Ahmad Ahmad, Madagascar Football Association president, who intends to challenge Issa Hayatou for the Confederation of African Football(CAF) presidency, is in Abuja.

Ahmad is scheduled to meet with the senate president, Bukola Saraki, as well as the sports minister, Solomon Dalung.

The Madagascar FA president aims to stop Hayatou from securing a record eight tenure in office.

Hayatou has been CAF president since 1988.

Amaju Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), had recently pledged support for Ahmad’s bid to head CAF.

Pinnick noted that the election will be “a defining moment for African football” and that Ahmad was “courageous” in coming forward to challenge Hayatou.

Shortly thereafter, Dalung urged Pinnick to vote in the interest of Nigeria during the election.

The much-anticipated CAF election takes place in Ethiopia on March 16.
