FG should consider hosting CHAN in 2018 – FCT FA boss

Mr Musa Talle, FCT FA Chairman on Sunday called on Federal Government to consider hosting the Championship of African Nations ( CHAN ) football tournament in 2018.

Talle made the call in an interview with t he News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja while reacting to the stripping of the hosting right from Kenya .

He said hosting CHAN in Nigeria would generate huge revenue for the country , stressing that “ Nigeria can go for CHAN hosting right , which will go a long way in improving our economy .

“ It would also improve the welfare of Nigerian youths . ”

Kenya was recently stripped of CHAN hosting right by Confederation of African Football ( CAF) .

CAF President Ahmad Ahmad announced the decision after considering the report of the inspection team.

The CAF inspection team was not satisfied with Kenya ’ s ability to fix the designated four venues for the event before the championship.
Only one of the four venues is ready for the 16 -nation football event slated for Jan. 12 to Feb . 4, 2018 .
