He also denied admitting the charges in his voluntary statement
He added: "Also, we applaud you - parents, guardians and family, as you leave your children with us so they can write the next chapter in their lives and in the story of your family. We want to assure you, we are cognizant of the trust you and your children have bestowed on us and we will continue to guard this trust as we have always done since the dawn of the UTG. We have no doubt that you and your children made the right and most prudent and pragmatic decision to choose the UTG for university education and will benefit hugely as we, as a university community, will equally benefit with their presence during and after their studies at the UTG. As your children enter our doors, we expect they will work hard but smartly; they will be introduced and exposed to academic rigor and excellence and the joy of learning and the acquisition of knowledge"
The release further stated that the "nominations for the above positions must reach the secretariat of the Gambia Football Federation on or before the 15 day of September, 2014. The NC continues to count on the cooperation and understanding of the general public" it concluded
