"I wish the remaining candidates the best of luck and pray that CAF comes out stronger than ever after these elections," the Ghana FA President said to a wild applause of the delegates.

"I plan to continue to offer CAF my very best of developmental ideas. I will continue to support the good works and look forward to serving at the highest level in future. Thank you for all your support during this time," Mr Simeon-Okraku added.

The elections will be held tomorrow in Cairo as a new CAF President is sworn into office.
