Cameroon’s Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary, says all projects earmarked for 2019 AFCON will continue to undergo rehabilitation and construction despite CAF’s decision to withdraw the country’s right to host the prestigious Africa Cup of Nations tournament next year.
Minister Tchiroma was speaking to the press today in Yaounde. He said the government is still shocked over Caf’s unfair decision insisting that Cameroon was capable of hosting the competition.
He however urged Cameroonians to remain calm, stating the country will not relent efforts in developing African football.
