Congolese Confederation Amari, Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), invited Malagasy Ahmed Ahmed, president of CAF, to assume his duties after the International Sports Court’s decision to suspend the decision to suspend him and freeze him from practicing any sporting activity for five years.
The CAF emergency committee held a videoconference meeting, and concluded through it the decision to return Ahmed Ahmed to his duties as CAF president until a final decision is made on his appeal in the International Sports Court “Cass”.
CAF issued an official statement announcing that Ahmed Ahmed would be temporarily returned to the presidency of the Gai Union, until the case was completely resolved, after he was suspended from practicing sports work, due to accusations of financial and administrative corruption during the tenure of the presidency of the Confederation of African Football.
The Sports Court issued a decision last Friday, setting the date for the urgent hearing, based on a request submitted by Ahmed Ahmed, to make the final decision in the case raised against him during the last period.
CAS announced that Ahmed Ahmed will be given the freedom to practice his activity in the football world without freezing until the file is finally decided upon.
The FIFA Ethics Committee decided to suspend Ahmed Ahmed Badai for “violating his duty of loyalty, offering gifts and other benefits, mismanaging funds, and abusing his position as president of the Confederation of African Football.”
In 2017, Ahmed was elected president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and was seeking a second 4-year term in which he would lead African football as Vice President of FIFA.
The 54 member federations of the Confederation of African Football are due to hold their electoral meeting on March 12th in Rabat, the capital of Morocco.
The International Federation approved the accreditation of four candidates for the presidency of the Confederation of African Football (CAF). After undergoing additional checks, the FIFA Review Committee gave the green light to Ahmed Ould Yahya and South Africa’s Patrice Mutsibi to join Senegalese Augustine Senghor and Ivory Coast Anoma.
