It is just a year since Mr. Souleiman Hassan Waberi became the president of Djibouti Football Federation. During the one-year period, President Waberi and his executive committee were able to realise the country's long-time dreams including the implementation of Djibouti's first ever beach soccer tournament and the creation of the National beach soccer team.

The FDF held its General assembly at the technical centre in the capital Djibouti during which at least 19 developmental agendas were approved by 72 delegates representing the FDF stakeholders from across the horn of African nation.

This was the first time to organize a general assembly since 2007, a move that was seen as part of the developmental steps taken by President Souleiman according to some stakeholders who addressed at the General assembly on Sunday.

President Souleiman Hassan Waberi who addressed the assembly thanked members of the federation steering committee, the stakeholders and all those who helped in the promotion of football in the country including the government and sponsoring companies.

"It was nearly 13 months ago when you elected me as the FDF president and during my post election address on that day, the revival of the general assembly was one of several things I pledged in front of you - we have achieved some of them and the rest are ahead of us and we are hopeful to accomplish as scheduled," President Souleiman Hassan Waberi said in his address on Sunday.

The president emphasised that some of the tangible developments his federation achieved since he came to office on 10th of November 2012 including insuring coverage for 2,000 players and referees, signing a cooperative agreement with the National TV RDT which gives live coverage to all local football competitions, the start of women's football development programs, the launch of a nationwide youth football development project and the launch of the country's first ever beach soccer tournament.

During his address President Souleiman Hassan Waberi disclosed 10 more development programs which he intends to achieve over the next three years. The general assembly unanimously approved the development programs which include the preparation of a strong national beach soccer team. According to the strategy plan the national beach soccer team is expected to represent Djibouti in international competitions from 2015.

Sunday's General assembly was witnessed by special guests, including the representative of the Secretary of State for Youth and Sports, and representatives from some sponsor companies.
