CAF president, Ahmad Ahmad, has debunked the allegations that Cameroon will be stripped the 2019 Nations Cup hosting right.
Ahmad paid a courtesy call on Cameroon president, Paul Biya at the Unity Palace on Tuesday to discuss on the level of preparedness and to reassure him of CAF decision to ensure the competition is hosted by Cameroon.
According to a statement available on African football official website, Ahmad said the body has never envisaged such a scenario as the decision solely lies on the hand of Cameroon who has the final say if to host it or not.
Ahmad said he was satisfied with the government’s outright willingness to develop football infrastructure before the start of the competition.
Biya used the opportunity to request for Cameroon to gain full ownership of the CAF Excellence Centre in Mbankomo which Ahmad accepted and an agreement was reached for proper documentation for the transfer of the newly created Football Academy (ANAFOOT)
Present at the meeting was Cameroon football icon, Samuel Eto’o Fils and the Normalization Commission of FECAFOOT, Dieudonne Happi.
