CAF President warns executives who want to enrich themselves

The President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Dr Ahmad Ahmad says any executive of the continental football federation with the intent of riding on the back of CAF to enrich him or herself should have a rethink or resign.

Ahmad Ahmad arrived in Ghana last Thursday for a four day working visit, and met with members of the GFA Executive Committee as well as the vice-President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to deliberate on issues about the development of African football, AFCON and other important issues.

He was also the guest of honour at the maiden edition of the Sly Tetteh Memorial Lectures held last Friday, and attended the grand finale of the WAFU Cup in Cape Coast last Sunday.

Speaking to pressmen on his arrival, Ahmad Ahmad said CAF was focused on improving African football and not interested in serving the selfish interest of members of the CAF Executive Committee.

“We ask the stakeholders of football to give us what they need.”

“As the leader we have to respect what the people need and what the stakeholders need for the development of football in Africa. CAF is not interested in what I need or what the Executive Committee needs,” he said.

He added, “We have to respect this decision, my job is clear, to respect this decision that is my job and my Executive Committee. Don’t go away from this decision.”
