The world football overseeing body, FIFA has made arrangements to assume control over the running of the Confederation of African Football in the wake of debasement outrages encompassing the controlling body for African affiliation football.
The declaration is required to be made in a public interview in Egypt on Thursday, the eve of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON ) before the hosts, Egypt takes on Zimbabwe on Friday evening.
The New York Times revealed that the choice was made because of debasement outrage of CAF president Ahmad who was quickly captured for scrutinizing a fortnight prior in France before being discharged without charge.
There is additionally a deluge of charges of bad behaviour, extending from budgetary botch to lewd behaviour against Ahmad, who has kept on denying the claims against him and has professed to be the casualty of a smear battle.
“The rule of the temporary FIFA High Commissioner for Africa would be to conduct a root-and-branch review of governance of the confederation, oversee operational management of the organization, and recommend where needed a series of reform efforts, to be agreed with CAF member associations and with FIFA in order to put CAF itself on a modern and sound footing, improve its image and reputation and thus ensure that CAF is better equipped to face future challenges and to grasp future opportunities,” FIFA said in setting up the arrangement, according to an internal document seen by The New York Times.
