The Confederation of African Football has appointed Oil magnet and promoter of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah,into her Organising Committee for the African Cup of Nations.
This was made known to the media by the President,Nigeria Football Federation,NFF,Mr Amaju Pinnick, and who is incidentally an Executive Committee member of CAF.
Dr Ubah who is also the Chairman of Anambra state Football Association has shown uncommon love for the game of football by being the first in Nigeria Professional League to build her football stadium and attracting good hands including Brazillians in his technical and playing realms
“Nigeria is very happy with this appointment. It is a big plus for private football club owners in our country. Chief (Dr) Ifeanyi Ubah has done very well over the years and he very much deserves this appointment.
“I am of the belief that he will justify the confidence reposed in him and bring his wealth of experience to bear in serving the committee,” said Pinnick
You may recall that AFCON,CAF’s flagship championship took-off as a three-team tournament in 1957 and by next year would record 24-team tournament as Cameroun host the continent.
