A close buddy to the former Gambian President Yahya Jammeh is still yet to handover to the new executive of The Gambia Wrestling Association.
The Matarr Jarju-led executive was dissolved by the National Sports Council before a new executive was elected in February to steer the affairs of the traditional sport.
The former executive is supposed to handover to the Serign Modou Faye-led executive today, Sunday, September 10 2017.
According to the current secretary general of GWA, Kawsu Jammeh, the former Secretary General Habibou Nyassi has asked to be excuse until Saturday September 16, 2017 for a handing over.
This, he said, is because the former president Matarr Jarju and former PRO Matarr Saine are out of town.
Matarr Jarju used to run most of Jammeh’s errands during his rule. SG Jammeh said they would honor the request, but warned that action would be taken against them if they fail to handover next Saturday.
When contacted by The Fatu Network, this is what Habibou Nyassi said: “Any inconvenience cause to any wrestling stakeholder is regrettable. But God willing, we will hand over next Saturday. I can’t tell where Matarr Jarju is because he only told me he is out of town.”
