The Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, has been appointed by the Emergency Committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) into the Organizing Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations.
This was announced by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on their official website on Tuesday.
Ubah, who is also the Proprietor of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, FC UBAH, now joins the growing list of Nigerians who are currently serving in different committees in the continent’s football ruling body.
Speaking on the appointment, NFF president, Amaju Pinnick expressed his confidence that Ubah will not disappoint.
“Nigeria is very happy with this appointment. It is a big plus for private football club owners in our country. Chief (Dr) Ifeanyi Ubah has done very well over the years and he very much deserves this appointment.
“I am of the belief that he will justify the confidence reposed in him and bring his wealth of experience to bear in serving the committee,” Pinnick said.
