(mylbsonline.com/Liberia/Oct.2/2013)-The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given Liberia’s “repented” Football Association (LFA) President a big appointment.

Musa Bility was appointed recently as member of the Organizing Committee for the African Nations Championship with acronym, “CHAN.”

Bility’s appointment on the committee comes Less than two weeks after CAF took a decision to end the half-year ban on him.

‘CHAN’ seeks to provide adequate international competition experience for home-based footballers on the African continent, yet to get hold of contracts in Europe or other overseas places.

Mr. Bility shares membership of the CHAN 2014 Committee with a Guinean national, Almamy Kamara, one of Africa’s powerful names in the football sphere.

Mr. Kamara is the 2nd Vice President of CAF and will Chair the Organizing Committee for the CHAN in 2014. South Africa, with lots of football infrastructure, will host the local players’ Africa Cup of Nations in January, 2014.

Meanwhile, LFA President, Musa Bility, has responded to mounting calls from the public for the FA to, as well, pardon football officials serving various suspensions for coming in conflict with rules and regulations governing the game in Liberia.

The stakeholders are pleading with the local FA Boss to lead a process that would ensure that the likes of Adolphus Dolo and Adolph Laurence get off the hook.

However, Mr. Bility said: “The concerns were good, but misdirected.”

The LFA Boss said: “The suspended officials must rather lobby with clubs and their executives to begin a process of pleading with the Executive Committee to forgive them.”

“The process of pardoning Dolo, Laurence and others, being faced with various suspensions for different offenses, does not rest with me alone. No, I will not be open to doing so,” Bility categorically told mylbsonline.

On a rather hard note, the LFA President, who says his return to football’s top ranks is with a renewed vigor, has not chosen any “diplomatic” language to respond to questions about the ambition of his ally, Rep. Edwin Snowe, to contest against him for the top LFA Post.

Bility said: “If Snowe gets two of the many votes from the LFA polls next year, I will resign as President.”

“The Stakeholders will not vote Snowe and, as a matter of fact, he [Snowe] does not meet the new qualification criteria handed down by FIFA,” Chairman Bility, who did not explain further, added.
