New dawn for African football

New dawn for African football

While congratulating Madagascar FA President Ahmad Ahmad who emerged new CAF President, Adamu whose stay away from football order was further extended by World Soccer ruling body FIFA recently, said the new president must realise that the elections and over and all pre-election divisions must be closed to move CAF forward.

Jordaan is among a sweep of new faces on the exco after Hayatou's loyalists were swept from power in dramatic blood-letting during the much anticipated elections. The vote also means Hayatou will be replaced as a FIFA Senior Vice President.

"In one of our confrontations during these exchanges we had he actually told me that 'do you know I've been a ruler of African football for 29 years?' So he was the empire".

If the drastic changes at Federation Internationale de Football Association, where a raft of senior staff have been removed since Gianni Infantino was elected last February, are any indication to go by, CAF's administration in Cairo is also set for a shake-up.

Ahmad's campaign train arrived Abuja, Nigeria early March where he met with Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung and other stakeholders in the Nigerian football space.

"We worked hard but we won".

Ahmad is 57 years old and has two children.

Windhoek-At long last, there is a new sheriff at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.

As at the time of filing this report last night, no less than six members of the Hayatou cabinet had lost their bids to return to the executive.

The Madagascar Football Federation president ran his successful campaign under the banner of change, which he believes is necessary within African soccer's governing body.

"We are going to take our time to study the situation and come out with a blueprint to take our football to the next level".

Eritrea was ineligible to cast its vote, as the tiny nation torn by civil wars has failed to enter her football teams in CAF competitions. An associate of Bin Hammam called Amadou Diallo was linked in 2011 to alleged irregular payments during the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting votes.
