With numerous control missions on the field and a level – headed diplomatic approach with CAF, Cameroon succeeded in organising a competition which has become a reference in the African game.
And the Joseph Dion Ngute government has had to deal with these issues while at the same time prusing its mission of promoting social cohésion and economic development in the country.
