We have already started getting requests from the Confederation of African Athletics to bid for the 2026 African Athletics Championships.

When they came, what they saw, I was told that for the last 20 years, they’ve never seen any organization like this before.

We did three official course. And the last one, we had 110, all of them passed.

We have a lot of officials.

We have a lot of equipment.

We have three sets of equipment.

Since its establishment in 1979, Ghana has never had the opportunity to host the African Athletics Championship, with Nigeria being the host country twice, in 1989 and 2018.

This year, Cameroon will take the reins as the host nation, with the event set to be held at the Olembe Stadium.

Organized by the Confederation of African Athletics, the African Championships in Athletics is a prominent continental athletics event.

Initially, it was held intermittently, with nine editions taking place within fourteen years until 1993.
