Breaking: Cameroon FA rejects Samuel Eto’o’s resignation as president: Samuel Eto’o’s resignation as the Cameroon Football Federation’s president has been rejected by the Executive Committee.
The federation stated that its executive committee met on Monday to discuss the national team’s performance at the Africa Cup of Nations in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon.
“At the end of discussions and subsequent deliberations, the members of the executive committee decided to maintain their current mandates and thus unanimously rejected the president’s resignation thereby renewing their confidence in him to continue with the same spirit of reconstruction and development of Cameroon football at all levels as envisaged in his plan adopted by the elective general assembly of Dec. 11, 2021,” the federation said in a statement, referring to the date Eto’o took over as president.
The five-time champion Cameroon needed to win their last group match to go to the next round, but they scored a late goal to make it happen. Nigeria eliminated them after a lackluster round of sixteen performance.
In their most recent group match, Eto’o, who celebrated with the team after their exciting victory over Gambia, has been the target of allegations of corruption in the previous year.
