CAF has already moved the African Cup from six countries, Cameroon is no exception.

The African Football Confederation (CAF) has decided to withdraw the 2019 African Nations Cup from Cameroon for the seventh time in three decades, from which the tournament is being transferred from one country to another for various reasons.
The start was in 1988 when Morocco won the honor of hosting the African Cup of Nations for the first time in its history and the last so far, after the CAF decided to withdraw the competition from Zambia.

South Africa is the biggest beneficiary of the African Cup of Nations transfer from one country to another, having already organized the competition on two occasions, after compensating Kenya in 1996 and 2013 Libya.
The tournament was held in 2000 between Ghana and Nigeria instead of Zimbabwe, and in 2015 replaced Equatorial Guinea instead of Morocco, which apologized for hosting the 30th edition of the outbreak of the Ebola virus at the time.
In 2017, Gabon compensated Libya after Al-Kaf decided to withdraw the right of hosting from the latter because of the security situation in the country.
After withdrawing the 2019 version of Cameroon because of its lack of readiness, Morocco, South Africa and perhaps even Egypt are expected to compete for the continental tournament, but logically Morocco remains the leading candidate for the honor of organizing the finals by virtue of its stadiums and security stability. The tournament took place on two occasions, in 2013 and Egypt on four occasions, a record (with Ghana). Morocco won the honor once, in 1988, and Cameroon was crowned by Nigeria
