The infrastructure will cost about 250 million CFA Francs.
The town of Kousseri in the Far North Region of Cameroon is one of the cities that will house a sports center. The signing of an agreement between the National Olympic and Sports Committee of Cameroon (CNOSC) and the International Foundation Olympafrica, the company responsible for executing the work, took place on 10 June in Yaounde.
The infrastructure cost is estimated at about 250 million CFA Francs. Kamsouloum Abba Kabi, the Chairperson of Olympafrica Centre Management Committee of Kousseri, said he will ensure the execution of work.
The government newspaper Cameroon Tribune of June 13, 2016 relates that Kalkaba Hamad Malboum, President of CNOSC “welcomed the materialization of this project.” He also “praised the importance of sport to promote peace and hope.” For him, this infrastructure will enable young people of Kousseri to practice a healthy way of sport, given the security situation in the Region.
A project of the same scale was presented on June 4 to Bernard Obama, the Regional Delegate of Sports and Physical Education of the Centre. The Bokito subdivision in the Mbam & Inoubou (Central Region) will also host a sports center. The government newspaper of June 6 revealed that local residents had expressed their joy by making a donation of land in Al-Madinah Sports Academyun which initiated the project in that area of the country.
