Ahmad vows to take African football to greater heights

After ending Isaa Hayatou’s 29-year reign as CAF president in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Thursday, the Madagascar Football Association boss Ahmad Ahmad vowed to to take African football to greater heights.
Ahmad had won 34 of the 54 votes in the election, alongside his 70-year-old Cameroonian rival Hayatou clearing the remaining 20.

The 57-year-old said he was determined for "change" at CAF, promising that football on the continent would develop fast.

Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick also sealed his place in the CAF executive committee after dethroning Moucharafou Anjorin of Benin Republic.
