The Confederation of Africa Football President Ahmad Ahmad has been slapped with a 5-year ban by the world football governing body FIFA.
FIFA cited financial misconduct as one of the reasons for his ban from football.
Ahmad Ahmad was slapped with four breaches and will now not be eligible to contest for the next CAF Presidential elections slated for March 2021.
“The adjucatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has found Ahmad Ahmad, the President of the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) and a FIFA Vice-President, guilty of having breached art. 15 (duty of loyalty), art. 20 (offering and accepting gifts or other benefits) and art. 25 (abuse of position) of the 2020 edition of the FIFA code of ethics, as well as art. 28 (misappropriation of funds) of the 2018 edition,” part of the statement reads.
Constant Omari will act as the Association’s president before a new election is held.
