Mere days after the general conference voted 24-7 to place a further ban on disgraced president of the Dominica Football Association (DFA) Patrick John, its general secretary Clifford “Bala” Celaire, John’s handpicked right hand man, has been dismissed.
Celaire received his walking papers from president of the DFA Glen Etienne on Wednesday (July 4, 2012).
After taking up the post as president, John as mandated by the DFA constitution was empowered to select his own “general secretary”.
He opted for Celaire, a close friend who has worked with him over the years.
It has been widely suggested that Celaire was “less than loyal” to the present sitting president, and was alleged to have been engaging in moves aimed at “frustrating” the Glen Etienne led executive.
DNO is following up the story and will give updates as they become available.
