Liberia Football Association (LFA) President Mustapha Raji will contest for a slot in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Executive Committee unopposed following the rejection of his opponent’s candidacy by CAF.
CAF is expected to hold its 43rd ordinary and elective general assembly in Rabat, Morocco on March 12, 2021.
Raji was earlier cleared to contest for the CAF ExCo position after the Governance Committee of CAF met in Cairo on January 5 and 6, 2021, convened by its President, Mr. Michel Kizito Brizoua-Bi, to carry out the eligibility checks of candidates for the positions of CAF President and members of CAF Executive Committee.
The LFA President will be contesting for the West African Football Union (WAFU Zone A) slot.
His opponent, Antonio Souare, President of the Guinea Football Federation, failed to “provide satisfactory legal documentation proving his withdrawal from a sports betting company in Guinea,” according to CAF decision.
The Executive Committee was established by the Board of Directors in 1971. It comprises the directors appointed by the shareholders of Series A, B and C and is chaired by the Executive President. It approves financial operations within the limits by the Board.
