President Mustapha Raji has been elected as an executive committee member of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Raji bettered Guinea Football Federation President Mamadou Antonio Souaré by 37 to 14 votes for the West African Football Union (WAFU Zone ‘A’) slot at CAF 43rd ordinary and elective general assembly in Rabat, Morocco on 12 March.
Souare, who is also WAFU president, was cleared by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 11 March following his disqualification by CAF Governance Commission on 29 January and 12 February.
WAFU Vice President Raji was expected to contest unopposed after he passed an integrity check done by CAF Governance and FIFA Review Committees.
The election of Raji brings to number- the third Liberian after Marcel Bertin and Musa Hassan Bility to become a CAF executive committee member.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s Patrice Motsepe was elected as the eighth CAF president unopposed following the withdrawals of Mauritania’s Ahmed Yahya, Jacques Anouma of Ivory Coast and Senegal’s Augustin Senghor.
