Regarding the allegations and complaints of Musa Bility he said thy since his arrival at the head of the executive committee the statutes oblige him to organize two meetings From the executive committee a year now we have doubled the quotas of meetings of the executive committee, every two months there is a meeting of the emergency committee of the CAF.

Ahmad said ‘I am not like some politicians who do not realize what they promise, I challenge people to watch my program if I have not respected one aspect of my program.

Statutory, there is only the president of the CAF who represents the institution with the thirds, no members of the executive committee has this mandate, only I was elected.

I have nothing to answer for everything that happens, the main thing is that I evolve with my family of football which is the CAF.

Compared to the multiple attacks on the administration of CAF after the attributions of the various CAN in Cameroon 2021, Ivory Coast 2023, and Guinea 2025, he said ‘I am very proud today what we have not said about Today, what are these people talking about? Who is right today? It is the CAF that is right with our African heads of state who understood.

In 2017, the African Football Confederation, chaired by Mr. HAYATOU, re-signed a contract with Lagardère Sport to entrust all commercial aspects to Lagardère Sport.

If Lagardère signs a contract with VISA, or any other company I have to applaud because it’s money this company could find for African football, I do not have the right to interfere in anything on this contract.

It’s foolish to criticize the CAF and its president on this aspect it’s not my job. »
