The CAF Executive Committee meeting held on Thursday in Egypt  unanimously agreed to allow Ghana to host the upcoming Africa Women Cup of Nations tournament quashing earlier reports that they were to be stripped off the hosting rights.
 
 
In the meeting, the executives sort to help the appointed four-member Normalisation Committee to ensure the success of the tournament instead of punishing the country.
 
“Ghana will host the 2018 AWCON. We discussed the importance of CAF giving them support instead of punishing them because the country has gone through some trying times in the past few months” the Source told Soka25east.com
 
“It was decided the Formalization Committee will be given full support to ensure they achieve their mandate and help them get the AWCON ready in time instead of stripping them off the rights as earlier envisaged”
 
Dr Kofi Amoah, who was the CAF/FIFA liaison team head leads the  four-member Normalisation Committee to run Ghana Football for the next six months .
 
He will be deputized by former Airtel Chief Executive Officer Lucy Quist.
 
Other members on the committee are Lawyer Duah Adonten, a former Kotoko Board member with Naa Odofoley Nortey completing the list.
 
The official mascot, song and website for the tournament will be unveiled by the Local Organising Committee (LOC).
 
The 2018 Africa Women Championship will kickoff on 17th November to December 1.
