One day to the end of a six month term of office given to the Normalisation Committee at FECAFOOT, a FIFA delegation comes to Cameroon to evaluate work done so far.
Set up on 27th August 2017, the five-man committee was given a number of assignment some included;
1. To draft a new statutes in consultation with all stakeholders and in compliance with FIFA’s Statutes and standards
2. To organise and conduct elections of a new FECAFOOT executive committee.
3. To run the daily affairs of the FECAFOOT.
One day to the end of the six months timeline given to the committee, very little seem to have been realised.
The FIFA delegates have been meeting with football stakeholders and officials of the Ministry of Sports and Physical Education since the early hours of this Tuesday 27th 2018.
At this point of discussion every one is anxious to know what awaits the committee.
Will the Normalisation Committee be given another opportunity to do the unfinished job?
This and many others questions will be answered during a press conference organised by the FIFA team at the end of their sojourn this Tuesday 27th February 2018.
The Normalisation Committee at FECAFOOT was created on 27th August 2017 to put an end to tussle within the Cameroon Football Federation,FECAFOOT.
After the six months term of office, a good number of football analysts in Cameroon have mixed feelings about the Normalisation Committee.
Innitially lauded for being a neutral force that has been set up to right the managerial wrongs of FECAFOOT, many think the Committee is a toothless bulldog, pointing to the difficulties encountered in rendering football a re-unifying factor in the country.
-It has not been able to organise elections in FECAFOOT
-The Indomitable Lions has no head Coach, better still, the status of HUGO BROOS is very ambigous.
-The Secretary General at FECAFOOT has been fired
-The transfer of personnel from the Federation to other services has been described as arbitrarily done.
