Minister of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah has declared Ghana’s readiness to host the 2018 African Nation Championship.
Isaac Asiamah believes that after successfully hosting the 2017 WAFU competition Ghana is ready to do more by attempting to host 15 other countries that have qualified for the CHAN tournament.
The tournament which gets underway in January has no host after CAF's decision to strip Kenya of the rights following a series of delays reported by the inspection team.
According to CAF First Vice President Kwesi Nyantakyi, the unready state of infrastructure forced the governing body to take the tournament away from the East African country.
On Saturday, a bidding process was opened immediately after the decision was announced in Accra.
“I'm adamant Ghana is ready, at any point in time, to host any CAF tournament'' Asiamah told Asempa FM
However, a former Ghana Football Association Chairman and also a member of the local organising committee of WAFU Cup Alhaji MND Jawula disagrees with the Minister.
