This is Morocco’s first candidacy to the powerful FIFA Council, which is the main decision-making organ of the organisation outside the FIFA Council.
Lekjaa holds several positions within the bodies and committees of world and continental football including being second vice-president of CAF, chairman of the finance committee of CAF, vice-chairman of the Organising Committee of Inter-clubs Competitions and Management of the Club Licensing System within CAF in addition to sitting on the Governance Committee of FIFA.
The 50-year old experienced administrator was also at the origin of the initiative to set up a reflection on the development of football infrastructures in Africa, an initiative that gave birth to a CAF seminar in which FIFA was involved last January in Rabat.
During his presidency of the FRMF, the Moroccan championship became the best league in Africa according to CAF ranking. – Agencies
