Musa Hassan Bility
...
The name Musa Hassan Bility rings a bell in the country, so the news spread like wildfire when it was announced that he was a contestant for the position of president of the Liberia Football Association (LFA). A very accomplished man indeed, Mr. Bility runs a petroleum company, media empire and heads the Mandingo Caucus. He then added to his numerous portfolios he carries by heading the LFA, one of the most challenging entities to run in the country.
Following wide media speculations about the desire of Mr. Bility to vie for the football presidency in 2010 at the LFA elections, he summoned football gurus comprising clubs, Executive Committee members, members of Sub-Committees and Sub-Associations at his luxurious residence located at the remote part of Duport Road on a Sunday afternoon.
Vain Promises
At that event, Mr. Bility made numerous promises, saying exactly what his audience wanted to hear; by vowing that clubs would participate in the national league without registering with the LFA and that they would not buy jerseys and boots.
"There is a disconnection between the LFA and those who own it. I therefore intend to connect the LFA and its owners," Bility vowed. He continued: "We will ensure easy communication.
...
Mr. Kortie added that with Mr. Bility as president, guests of the LFA like those from FIFA would not have to lodge in hotels but rather at the Bility's residence.
...
His praises for Mr. Bility continued with him stating that the LFA leadership was not for "hungry people".
...
Hence, it is not a new thing that Mr. Kortie was giving what many people considered as flatteries to Mr. Bility.
...
As the man at the center of attraction, Mr. Bility appeared to have all that it took to win the LFA presidency, considering his huge wealth and political patronage. Mr. Bility owns the media empire called the Renaissance Communications Incorporated (RCI). This conglomerate runs Real TV, Truth FM and Renaissance newspaper.
President's Ally
While serving as chairman of the National Mandingo Caucus of Liberia, Mr. Bility was instrumental in rallying massive support amongst his kinsmen for the success of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the 2005 presidential election. This has made Bility a close ally to the President of Liberia, who firstly rewarded his campaign efforts with the lucrative and influential position of chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Port Authority (NPA). He was later switched to the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) in similar capacity. Mr. Bility also served as head of Alpha Old-timers club, a team formed for those having recreation through soccer.
With the aforementioned occupations of the man said to be LFA's next president, Mr. Bility obviously had the money and influence enough to run a lucrative campaign and attract followers, but his ability to shift football upon winning appeared debatable.
...
This is to say that since Mr. Bility took over as president of the premier league side Watanga, not much was heard or seen of the team as it related to transforming the club into one of the best considering the owner's affluent status. Watanga's activities on the field were still dismal, while materially the club was at a low grade until maybe when a new president took over.
That raised the question as to whether Bility would really be in the position to supply Liberian clubs with the materials he had promised after winning the elections. Moreover, those that survived the last elections and still awaiting the pending events feared that Mr. Bility would be dumped by gravy seekers that had led other candidates to similar fate.
...
The decision by Mr. Bility to form such an unholy alliance created reservations about his sincerity of bringing the changes he aimed at. His neutrality in the football feud has also been brought into question. Some observers think Mr. Bility should have blended his team of supporters in a way that it would reflect the involvement of all the rival parties in order to convince the football public that he would be the LFA president of all groups, instead of being for those who are on his side. Failure to do so meant more problems rather than problem-solving.
Proving His Ability
At the same time, Mr. Bility had the uphill task of convincing his critics about his ability to lead the football governing body of Liberia. Despite expressing his interest for the LFA leadership post, his active involvement in the game in whatsoever manner or form was not convincing.
A few years ago, Andy Quamie (apparently for financial reasons) conferred the title of president of Watanga FC on Mr. Bility's shoulders.
...
However, it appeared that Mr. Bility only wore the crown as Mr. Quamie remains actively involved in the running of Watanga FC under the pretext of being senior vice president.
...
If Mr. Bility had realistically been playing his role as president of Watanga, there was no argument that the club would have been one of the best outfits both on and off the pitch, considering the strong financial backing of its boss. Additionally, many would have used Mr. Bility's achievements at Watanga to market him during the campaign.
But, from the look of things, one could conclude that Mr. Bility simply took over Watanga to gain not only an overnight popularity and sympathy but also as a springboard to be qualified as candidate to vie for the LFA presidency.
It can be recalled that when some Premier League clubs decided to remove their representatives from the LFA Executive Committee, though still fresh on the job at the time, Mr. Bility was the one put forward by the same clique who backed him for the 2010 elections. They did not succeed in this quest, notwithstanding.
The oil tycoon was quick to distance himself from the membership of the ruling UP, a group he supported highly during the 2005 elections. Yet, there was a school of thought that believed Mr. Bility's ambition was an extension of the ruling party's quest of dominating key aspects of the Liberian society, particularly the young people.
There was another version that had it that Mr. Bility's ambition was geared towards avenging the defeat of his pal Siaka A. Sheriff at the hands of Cllr. Wesley. Take a look at the list of those who backed Mr. Bility and you will definitely agree - the likes of Adolph Lawrence, Andy Quamie, Moustapha Raji, Rodney Wilson, and Henry Yonton were all spearheading the Bility crusade.
...
These are people Mr. Bility should have feared seriously.
Another group comprises people who always sounded trumpets for people seeking power just for money-making purpose.
It is no secret that Mr. Bility has enough money - one good reason why more and more persons were boarding his bandwagon.
...
What happens if Mr. Bility is not in the position to get money to run Watanga?
...
Musa Bility got there and the problems persist. The clubs and stakeholders now believe that he is not able to buy buses, boots, and jerseys and as well settle salaries and per diems for every player or team on any day as promised.
Mr. Bility promised these things because he was not up there yet. The clubs were fooled in that Bility had a whole lot of responsibilities to cater for, not only football. They have forgotten that Mr. Bility is a businessman; he would not put his money where profits weren't going to come from at the end of the day.
They failed to realize that Mr. Bility would not sacrifice all of his successful entities in the name of putting the football of Liberia at the same level with the outside world. This was a sad mistake the clubs were making if these were the reasons behind their big support for Mr. Bility.
They have been reminded to go back to the drawing board and point out why they did not need a new LFA leadership. They should not have voted an individual on the basis that he had enough money to throw about but rather vote in a better LFA in 2010.
