Pinnick Discards Hayatou’s CAF Presidential Re-Election

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has called for a change of power ahead of this year’s Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Presidential election.

Cameroonian’s Issa Hayatou is the current CAF President and has been on the seat since 1988. However, he faces a tough challenge from, Ahmad Ahmad, who is the head of Madagascar’s FA.

NFF president Amaju Pinnick told the BBC the election will be “a defining moment for African football”.

He said Ahmad was “courageous” in coming forward to challenge Mr. Hayatou.

Pinnick said CAF needs a “new generation” of leadership, following the change at the top of the world governing body FIFA.
