Speaking to BBC in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Nyamilandu said this change is good for African football as the organisation will now start working together with all African countries for the development of football in the continent.

“This will bring Africa football development together, in the past leadership they were only concentrating only on CAF competitions,” he noted.

Nyamilandu said he expect more from the new CAF president as he takes office.

“We want the real togetherness when it comes to the development of African football. We have the talent in the continent what is needed is to work together for the betterment of our football,” he said.

FAM President added that the change in the leadership of CAF shows how Africa wants to move forward with football development in the continent

Hayatau has been criticized on how he was running the affairs of CAF and been bias to West African countries when it comes to African football development and hosting of CAF competitions.

Ahmad won with 34 votes against of Hayatau 20 votes as 54 African Football Associations were voting.
