Confederation of African Football president Ahmad Ahmad has been found to have breached various codes of ethics , BBC Sport Africa understands .
On Wednesday , the FIFA vice – president from Madagascar announced his intention to go for a second term in office when Caf elections take place next March .
This could now be in doubt after the investigatory chamber of football ’ s world governing body determined that he has breached various codes of conduct.
The next step is for the adjudicatory chamber to hand out its sentencing, a source said , adding that this will possibly happen by the end of November .
Any ban is likely to rule out Mr Ahmad ’ s chances of standing for re – election , given he would have to pass an eligibility test to resume his place on the Fifa Council.
BBC Sport Africa understands that the alleged breaches include Mr Ahmad ’ s role in the controversial deal involving Tactical Steel .
Tactical Steel is a little – known French gym manufacturer , run by an old friend of Ahmad ’s then attaché Loic Gerand , which provided sportswear equipment to Caf in 2017 after an original deal with Puma was cancelled.
The deal with Puma , which was slightly smaller , was worth just under $ 250 , 000 while the alternative deal with Tactical Steel – for 22 ,000 items instead of 15 ,000 – came to just over $ 1 m .
