Kabba appointed into CAF Organising Committee

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The Gambia Football Federation president Lamin Kabba Bajo has been appointed member of the CAF Organising Committee for the Total Africa Cup of Nations.

Mr Bajo received news of his deserved appointment recently just after the Continental body concluded their executive meeting in Cape Coast Ghana where the final of the West Africa Football Union (WAFU) was held.

This is the largest sub-committee under the CAF purview mandated for the organisation and successful conduct of CAF’S flagship tournament.

It is the second time in just under seven months that Mr Bajo has been entrusted heavily by CAF for his inclusion into high-profile positions within the continental body.

 It could be recalled that the Gambian FF President was earlier appointed member into the CAF Reforms Committee tasked with revising and restructuring CAF competition format in line with international standards.

Both accolades came on the heels of a new Football dispensation in CAF after Madagascar FA president Ahmad Ahmad emerged winner at last March CAF election, held in Addis Ababa Ethiopia that brought to an end to the long time reign of Issa Hayatou.

Kabba was formerly a member of the CAF Organising Committee for the Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations, where he rose through the ranks to become a match commissioner at the tournament held in Senegal.

The news of Mr Bajo’s new assignment was received at the Football Federation with joy and pride, with renewed hope of the Football leadership’s fervent wish of developing football in The Gambia, as enshrined in the GFF Executive Committee’s Four -Year blue print.
