Ghana ready to host 2015 Cup of Nations

Youth and Sports Minister Mahama Ayariga says Ghana is ready to host next year’s African Cup of Nations despite the threat of Ebola.
The original host, Morocco is asking CAF to postpone the tournament, failing which they would have no choice than to abandon the rights to host Africa’s biggest football extravaganza.
The North African country does not want to take any risk with Ebola.
At a press conference early Friday, South Africa says it will not host the tournament. On the contrary, Ghana says it is ready.
Sports Minister Mahama Ayariga said: “Ghana is ready to host the AFCON 2015.”
He said the ministry, working with the GFA, can organise a successful nations cup tournament next year.
But a section of Ghanaians are not in favour of government’s decision to host the tournament next year. The Ghana Medical Association is also said to have expressed concern about the prospect of having people in the country for over a month who may not exhibit symptoms at the time of entry but may be Ebola carriers.
