Burkina Faso stunned Ghana 2-1 in the second leg of the last round of qualifiers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday, to book their tickets with a 4-3 aggregate.
However, the former Asante Kotoko manager insists he's not a quitter and will stay on to right the wrongs.
”It’s not the matter of quitting. I am not a quitter and not quitting is the best option," Konadu told the media.
"I have been with the team and working hard to get the best out of the team so losing doesn’t mean I should leave the job. I am still the coach and I think I don’t have to turn my back on Ghanaians.
"I am not a quitter, we will continue to put things in place and work hard for better results in the future,” he added.
Konadu was in charge when Ghana failed to qualify for the Chan in 2016 after losing to Cote d'Ivoire.
Goal understands that Kenya may not be able to host the tournament due to lack of facilities and Caf may give the hosting rights to Morocco.
