« … the fight for the safeguard of the interests of Cameroonian football that I lead in the company of the actors of this football from all regions of Cameroon, has nothing to do with ethnicity and tribe »
So that no one ignores it!
I present below my letter of resignation from the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) dated June 22, 2011, so a little over eleven years ago.
FECAFOOT was then led by a “northerner”, Mr. Iya Mohammed.
For those who do not know, Mr. Iya Mohammed is the founding father of modern FECAFOOT, the one who made FECAFOOT a credible institution.
Under his presidency, FECAFOOT moved from nothingness to the peaks.
It provided FECAFOOT with an administration, a budget and an accounting and financial procedure manual. FECAFOOT’s budget had gone from zero to more than 5 billion CFA francs for certain years…
Under the presidency of Mr. Iya Mohammed, Cameroon notably won two CANs (2000 and 2002), the gold medal at the Olympic Games (Sydney 2000) and was the first and only African country, to date, to play in the final of a major FIFA competition (Confederations Cup 2003 in France).
For nearly 10 years, in terms of football, Cameroon was first in everything on the African continent, to the point where FIFA sought our opinion on all the reforms it wanted to introduce in Africa.
It is therefore an honor and a great pride to have participated in this great adventure, first as Head of the « e-FIFA Progam » project, then as Head of the Communication Department of FECAFOOT and sometimes in the foreground, in as head of the federal administration and Director of the Cabinet of the President of FECAFOOT. But that didn’t stop me from disagreeing when necessary and resigning when it came to me.
All this reminder to say to this « minister » and to those who behave like him, that the fight for the safeguard of the interests of Cameroonian football that I lead in the company of the actors of this football from all the regions of Cameroon, does not has nothing to do with ethnicity and tribe.
All my greetings to all those who, despite everything, remained in a republican spirit.
