News going around has it that, NFF President Amaju Pinnick will on Wednesday in Cairo, Egypt preside over his first meeting as President of the Organizing Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Following the toppling of the old order at CAF seven months ago, leading to the enthronement of new blood headed by Mr. Ahmad, Nigeria’s Pinnick also won election as Member of the Executive Committee, and two months later was appointed the President of AFCON.
It is the first time that the Organizing Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations is not headed by the CAF President.
The Committee on AFCON is the largest in CAF, having about 35 members, and most of them being presidents of Member Associations. The 1st Vice President is South Africa FA boss, Dr. Danny Jordaan while Zimbabwe FA boss, Dr. Philip Chiyangwa is the 2nd Vice President.
