CAF Awards to Wear New Looks



The annual CAF Awards will receive a boost under the new regime in CAF, Amaju Pinnick has revealed.
The new member of the executive committee told the Sports Village Square that the show case will now be devoid of political colouration in line with similar event held annually by FIFA.
“Instead of making it a platform for politicians, it will now be that of sports personalities”, Pinnick told Sports Village Square.
Political figures in the host countries have always taken the centre stage at the presentations of awards to winners.
“This time around we will be looking at our legends to perform those important aspects for us. We have many legends in Africa and we have to get them involved in CAF activities”, said Pinnick.
He was particularly thrilled of the composition of the current executive which according to him comprise largely of people of like minds.
“Am excited to be in a body that has the likes of Danny Jordaan, Isha Johansen and Kwesi Nyantakyi among others.
