While some doubted the lack of credibility of CAF’s Vice President Constant Omari and President Ahmad Ahmad, BBC obtained a document from the African Football Confederation attesting that contrary to what his senior officials have affirmed infront of the world, AFCON 2021 was not reassigned to Cameroon: ” We confirm that no decision was taken by the Executive Committee. We are taking care of the 2019 edition first and then we will see”.
Cameroon, who believed this vulgar deception on the part of CAF, therefore understands that the letter of Ahmad Ahmad offering the organization of 2021 to Cameroon, was just a way of fooling the Cameroonian government.
This is because the Executive Committee was afraid that Cameroon would contest this decision before the highest court of sports (CAS) according to sources. They managed to “confuse” the Cameroon government, humiliating the Cameroonian people not once but twice, firstly by having the organization withdrawn under false pretenses, then by being tricky to avoid a possible appeal before CAS, And they did well, at the expense of an ineffective Cameroonian government.
Ivory Coast has also revealed the confirmation by CAF that no final decision had been taken for the moment , as regards the organization of AFCON 2021.
Despite the request for an audience with the Ivorian Head of State, Alassane Ouattara, for Ahmad Ahmad to exchange with the Ivorian authorities, the country is completely serene about the organization of the CAN 2021 and are ready to fight CAF at all levels, unlike the weak Cameroonian authorities who seems to accept anything that CAF pours on them, a real ridicule, to say the least.
