Jordan’s Prince Ali Al Hussein and Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, president of the Asian Football Confederation, presented themselves to delegates of the sub-regional football body at the congress of the West African Football Union (WAFU Zone B) in Accra.
The two contestants addressed the delegates, hoping to convince the football chiefs to vote for them in the election which will be held on February 26 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Al Khalifa promised to continue with Sepp Blatter’s project that assisted less-developed countries to shore up their football development and catch up with the rest of the world.
“Many countries in Africa and Asia need support and I would work towards meeting the needs of those that are really in dire need as we stand for solidarity for all,” he told journalists.
Prince Hussein said he will revolutionize the sports by making the governing body open and transparent in its operations to restore faith in the organization and give empowerment to the national associations.
Gianni Infantino of Italy, as well as the representatives of Jerome Champagne and South Africa’s Tokyo Sexwale, who were expected to address the WAFU delegates, failed to turn up. Enditem
