The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced its plan to honour Nigeria’s leader, President Muhamadu Buhari with a special Platinum Award at the forthcoming 2015 Glo-CAF Awards.
At a joint press conference by CAF, the highest football authority in Africa and Globacom, the sponsor of the annual CAF Awards, CAF said the investiture of President Buhari (GCFR) with the Platinum Award will be held during the Glo-CAF Award Gala at the International Conference Centre, Abuja on January 7, 2016.
CAF said the decision to confer President Buhari with the special award was in line with the tradition of CAF to honour the President of the country where the Glo-CAF Awards is held and to also show appreciation to President Buhari for his passionate commitment to the development of football in Africa.
