i.e. coaches, referees, administrators and medical personnel to enable us meet the challenges ahead. Technicians definitely require high level training both in the country and abroad. Enhancing the capacity of the technicians will be a priority for the GFF as a key factor in grass root development of football.

Grass roots football

We will encourage, advocate for and implement more grass roots football which will improve competition, a better and expanded player pool for selection that will definitely increase and create better results.

Women's football

We will promote, support and assist the development of women's football with key focus on overcoming the social and cultural impediments that hinder the development of Women's football and participation and also ensure women occupy administrative and technical positions of all aspects of football.

Players association

We will ensure and assist in the establishment of the players association as enshrined in the Gambia Football Federation Constitution.


To ensure all programmes of the GFF are sponsored by making our football attractive and marketable.


We will endeavour to develop a standard field in each of the regions at once for a level playing field and equality.
