Presidents from the 54 Football Associations in Africa have been invited to Libreville, Gabon by the Confederation of African Football.

The invitation is seen as a move to strategise ahead of the 39th CAF ordinary assembly where a new president will be elected on March 16 in Ethiopia.

Issa Hayatou, who is seeking re-election will contest against president of the Madagascar Fa, Ahmad Ahmad.

Hayatou was elected to the role of CAF president in 1988 and if he wins again it will extend his reign to 33 years as head of African Football’s governing body.
