Former FIFA executive committee member, Dr Amos Adamu, is back on official football duty after years of being out.
Adamu was suspended by FIFA from all football activities for three years in 2010 after being fingered in a bribery scandal.
Although the ban expired in 2013, Adamu kept a low profile, until he resurfaced on Monday.
The former Director-General of the National Sports Commission has been named as a member of CAF's Nations Cup Organising Committee, a key committee overseeing the organisation of Africa's most important football competition.
Adamu was once one of the most powerful men in Nigerian, African and even world football before a Sunday Times investigation implicated him in a corruption case.
He was once tipped to take over as CAF President at the end of Issah Hayatou's tenure before the ban put paid to that ambition.
Other Nigerians involved in new CAF appointments are Gbenga Elegbeleye and Dominic Oneya, who are in committees, while Emeka Inyama and Chris Green have been dropped.
Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick, former President Aminu Maigari and Aisha Falode are among Nigerians who retained their CAF postions.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
