New NSA boss Dr Abdulai aim to transform sports in Sierra Leone

Dr Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai Esq, the CEO of Luawa FC, expressed his delight at the prospect of revamping the National Sports Authority (NSA) as he looks forward to his new challenge.

After confirming his appointment as the new Executive Director of the National Sports Authority (NSA), succeeding Dr. Kenneth Brima, who served for over five years, Saffa has stated that he is excited about this opportunity. 

He aims to focus on the entire project of the NSA, making it more effective and ensuring that sports benefit young people.

The former Premier League Board Chairman plans to create job opportunities for the youth and put Sierra Leone back on the map in terms of winning Internationally. These were his first words to FootballSierraLeone.Net.

In 2019, supported by the government of Sierra Leone, H.E Julius Maada Bio invested Le 2 billion to jumpstart football development in the country.

The move was highly celebrated as it aimed to revive football, which had been absent for over five years. 

Football is not just a sport in Sierra Leone – but also a source of entertainment and inspiration for people of all ages. The large turnouts in football matches under Saffa’s leadership created a significant financial boost across the country, bringing joy to families.

Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai is a versatile individual who is a lawyer, a media CEO, a civil rights activist, and a club owner. 

He is highly respected for his role in reviving Sierra Leone football in 2019, as the country’s top-flight football league had been inactive for over six years. He also served as the chairman of the Premier League club Old Edwardians in a capacity of over ten years.
