The newly sworn-in Confederation of African Football (CAF) President, Ahmad, says he has refused to accept a salary from African football’s governing body.
He told BBC Sport; “I’ve refused a Caf salary for the simple reason it doesn’t respect good administration,”.
“The salaries of all Caf employees, from administrators to the executive committee and president, all have to be transparent.”
The 57-year-old from Madagascar held his first senior CAF meetings on Monday ahead of the FIFA Congress on Thursday 11 May. Key among the topics being discussed are how to reform CAF.
His election in March ended Cameroonian Issa Hayatou’s 29-year reign.
