Ousman B. Conateh, better known as OB Conateh was yesterday decorated with the title Honorary Vice President of West African Football Union (WAFU) in Nigeria.

Mr. Ousman B. Conateh was among the invited dignitaries to witness the WAFU Under 20 Championship final played yesterday in DeltaState in Nigeria.

Isaa Hayatou, the president of Confederation African Football (CAF), was also in attendance.

Mr Conateh needs no introduction in not only in African Football, but also in the whole world.

He commands a lot of respect even back home in The Gambia, where he served for many years as the President of The Gambia Football Association.

He was WAFU First Vice President until they handed over to the new executive last April.

Mr Conateh, in April this year, received WAFU Meritorious Award in appreciation of his selfless service and contribution to football in the sub-region.

He is expected back home on Saturday.
