"We have presented to CAF president and his secretary General a document carrying a full activity plan for the years to come-that plan illustrates how hugely we are committed to promoting the beautiful game in the country," the president said in his press statement Friday.

He said CAF leaders were fully lauded for the successive activities by his federation including the recent historic move to insure Djibouti football players and the entire soccer volunteers in the country and as well as the biggest ever grassroots development programme which was launched in Djibouti in January this year.
