JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – CONFEDERATION of African Football (CAF) President, Ahmad Ahmad, has assumed office following his recent election to the post.
The Madagascan on Sunday chaired a meeting with staff of the organisation at the CAF Secretariat in Cairo, Egypt.
“This house belongs to you. CAF is yours. Let’s protect our institution,” Ahmad told staff.
“We politicians are just passing by but you have been called to stay. I have confidence in you and I am convinced that with you we will be able to succeed and develop African football more,” the CAF President told the staff as he set out his vision.”
At the end of his address, he announced he had accepted the resignation of the General Secretary, Hicham El Amrani, an ally of former president, Issa Hayatou whom Ahmad defeated earlier this month.
Deputy General Secretary, Essam Ahmed, will act in that capacity until further notice.
The CAF President also presented to the staff, two members of his cabinet; Hedi Hamel, Communications Advisor and Ludovic Christian Lomotsi, Legal Advisor.
Two members of the CAF Executive Committee, Constant Omari Selemani and Kwesi Nyantakyi, accompanied Ahmad.
Ahmad ended Hayatou’s 29 year reign at CAF.
