CAF President Ahmad says the African Football Federation is ready to appear at the Court of Arbitration for Sports, CAS, if the Cameroon government drags the body to court for withdrawing AFCON hosting rights.
Mr Ahmad said Cameroon should look at article 35 and 92 of the body which specifies procedures to grant a country rights to host a competition.
He further said, CAS would have found CAF guilty if the executive body had given Cameroon the okay.
To Ahmad, CAF was trying to avoid another Cabinda Incident( 2010 AFCON in Angola where Togolese team was attacked)
He said Cameroon was not ready both in the infrastructure and security domains.
According to the CAF boss, Cameroon will host 2021 AFCON while Cote D’Ivoire will host that of 2023.He says the latter is not even ready for the 2021 event.
