Months after Nigeria’s Former Super Eagles player and coach, Samson Siasia received a life ban from FIFA over a bribery scandal, things also seem to have fallen apart for Confederation of African Football President and FIFA Vice- President Ahmad Ahmad as he is on the verge of receiving a ban from FIFA after it was found out he breached various code of ethics.
Ahmad who has been Caf’s president since March 2017 announced on Wednesday his intention to contest for a second term in CAF’s next election scheduled for next year, this may be impossible as the investigatory chamber of FIFA discovered he breached codes of conduct and its adjudicatory chamber will by November hand out its sentencing, a source told BBC sports, Africa.
According to BBC sport Africa, this ban comes as a result of Ahmad’s role in a controversial deal involving Tactical steel, a French gym manufacturer owned by Ahmad’s friend and also with attache Loic Geran which provided sportswear equipment to CAF in 2017 after an initial deal with Puma was cancelled.
The deals were said to have leaked out when CAF’s former Secretary- General laid the complaint in March 2019 when he sent a documentary evidence to FIFA followed by another evidence which was provided by CAF’s former Finance Director Mohamed El Sherei.
According to a FIFA spokesperson who refused to comment on the Ethics case when contacted, said ” please note that as a general policy, the Independent Ethics Committee does not comment on potential ongoing proceedings nor on Wednesday whether or not investigations are underway into alleged cases”.
