( 26, 2015)-The World Football Governing Body FIFA will hold election for a new president on 26th February 2016.

One man who’s dreaming of taking over the FIFA Presidency is Liberia Football Association President, Musa Bility. Mr. Bility, couple of months ago, told the World that he will contest to take over FIFA from the outgoing under-investigation, Joseph Sepp Blatter.

But report coming in says the Liberia Football Association Chief may not be a candidate during the up-coming poll as time is running out for him to submit his documents.

The reports say Mr. Bility is also finding it difficult to get nominations from the five FIFA member countries.

Every candidate for the FIFA Presidency is required to be nominated by five FIFA member countries to the Association’s Elections Committee before he or she can be accepted to participate in the election.The nomination process and the submission of application end Sunday, October 25.

With only two days to go, it is also reported that the LFA Boss is yet to be nominated to the FIFA Elections Committee., ELBC Sports understands that some CAF executives, opposed to Bility’s dream of becoming FIFA Chief, have been seriously discouraging other CAF member countries not to land Mr. Bility the support he needs.

But the Liberia Football Association Chief is said to be seriously holding discussions with several other African states. So far, only Liberia and South Sudan FAs are said to be ready to nominate Mr. Bility to contest the FIFA highest post, needing three additional member countries to be qualified to participate.

Sierra Leone FA, earlier wanting to nominate the LFA Boss, is now reluctant to do so. The suspended Michel Platini and the Jordanian Prince are two aspirants who have gotten the five nominations and have subsequently submitted their applications to the Elections Committee.

The Liberia Football Association Chief has remained tight-lip on the issue
