With two of the six qualifying rounds played, CAF deemed it possible given the current situation to have the remaining qualification phase and have the biennial tournament in January next year. CHAN is a tournament that features only locally based players. "Cameroon is ready to host either competition and are within schedule", Ahmad said.
"Health is our number one priority". The target is contained in Rohr's new two-and-a-half-year contract.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is set to decide the fate of its competitions when executives hold an online meeting today.
In a separate decision, CAF cancelled the 2020 Women's Africa Cup of Nations due to "challenging conditions" and will instead launch a Women's Champions League in 2021.
Despite the change in the date of Afcon, host country, Cameroon still retains the rights to stage the tournament.
The move means that defending Premier League champions Liverpool will play all of next season without losing their key strike force of Senegal's Sadio Mane and Egypt's Mohamed Salah to global duty.
"I can understand this decision - we have more time now to prepare our young boys".
The U-17 and U-20 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers will be on a zonal basis, while the U-17 AFCON takes place in July 2021.
Other CAF special events including its star-studded awards ceremony, featuring the likes of Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, have also been cancelled.
This could be seen as an appeal to the dampening spirits of women's football stakeholders and fans following the disappointing news of the 2020 Awcon cancellation.
It also opens the door for Africa to take part in the inaugural Fifa Women's Club World Cup, as confirmed by Fifa president Gianni Infantino, in the coming years as part of his future plans for women's football.
