Withdrawal from the CAN: Paul Biya is already negotiating the organization of CAN 2021


Immediately after the publication of the decision to withdraw the organization from the final phase of Can 2019 in Cameroon, the government blamed the coup and then was at loggerheads with the president of the African Football Confederation. But, after five days of cogitation, Yaoundé finally decided to side with the leaders of the African Football Confederation to grant their violins on a new edition of the final phase of the African Cup of Nations to be held at the Cameroon.

During a high-level meeting held Wednesday, December 05, 2018 in the services of the Prime Minister in Yaounde, the Cameroonian government decided to stop attacking the CAF, the CAS or the media.

"Cameroon will formally take steps to accept the offer of postponement to the year 2021, then postpone any official communication to incriminate the CAF or its President.The Prime Minister has prescribed the appeasement with the CAF" indicates a source who took part in the meeting.

Thus, the Cameroonian government has decided to turn the page of CAN 2019 and hope to host the edition of 2021 previously attributed to the Ivory Coast.
