Nigeria, 2 Other Countries Submit Joint Bid To Host 2025 Afcon
West African countries Nigeria, Ghana and Benin Republic have submitted a joint bid to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.
The West African nations are in competition for the hosting rights along with North African countries Algeria and Morocco.
Ghana’s sports minister Mustapha Ussif told the media: “There’s a discussion that Ghana should bid with the likes of Nigeria and Benin. We are still considering it. We have not taken a decision yet but there is that discussion that we should get sister countries so that we can put in that bid.”
Initially, the tournament was to be hosted by Guinea, but the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rescinded the decision due to a lack of funds to implement the required facilities.
It would be recalled that Ghana and Nigeria co-hosted the 2008 edition of the AFCON.
