Mouad Hajji, a Moroccan has been in the saddle since April 2019.

His resignation comes at a time when Caf is under close scrutiny from football’s world governing body Fifa, for whom Pricewaterhouse Coopers recently compiled a damning audit of African football’s ruling body.

“I would like to warmly thank President Ahmad Ahmad for giving me the opportunity to serve the football of our continent at such a level of responsibility,” Hajji said in a statement.

In a statement, Caf said that Hajji had resigned for ‘personal reasons’ while also expressing a need to ‘return to Morocco as soon as possible’.

An emergency meeting will now be convened by CAF President Ahmad Ahamd to appoint an Acting General Secretary.
