Following Kenya’s loss of the rights to host CHAN 2018 football tournament, Mr Musa Talle, FCT FA Chairman has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to consider hosting the games instead.

Talle made the call in a media interview, saying hosting the gamees would generate huge revenue for the Nigeria, 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.”

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) recently stripped Kenya of hosting rights after considering the report of inspection team which 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.
