Cameroon Sports and Physical Education Minister, Bidoung Mkpatt has reiterated that government is ready to provide solutions to eventual misgivings and remarks the African Football Confederation, CAF Expert may pronounce in the validation of the 20,000 capacity stadium in Bafoussam in the western region of Cameroon.
CAF Expert, Malian Souleymane Magassouba was in Cameroon to inspect the stadium for certification over the week-end and sat through its inauguration.
“Whatever the eventual remarks and reservations pronounced, be assured that government would provide efficient and satisfactory solutions in real time for the validation of the stadium in line with engagements taken to honourably host the 2016 African Women Championship and the 2019 African Nations Cup”, the Sports Minister said.
The stadium was inaugurated with two exhibition games, Cameroon U-17 women’s national team against a local selection and U-20 national team that featured former Cameroon international Geremi Sorel Ngitap in the second half.
“I wish during my days we had this type of stadium, I am so overwhelmed I had to lace my boots for the game and for the fact that the stadium is constructed in my village”, Njitap said.
Cameroon’s Infrastructural development programme is underway with the construction of other modern stadia of international standards.
