The Association says the signing of the agreement is a fulfillment of both parties’ recent pledge to restore peace in the country.
Speaking to Gurtong on Wednesday, the newly elected TLFA Secretary Isaac Oduho said his association strongly welcomes the latest efforts by the two parties for practically showing their obligations as leaders of the country through signing of the agreement despite their political differences.
Oduho, who spoke on behalf of his Association, urged both leaderships to continue committing themselves to the peace deal they inked in Ethiopia last Thursday.
“We in our Association are behind the struggle to ensure peace and stability in the country,” Oduho said.
“We hope all will be together and shake their hands, start repenting, reconciling, forgiving, and work for unity of the people of South Sudan.”
He said the leaders of the fighting once worked together but have suddenly divided over ideologies which he decried for the loss of thousands of innocent citizens.
He said sports (football) are a unifying factor in any country in the world as he said they are not inclined to any political group.
He called on the leaders to remember, put God first and start working together for peace, Unity and Development of this young nation.
