The incumbent President, Issa Hayatou may have started to see "the hand writing on the wall," is time for Change at Confederation of African Football (CAF).

And anxiety continue to mount as Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ghana Football Association (GFA) and Council of Southern African Football Associations (COSAFA) have unanimously declare their Support for Ahmad, currently the head of Madagascar's FA.

Ahmad is challenging long-standing Hayatou in the elections holding this month of March in Ethiopia.


Ahmad already assured of the backing of the 14 member states under the umbrella of Young FA bosses from across Africa, working as group to change the CAF leadership.

NFF, GFA, and COSAFA support for Ahmad could make things even more difficult for Hayatou who was re-elected unopposed during the last CAF presidential elections in 2013.


The Cameroonian will be going for a record 8th term. But this is a time when old horse could laid to rest.... And the sign are all there... The change flowing down right from FIFA  Presidency...and Gianni Infantino desire to work with young entreprising administrators with creative and innovative ideas, away from the old and conservatives.

Hayatou, 71, is also the Senior Vice President of FIFA. He has been CAF President since 10 March 1988. But again, it is looking like the wind of change will sweep him away this time around.
