CAF Election:FG asks Pinnick to decide


The coast is now clear for President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick to exercise his authority at the the forth coming Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) election billed for Addis Ababa Ethiopia on March 16.
Pinnick like President of other Football Associations will be entitled to vote for who becomes the next CAF president, had set tongues wagging after he publicly declared that he will back President of Madagascar Football Association Ahmad Ahmad who is challenging incumbent President Issah Hayatou.  While some tongue lashed the former Delta FA boss for speaking his mind others insisted that the era of sitting on the fence are over.
However rising from a meeting of the Football House in Abuja with the Hon Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung, decision was reached that Amaju should go and do the needful and most importantly his discretion to vote for a candidate that will help Nigeria. The 39th Ordinary General Assembly of CAF will see Hayatou who has been at the helm since 1988 lock horns with Ahmad.
Ahmad, a member of the Caf Executive Committee, is currently in his third period of office with Madagascar.
The 57-year-old believes he has what it takes to govern affairs of the game in the continent.
 Hayatou was re-elected unopposed during the last Caf presidential elections in 2013.
The Cameroonian had previously stated this term would be his last until a change of regulations altered his stance.
In 2015, Caf voted to change the statutes which previously stopped officials serving past the age of 70.
This paved the way for Hayatou, who turned 70 last year, to stand in the election.
 The elections will take place in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa otherwise called City of Flowers as the organisation celebrates its 60th year of existence.
Whoever wins the election will be limited to a maximum of three terms in office after Caf amended its rules last year.
Only members of the organisation’s 15-man executive committee can contest the presidential election.
