Guinea’s hosting rights for the event would not be taken away from the West African nation, according to CAF, despite Amaju Pinnick, the head of Nigeria’s football federation, having hinted earlier this month that CAF was likely to do so.

In addition, Pinnick had stated that should CAF deduct Guinea from the tournament, Nigeria and the neighbouring Benin Republic were preparing a combined bid.

Guinea was originally scheduled to host the tournament in 2023, but this was pushed back by two years when the list of organizing nations was reshuffled in 2018.

“The Executive Committee was unanimous that Guinea will not be ready to host the competition,” a CAF report read.

“The Executive Committee took a unanimous decision based on the report as submitted that the tournament be withdrawn from Guinea. The President suggested that a delegation be sent to Guinea to inform them of the decision taken by EXCO.JAMB Result

“Resolution: The Executive Committee resolved to send a delegation to Guinea to inform them of CAF’s decision to withdraw the Africa Cup of Nations Guinea 2025 from Guinea,” CAF noted in a release made available to the media.
