General Secretary of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Veron Mosengo-Omba says talks are underway between CAF and FIFA to directly finance some of the activities of the zonal bodies instead of routing such support through CAF.
He said this on Saturday, May 22 in Accra during the 14th WAFU Zone B General Assembly in Accra – Ghana.
He believes that delegating more powers to the zonal unions will help quicken football development in Africa while giving the chance to the regions to function properly.
“The regional zones will play a major role for CAF in the development of football on the entire continent because it is a necessary avenue for improvement,” Mosengo-Omba said on Saturday.
“We don’t have to wait for CAF officials to come directly from Cairo to implement plans. We are going to strengthen the unions with the necessary seminars and workshops to ensure that the zones can directly implement them in partnership with the Member Associations.”he added.
Agenda for the congress included; report on budget activities, approval of the budgeted activities report, program of budgeted activities, presentation of 2021-2022 operating budget, approval of the operating budget, and exam of the proposals for the texts governing the functioning of WAFU B among others.
The next General Assembly will take place in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso.
