Nigerian oil and gas company, Aiteo, has been designated as the new title sponsor of the CAF Awards.
Aiteo is taking over from another Nigerian company, Globacom, who has been sponsoring the awards for over 5 years.
The Executive Committee validated the voting procedures and confirmed the decision of the Emergency Committee in Lagos, designating Nigerian company, Aiteo, as title sponsor of the next CAF Awards. The Awards Gala will be held on 4 January 2018 in Accra, Ghana.
Meanwhile, the CAF Executive Committee decided to abolish the position of CAF Education Officers, which had been created within each Member Association; notably, on the grounds that the conditions that justified their creation is now non-existent.
