With the feguifoot elective congress less than two weeks away, there are a lot of rumors going around. The Guinean Minister of Sport cautioned the Normalization Committee from sliding the timeline, even if the suggestion to postpone the vote has surfaced in recent weeks.

Was the trip to Syli Headquarters the tipping point?

Will there be any improvement in Guinean soccer after almost two years of transitional management? That’s what watchers of soccer in Guinea are wondering. It is believed that the normalization committee of the Guinean Football Federation has slipped the election schedule with just a few days remaining before the end of its term. The Guinean Minister of Sport and the organization are at odds as well. The latter was very unimpressed with Conor’s visit to the national team’s accommodation during the 2023 AFCON.

“We were shocked to find that CONOR, without even mentioning my department, conducted the tour to the hotel reserved for the Guinean national team for the upcoming Can in Côte d’Ivoire,” Béa Diallo wrote in a letter to the Normalization Committee President.He went one step farther and blamed the sponsorship agreement between CONOR and Orange, the phone company.”I am not aware of any openness indicating that we have a sponsor, and they do not disclose the percentage of money they provide to the national team. And what annoys me is this lack of openness. All well and good with sponsorship, but please keep us updated. We are the ones who pay 100% in the end,” the Minister regrets.

In response to ongoing speculation of a change, Lansana Béa Diallo forewarned FIFA in a letter not to allow CONOR to change the election schedule. From the information we have, it seems that there has been a modest change after the events of November 4. Nevertheless, everything are again back to normal. But now that the security measures are in place, it should be easy to arrange the remaining elections, as Béa Diallo reassures.

In spite of these circumstances and despite lingering rumors, four candidacies were filed. “We have no specific information on these lists, despite the demands made to CONOR in this respect,” laments the Minister of Sport, criticizing CONOR’s lack of response.

CONOR answers

The ceasefire didn’t last long.The Normalization Committee President chastised the Minister of Sport for his attitude in a letter.

“It seems that you take offense that you were not engaged in selecting Côte d’Ivoire as the host city for the next AFCON. It is crucial to understand that the Ministry of Sport is not accountable for approving the facilities that will host the national team competing in an AFCON. This function is now within the purview of the coach and the federation,” the letter states.It continues.”We publicly refute the claim that CONOR has objected to the national team’s accommodation, which is given by CAF at no cost.

Mariama Diallo Sy said, “On the contrary, CONOR only voiced concerns over the safety and comfort of the Syli National.

The head of the standardizing committee issued a strong warning against meddling to emphasize his argument. Mariama Diallo Sy said, “This attitude has astonished us even more, considering that not too long ago you congratulated us for the excellence of our partnership with your department.” This approach amounts to an effort to meddle in the administration of feguifoot.

The committee for elections pauses.

The election commission president broke his quiet to comfort the different parties involved as the situation became more heated and the charges became more frequent. “We want to reassure everyone involved in soccer and the globe at large that no one or any authority has influenced the electoral commission. We operate with complete legality and validity. You may be certain that the electoral commission has made all of its determinations. Abdoul Karim Diaby said, “And nothing will prevent us from honoring the election schedule.”

The situation between the Ministry of Sport and the feguifoot CONOR is more tense than ever with less than two weeks before the elected congress that will conclude the normalization committee’s term of duty. The result of this tug-of-war between the two institutions is still up in the air.
