July 18 15:12 2019

Chairman of AFCON 2019 organising committee and President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has been removed as CAF 1st Vice President. 

The decision was taken at the CAF Executive Committee meeting in Cairo, on the eve of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals. 

Pinnick replaced former Ghana FA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi, as 1st Vice President to Ahmad Ahmad in June 2018, following a FIFA ban to Nyantakyi. 

Report has that the Relationship between Pinnick and Ahmad deteriorated with Pinnick’s decision to walk out of a controversial vote to order for a replay of the 2019 CAF Champions League final, believed to be what broke the camel’s back

Amaju Pinnick has also been accused of setting up influential African journalists and engaging people alleged to be allies of Issa Hayatou to bring the reign of Ahmad to its knees. 

It is alleged that Amaju declared war on Ahmad after CAF Secretary General, Mouad Hajji replied a letter from the Nigeria investigatory team that demanded clarification of over $500,000 payment made by the Nigeria Footballs Federation to CAF in 2015. 

South Africa’s FA boss Danny Jordaan has also become the 3rd Vice President of the continent’s football governing body. 
Meanwhile congolese FA president, Omari Constant is now the 1st vice president of CAF and Fouzi Lakjaa president of Morocco Football Association is the 2nd vice president
