Lone Star Cell & Robert Sirleaf Support Debbah?

By Roland M. Mulbah

Credible reports gathered by this paper say Liberiaís leading phone company Lone Star Cell MTN and the son of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Robert Sirleaf, have thrown their weight behind the nationís most celebrated soccer star James Salinsa Debbah in the pending Liberia Football Association (LFA) elections for the presidency slated for March, 2014 in Harper, Maryland County.

According to a well placed source, Lone Star Cell MTN wants to topple current sponsor of all football activities in Liberia, Cellcom GSM. The company is said to have pumped in more than one million United States Dollars to sponsor the national team of Liberia Lone Star as well as the LFA national league.

As for Robert Sirleaf, our source hinted that the Presidentís son has seen the football icon as the right candidate to revamp Liberian football from the hands of business tycoon Musa Bility who revealed he came to the fore of Liberian football to commercialize the beautiful game.

If Ellenís son supports Debbah, the President will be in a complete dilemma as to who to support in the LFA election.

Bility played an integral part to bring Madam Johnson-Sirleaf to for fore as President of the Republic of Liberia in 2005 when she won her first term and he (Bility) continued in 2011 when the President was reelected.

Though Debbah did not support President Johnson-Sirleaf in 2005 for the first round in favor of his kinsman Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, the countryís highest scorer joined the campaign in 2011 bringing on board several of his national team teammates to support President Johnson-Sirleaf.

Debbah and Robert Sirleaf are already working together with reports that the former goal customer has been hired to help train Barracks Young Controller (BYC II) for the upcoming Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Cup.

There are reports also that Debbah is in talks with African football legend and Peace Ambassador George Weah for the former World Footballer of the Year to throw his support behind him for the LFA presidency.

All efforts to contact Lone Star Cell MTN and the son of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Robert Sirleaf failed up to press time.
