CAN 2021 – The Olembé stadium will finally not host the opening ceremonies of the CAN that will take place in Cameroon in January and February. OCamer.com has just been informed of this by a source close to CAF's ruling circles.
The observation is on the ground seems clear that all the works of this infrastructure dedicated to the CAN 2021 will not be able to be received in time.
If CAF has once raised its voice, there will have been no miracle. Outdoor layouts are not built like Lego pieces. It is necessary to set up the parts gradually. Cement needs time to ripen. And grass to grow, shrubs to green.
CAF warns about can 2021
The ultimatum issued by the secretary general of CAF a few days ago had pushed Cameroonians to a burst of pride. It had also given a boost to the multiple works, especially outside. Minister Ngoh Ngoh had even travelled from Cairo to give assurances to the institution's general assembly.
All things considered, the construction of this infrastructure was not done according to the rigors of sound project management. Tasks that could have been done concurrently were not. This is the example of the outdoor facilities that did not depend in any way on the level of progress of the field, the stands, etc ….
The Minister of Sports prepared in a video monologue,the population for the possibility of the abandonment of Olembé. For the CAN 2021, CAF, meanwhile, will anchor the new reality at the Japoma Stadium, which has been ready for several months.
Paul Biya will therefore have to move out of his base to experience the opening of the competition. Finally, if his health allows it.
