Former Black Stars player, Anthony Baffoe, has formally resigned from his role as Deputy General Secretary of the continent’s football governing body.
He took on the role in 2017 but has confirmed his exit which will take place at the end of June.
“This was a decision I took three months ago due to personal reasons. The journey which started in November 2017 sadly ends, giving way to the start of a fresh journey,” he said in a statement.
“I count myself lucky to have served CAF and being at the forefront of the administration of the game on the continent. Praise be to Almighty Allah. I am grateful to the CAF Executive Committee led by Patrice Motsepe for the opportunity, not forgetting former CAF President Ahmad Ahmad for seeing the potential in me at first hand,” he added.
“I leave with my head high as together with your support we achieved many milestones and crossed many hurdles as far as the development and promotion of African football is concerned. As the first footballer to serve in such a senior management position, I am convinced I won’t be the last. My fellow legends, thanks for the support and my family for always being my Rock,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Veron Mosengo-Omba, CAF Secretary-General, has thanked the former Ghanaian International for his dedicated and selfless and appreciable work ethics at CAF.
