The new executive committee of the Confederation has named Prince Seidou Mbombo Njoya appointed CAF vice president with immediate effect.
The president of the Cameroon Football Federation and CAF executive committee member replaces Faouzi Lekjaa who leaves the vice presidential role after being voted into the FIFA council.
The experienced football administrator who only knew he will be candidate in governance executive committee role 48hours ago is now the fifth most powerful man in African football.
Mbombo Njoya is expected to return to Cameroon later on Sunday in a private jet alongside newly-elected CAF president Dr Patrice Motsepe.
He steps into the vice presidential role barely four years after compatriot Issa Hayatou left the office of the CAF president after 28 years of service.
It has been an amazing rise for the Cameroonian football administrator who keeps winning the confidence of a growing number of persons at home and abroad.
