Cameroon FA Declines Samuel Eto’o’s Resignation as President

The executive committee of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) has made a significant decision regarding Samuel Eto’o’s resignation from his position as the association’s president.

Following a disappointing performance by Rigobert Song’s team in the last-16 of the AFCON tournament, Eto’o announced his resignation on Monday. This decision was prompted not only by the team’s underwhelming results but also by allegations of misconduct, match-fixing, and corruption surrounding Eto’o.

In a statement released by Fecafoot, it was disclosed that the executive committee convened on Monday, February 5, at the Yaounde Hilton Hotel to deliberate on various matters, with a focus on assessing the senior men’s national team’s performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations held in Ivory Coast.

During the meeting, Eto’o tendered his resignation to the members of the federal executive organ, urging them to follow suit in the spirit of accountability. However, after thorough discussions and deliberations, the executive committee unanimously rejected Eto’o’s resignation.

They expressed their continued confidence in his leadership and his commitment to the reconstruction and development of Cameroon football, as outlined in his plan adopted by the General Assembly in December 2021.

The decision to retain Eto’o as president despite the challenges facing the federation underscores the committee’s belief in his ability to lead the organization through turbulent times and steer it towards success.
