Kenya was stripped of its hosting right of the 2018 Championship of African Nations [CHAN] and Ghana are already pushing for the right of the tournament which is less than four months to kick off.

The irony here is that Ghana has infrasturactural deficits to contend with and an unbiased assessment of the just ended WAFU Cup of Nations will give credence to that.

But regardless of the situation that faces the country in the area of sports the Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah has announced that Ghana will be ready to welcoming the rest of Africa should the button be passed onto the great West African football nation.

“As a country we are ready to host any CAF organized tournament. We did well in hosting the WAFU tournament without any bad report,’ the minister noted.

“We have Tamale Sports Stadium, Kumasi Sports Stadium and the renovation of the Accra Sports Stadium will start this year,” honorable Asiamah added.
