FA Supreme Council yet to accept Shahriman’s resignation

New Sabah Times

 KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah FA is set to hold a Supreme Council meeting, expected to be next week, to decide on whether to accept or not to accept the resignation of its Treasurer Hj Shahriman Abdullah. A reliable source told the New Sabah Times Sports that the meeting could happen as early as Thursday (May 3).

 On Wednesday, Shahriman, who is also the team manager for the State Super League side, dropped a bombshell by tendering his resignation via a fax attention to the FA’s Secretary General Alijus Hj Sipil. He also sent (cc) a copy to the FA’s Supremo, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman.

 This was confirmed by the FA’s Deputy President Datuk Lawrence Gimbang. However, when pressed, Gimbang was tight-lipped to comment further. “I cannot comment on the matter at this moment. We will have a meeting to discuss the matter with the Supreme Council members.

 “Once the matter has been deliberated we will notify the press,” said Gimbang. It is understood that, Shahriman, did not have any reason for his shock move. He merely stated in his letter that he was resigning from the post of treasurer.
“Please be informed that with regret, I have tendered my resignation as Treasurer of the Sabah FA and therefore, I will relinquish all other chairmanship and other committee posts I’m in. Thank you” the letter reads. Attempts to contact Shahriman proved futile despite the fact that his phone was ringing.

Shahriman, who is believed to be on a business trip to the national capital, was too busy to answer his phone. The latest twist developing within the FA could unravel what is believed to be internal bickering within the association, which is believed to have been going on for quite sometime.

 His resignation without any reason suggests that Shahriman is not too happy with what is going on within the FA. Rumours had it that Shahriman was quitting to avoid any further damage to the situation. Alijus also could not be reached for comment, but it is understood that he is on official duty overseas in Korea.

 But Executive Secretary Hasbullah Yahya when contacted merely said: “We do not know his reasons but we can confirm receiving his resignation letter. That is all I can say. “If you want to know more you have to call Datuk Lawrence or Datuk Osman Jamal (Sabah FA vice president I).

I have no authority to speak to the press on this matter.” Since Shahriman, who has been seen as the association’s money man, has held the treasurer post, the late payment of salaries to its players, seems to be a thing of the past
