Samuel Eto'o elected president of Cameroon FA

Ex-international Samuel Eto’o was elected head of Cameroon’s FA on Saturday, and he’ll be in charge of football for the next four years.

Four-time African Footballer of the Year Seidou Mbombo Njoya, the fourth vice-president of the Confederation of African Football, lost to the four-time African Footballer of the Year.

On the morning of the election, five of the seven candidates who should have been running dropped out.

A lot of changes have been promised by Eto’o, who is 40 years old. They will help the sport grow.

“We have to bring footballers to the center of our policies,” he said afterward. “It is our role to ensure that those who play this discipline make a decent living out of it.”

“I’ve spoken to the business community and we’re certain we’ll get the right investors who can accompany us in fulfilling our goals,” Eto’o had said prior to the polls.

To’o’s candidacy attracted the attention of the public since the proceedings of the event were broadcast live on national television.

Cameroon’s FA (Fecafoot) will now be led by him when the country hosts the Africa Cup of Nations in January and February.

Former Cameroon internationals Maboang Kesack and Jules Denis Onana were two of the people who dropped out of the race on Saturday morning when they were still running.
