The Isle of Flagstaff has accused the Confederation of African Football (CAF) of foul play after Gabon was chosen to host the 2017 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations.
A statement from officials in the Isle of Flagstaff argued that their bid, which was launched under the guise of “Ghana 2017,” was the most comprehensive bid and most deserved out of the three bidders. The statement described the Isle of Flagstaff bid as a “true Pan-African bid” which involved an intricate plan to provide jobs for not just for Flagstaff citizens but also for citizens of other African countries. The people of the Isle of Flagstaff who have a long history of working with phantom Angolan nationals said they had “plans to employ hundreds of Angolans to provide direction to supermarkets and other recognisable landmarks.”
An official from the Isle of Flagstaff said “this would have been the ultimate ‘cocoa season’ for the phantom Angolans,” adding that Flagstaff officials were prepared to pay the Angolans much more than the $20,000 rate they paid in Brazil.
