The CAASABA 2018 has come and gone it is left, to be seen what the Nigerian Athletics Federation have learnt from the various challenges, and hitches that came with it.

The Arrival period and opening day encountered too many difficulties, from miscommunication to alleged abandonment of some National Teams at the Airport even down to no proper arrangements for journalists, this has led to widespread criticism by both local and international bodies. 

Another amazing experience was the falling of the Tank which supplied water to the swimming pools, This challenges faced has also been escalated in many ways which has also dented the Nations Image even as they seek to bid for the Worlds athletics championships.

Solomon Ogba came out to refute some of the claims categorically calling the media agents who reported some of the news as “blind” and he also added that the Tank fell a 100m from the stadium in an area under construction. The question still remains has Nigeria not got what it takes to Host Africa in one city? How then will they want to host the world in 2023.

The Ghanaian government has ordered the dissolution of its national football association.

 

This followed the filming of the president of the Ghanaian Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, apparently accepting a cash gift of sixty-five thousand dollars from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman.

 

Ghana's Information Minister, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said the government decided to take immediate steps to address widespread rot in the system, adding that interim measures to govern Ghanaian football would be announced soon.

 

Nyantakyi, who is Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football and a member of the FIFA Council, has not commented on the allegations.

 

Similarly; football's world governing body, FIFA is yet to react to the decision to dissolve the Ghanaian FA and the alleged cash gift claims exposed in a documentary by Ghana’s celebrated undercover reporter Anas Aremayaw Anas.

 

This is because FIFA laws prevent government interference in football administration, and it had previously banned countries that breached the rules.
