President Ernest Bai Koroma has described football as the sport with so much “sonkoh-sonkoh” ( meaning a sports with lots of confusion).

The President made this statement last weekend when opening the tow days 500 Million Leones Sports Conference at the Atlantic Hall, last weekend.

“The influence of sports in our human lives and national development can no longer be ignored, ” the President said.

He said that the benefits of sports cut across every other thing including health, the economy and entertainment.

The President stated that everywhere in the world sport is a thriving industry but questioned the reason it is different in Sierra Leone.

“A small country like ours can be easily transformed. With the development of sport we can do more than the mining industry and many other sectors,” the President maintained.

However sports analysts have said that 500 Million Leones sport conference which according to them was a talk shop is not the solution to the problems of sports in the country.

They said that the government should hands off the internal politics of some of the association rather they should be referees because according to them it was because of the interference into the politics of football, that they now have “sonkoh-sonkoh” in the game.
