In an aim to solve the ongoing saga engulfing the Sierra Leone Football Association, FIFA has named a task force to address the issues.

According to a report the task force will be chaired by Musa Bility, who is a member of the Confederation of African Football executive committee.

The BBC website has it that the task force's immediate objective is to create a platform for fresh Sierra Leone FA elections as well as address a match-fixing inquiry.

It is also reported that the Sierra Leone FA believes that a 2010 World Cup qualifier against South Africa in 2008, which ended goalless, was fixed.

The FA elections which were initially scheduled for August are yet to take place after FIFA demanded integrity checks for all current and potential executive committee members prior to the elections.

"The objective of the first meeting is to assess the current situation and discuss next steps in view of paving the way for a timely holding of SLFA elections," FIFA said on 31 August.

"The Task Force will provide assistance to the SLFA to put in place a process for integrity checks."

Liberia's Bility will be assisted by representatives from the Sierra Leone FA, Drucil Taylor, the country's Sports Ministry and two FIFA employees, Veron Mosengo-Omba and Solomon Mudege.
