The African Football Confederation (CAF) announced on Tuesday that it had appointed Moroccan Abdelmounaïm Bah, acting secretary general of the continental authority, to replace his compatriot Mouad Hajji, who has resigned.
“During a consultation of the Emergency Committee, the African Football Confederation (CAF) unanimously approved the appointment of Mr. Abdelmounaïm Bah, commercial director, to the post of Acting Secretary General”, writes CAF in a press release.
“All of the members have full confidence in Mr. Abdelmounaïm Bah with regard to the qualities displayed since his arrival at the African Football Confederation, especially during the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt”, said the same source.
Abdelmounaïm Bah takes office from now, until the next meeting of the Executive Committee. He will also continue to serve as the commercial director, to whom he was appointed in June 2018, the statement said.
