CAF election: Did Pinnick defy Dalung to vote for Ahmad?

Posted March 18, 2017

The election did not only witness Ahmad taking over African football as CAF President, but there was also a change of CAF's Executive Committee (EC) members that saw the president of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), Musa Hassan Bility, being elected as one of CAF's new EC members.

The 70-year-old Hayatou, who had served as CAF's president since 1988, lost to challenger Ahmad of Madagascar.

Ahmad amassed 34 votes, 14 more than Hayatou, who won 20 votes.

A number of Hayatou's loyalists were swept from power in Caf's executive committee in Thursday's dramatic elections.

"We are not going to play a passive role, but an active role in the development of African football".

Chiyangwa was Ahmad's campaign manager.

Ahmad becomes only the seventh Caf president in the body's 60-year history.

The Bucs are a quick team, but their guards looked rather pedestrian compared to Chiozza and Hill when they turned on the jets. Smith is tied fourth in Florida State history in games played with 135, while the program record is Okaro White with 139.

"We worked hard but we won".

The Nigeria football chief had triggered the Infantino involvement when he brought him to Nigeria alongside African FA chairmen in a move that started the eventual fall of Hayatou.

Hayatou lost to Ahmad by a 34-20 vote that was described by some media outlets as an natural disaster in the continent.

"This is great for Zanzibar and African football", Zanzibar Football Association (ZFA) President Ravia Idarous Faina said in the Ethiopian capital.

As a result of his defeat, Hayatou also loses his positions with Federation Internationale de Football Association. He says he will modernise the body and make it more transparent, although his own transparency has once been questioned.

But he can now be considered as a potential future candidate for the leadership of Caf after receiving 35 votes to win the poll of three who were chasing two southern African places in the 15-man exco.

His focus on ethics came at a time when Hayatou and CAF secretary general Hicham el Amrani have been recommended for criminal prosecution in Egypt over the confederation's new $1 billion marketing and television rights deal. Footballers could also compete on the Tanzanian national team, he said.
