Mr. Konan Julien and Freddy Marius Tchibozo, representing the World Skate body as General Secretary and Treasurer respectively maintained that World Skate Africa had over 30 African countries who are ready to express their desire to affiliate to USCA/AASC. They said they tried to join in 2016 but were unsuccessful.

President of USCA/AASC, Gen Ahmed Nasser M.K. Mohammed impressed on World Skate Africa to prepare and re- submit new documents to their outfit since there has been changes in requirements since 2016.

He admonished the leadership of World Skate Africa to have periodic engagement with USCA AASC and be willing to abide by the constitutional provisions of the body when all goes well.

The World Skate Africa representatives informed General Nasser on their last General Assembly in 2022 and provided information on the preparedness of skateboarding towards the Paris Olympics this year.

Mr. Nasser assured World Skate Africa of their readiness to assist to develop Roller Sports through the African Games and the Olympic Games.
