Madagascar's FA Boss Ahmad Ends Hayatou's 29-year 'Stunt' as CAF President
However, he has been deposed by little known Ahmad Ahmad, the president of the Madagascar Football Association, who garnered 34 votes to Hayatou's 22 at Caf's congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Thursday.
COSAFA president Phillip Chiyangwa has welcomed Ahmad's appointment as CAF president, saying change was needed after 29 years of Issa Hayatou in charge.
Pinnick, who arrived the Murtala Mohammed International Airport at about 12:30pm aboard an Ethiopian Airline flight on Friday, assured Nigerians that a new phase of change will be witnessed under Ahmad Ahmad as the president of CAF. Hours after the announcement of his candidature, the Executive Committee of CAF (a committee which Ahmad also belonged to), withdrew the organisation of the under-17 AFCON from Madagascar due to poor preparation.
Before then, Pinnick had gone on CNN to publicly declare the support of the Nigerian Football Federation for Ahmad.
Ahmad's campaign manager was the Zimbabwe Football Association president Phillip Chiyangwa. "When you work hard for years and months and you succeed, that is great".

Skatell, who previously worked for the Republican Governors Association, founded IJR with GOP strategist Phil Musser in 2012. Alex Skatell, a founder of IJR, acknowledged the controversy about trip access in a statement on Tuesday.
Being the first serious candidate to challenge Hayatou in years, Ahmad led a strong campaign for the position.
Meanwhile, other African nations have hailed the move as a seismic change for African football.
As a result of his defeat, Hayatou also loses his positions with Federation Internationale de Football Association. The 57-year-old has promised to modernize the body and make it more transparent. Both those times he won by a landslide and hadn't faced a challenger in more than a decade.
It is against this background that we find CAF's decision to appoint Seychelles referee Bernard Camille, who carries a stink as a referee known to be biased towards TP Mazembe, for tomorrow's CAF Champions League decider against CAPS United to be very baffling to say the least. The two had a falling out recently, however, after the Egypt Competitions Authority accused them of breaching anti-monopoly regulations over a marketing and television rights deal and referred them to criminal prosecution.
