World governing FIFA has drafted the Ghana FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, to lead a delegation of mediators to Sierra Leone with a mandate to resolve the crisis engulfing the country's football.

The GFA boss will leave Accra on Thursday and is scheduled to meet with SLFA officials, representatives of clubs in the league, and the country's president Ernest Bai Koroma.

According to the GFA\'s official website, Nyantakyi and his team, including Primo Corvaro, an official from FIFA\'s Department of National Associations, will be hoping to "resolve the power struggle and the ongoing protracted impasse between rival factions at the FA aimed at ousting the Isha Johansen led SLFA executive".

Earlier in the year, FIFA had threatened to suspend the country from international football if an unauthorised congress held December 20, 2014 that dissolved the leadership of Johansen did not reverse its decision.

Nyantakyi had only recently led a delegation that successfully resolved the crisis in Kenyan football.
