Cameroon in crunch talks over Africa Cup of Nations

By Mutala Yakubu

Confederation of African Football (Caf) boss Ahmad Ahmad is due to meet Cameroon's President Paul Biya today, days before the central African nation goes to the polls amid political tensions.

Cameroon is set to host the Africa Cup of Nations next year but some have questioned if it will be ready to host the event.

Caf said after its meetings in Egypt over the weekend that any final decision on whether the hosting rights would be taken away from Cameroon will be made at the end of November.

Before then, Caf will undertake two separate inspection visits in October and November.

"Caf will not make any decision before the Cameroonian presidential election of 7 October," said Caf President Ahmad.

"We do not want to disrupt the campaign."
