Fifa has confirmed the candidates who will be standing in its presidential elections to be held in February. The candidates are: Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Musa Bility, Jerome Champagne, Gianni Infantino, Michel Platini, Sheikh Salman
bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale
Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, officially suspended his ambition to run for the FIFA presidency on Tuesday (yesterday). Mr Kalu, who made this known through a press statement, said he had chosen to concentrate on his business even though he was humbled
by the wide support his earlier plan to contest enjoyed.
Trinidadian ex-footballer David Nakhid was not included on the list. The election is to find a successor to the suspended
Sepp Blatter, who is under criminal investigation.
