caf-president-ahmad-honored-by-ghanaian-universityThe University of Professional Studies have honoured CAF President Ahmad with a doctorate degree in Law.
He will now be called Dr. Ahmad following his latest recognition by the institution.
Dr Ahmad’s selfless effort to revive African football prompted management of UPSA to reward him.
The attraction of a multi-million sponsorship deal from AITEO to support football on the continent seemed to have accounted to UPSA’s decision to honor him.
Ahmad took over as President of the Confederation of African football (CAF) last year to end up a long reign by former President Issah Hayatou.
The Malagasy however appointed Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi as his first vice President.
Since taking up as head of the continent’s football governing body, Dr. Ahmad has ensured the development of the game on the continents by introducing new reforms.
