President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Mr Amaju Pinnick, has been impeached as 1st Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Pinnick is the President of AFCON 2019 Organising committee

His removal took place on Thursday at CAF Executive Committee meeting, after a well attended congress in Cairo Egypt.

It would be recalled that Pinnick was elevated to the position after the corruption case brought against former Ghana FA President and CAF 1st VP, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

However, there is no explanation yet on why Amaju Pinnick was removed from his position.

CAF executive committee on Wednesday agreed to allow FIFA Secretary General take charge of the administration of CAF for a period of 6 Months.

The FIFA Secretary is expected to take over the running of CAF due to allegation of corruption in spite objection by some Executive Committee members.

Samoura will be in charge for an initial six-month period due to begin on August 1, with her team responsible to carry out a “full forensic audit” of CAF, whose President Ahmad Ahmad is facing allegation of corruption.

Reports says Ahmad was arrested over corruption charges in Paris last month.
