New CAF president Ahmad has cast doubt over his long term future as the leader of the Africa’s governing insisting he is even uncertain if he will run for a second term.
The Malagasy completely ruled out a third term in office opening up the chance for others including Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi to step up to the table in the near future.
The 57-year old man who defeated long-serving president of the federation Issah Hayatou in last month’s election insists improving the game on the continent is more important than the number of years he will serve as the leader of the federation.
He completely ruled out a third term of office as he remained uncertain on a second.
“I don't even know if l will do a second mandate, but three mandates, it is impossible,” Ahmad ruled out a third term in an interview with VOA Africa.
“I will not,” he insisted.
With Hayatou leaving office at the age of 70 after ruling the federation for 28 years resulting in his shameful defeat, Ahmad says he values his life and only focus on the first term of office.
“I love my life and l will focus on the current term,” he said.
“I will respectfully try to keep my promise of changing things in the management of African football,” he added.
The emphatic statement by the highly respected leader has thrown many Ghanaians in the land of hope with expectations that GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is likely to be named the 1st Vice President of CAF, could be the next CAF president after Ahmad.
