The newly elected President of Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad has said he has refused to accept a salary from African football’s governing body. Ahmad’s victory in March ended the 29-year reign of Cameroonian Issa Hayatou’s.
“I’ve refused a CAF salary for the simple reason it doesn’t respect good administration,” he told BBC Sport.
“The salaries of all CAF employees, from administrators to the executive committee and president, all have to be transparent.”
The 57-year-old from Madagascar held his first senior CAF meetings on Monday ahead of the FIFA Congress on Thursday 11 May.
