It is a big honour to be voted on the CAF Executive and I thank my Executive Committee at FUFA, Delegates, the team that has campaigning for me. This is not a personal victory alone but victory for us all. As young leaders on the African continent, we need to come up with the best ideas to help elevate Africa like other Confederations. I thank the Almighty Allah. I thank those who voted for me and the rest of Africa. In a special way, I thank my people from Uganda, the football family. We shall continue to work as one complete unit’
