Give the CAF presidency to South Africa if you want African football to develop.

I think is a curse to African football.

Saying that he as been their for the past eighteen years what about some FIFA President for example Jules Rimet of France that stays their for good 33 years, Dr. Joao Havelange of Brazil that also stays for 24 years so is not a big deal.

Enough of name calling.

Its not fair at all.

It could be recalled that he has helped Nigeria through the backdoor as well, even though he makes loads of money from Naija as well.

He knows how to play his Politics very well which is why he keep on winning.

[color=#000099]Well do you say a blessing to Africa, certainly Yes. If he has been a blessing to his home country and some part of member states then thats a plus to him. But to Nigeria, then thats where the question lies. But i should also guess that Nigeria is bitting more than it can chew. Bidding for Nations cup, Common Wealth games, World cup, etc. at the same time shows that we as a country are demanding for too much. Why not try to concentrate on a single event and when the bid is lost, we can then analyze the circumstances surrounding the botched bid. Thou we r Nigerians, we would always stick to our Country, and the prayer is when a Nigerian assumes the exaulted position, the fatherland should also have its turn of favouritism. But we shouldnt be selfish in trying to have it all. One love!

Issa Hayatou is a thief and a shameless dictator, what i actually dislike about him is the way he helps Cameroun to cheat.

they disobey all CAF rules, FIFA rules and they get away with it because of him. Remember what happened at the 2000 nations cup in Lagos,cheatinn us to the title. Imagine Etoo winning african footballer of the year twice, what happened to Okocha in 2004 is fraud, he deserved to wint.

The most annoying part is Amos Adamu, bowing to him, he should be the CAF president.

Like this case of awarding Angola the Nations Cup in 2010. First thing s first, I think it is demeaning that we bid for everything that comes along. Having said that, we were the best prepared country to host the damned thing, and CAF (bleeping Issa Hayatou) gave it to Angola who have just one stadium! Then to add insult to injury, placed us on standby should Angola fail to be ready. I want to state here that I will personally be responsible for murder should we accept to host when Angola fail to meet their obligation as they surely will. Time to give the idiots a dose of their own medicine!

Hayatou has been excellent for Cameroonian football. But under him CAF had become a centre of 'ethnic' politics. Anyways, looking at CAF in the first few years under the man, you'll see that there was really no progress. I think that whatever progress CAF has made in the last few years is because businesses saw that there is money to be made from the game on the continent. . .

If i am not wrong, Alhaji issa came in 1988.

The first blow is Henry Nwosu/ Jean Diramba [ Ababoy1, Rikkyjen and other Elders in the house. Did you remember?]

The cause is the death of Orok Oyo Orok, maybe Baba would have contested.
