The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has appointed Samson Adamu as the new director of competitions and Abdulhakeem Mustapha as president of appeals board.

Amaju Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), made the announcement on Twitter.

Mustapha is a barrister and senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) while Adamu(pictured) is the brain behind COPA Lagos invitational beach soccer tournament.

Pinnick wrote on his page: “While wishing the Super Eagles the best of luck in the final of the African Nations Championship, CHAN, I wish to announce, with pride, that Mr. Samson Adamu is the new CAF Director of Competitions and Mr. A.U Mustapha, SAN, is the new President of the CAF Appeals Board.

“Nothing fills me with more pride than seeing Nigerians striving to make football on the continent better. While thanking Nigerians for their support and their patience with all of us in charge of taking our football higher, I’m also grateful for the love you’ve shown us all.

“I’ll also like to thank, particularly, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, for creating the enabling environment for football stability and prosperity. His support for the NFF is immense.

“Our football is on the rise again and with everybody’s support and the continuing hardwork of everybody involved, the sky will be our stepping stone. So I say, from the bottom of my heart; thank you, Nigerians. Thank you.”
