Cameroon FA Secretary General Resigns

The Secretary-General of the Cameroon Football Association (Fecafoot), Benjamin Didier Banlock, has resigned from his post, becoming the first senior figure to do so since federation boss Samuel Eto’o took power in December.

Banlock has reportedly fallen out with his boss whom he accused of instituting a one-man management style at the helm of the federation since taking over the federation five months ago.

“The recent successive events, distractions have been multiplying and it shows without doubt that the Cameroon Football Federation is not in synergy with the project that brought you at the helm of the body,” the former scribe wrote to Eto’o.

“For not being able to work in an environment which meets up to these levels of performance to give Cameroon football all the greatness it deserves, it is my place to thank you as well as the executive committee of Fecafoot for the confidence bestowed on me and which I have decided to renounce,” Banlock wrote.

Although the resignation definitely came as a surprise to many football fans, many will not deny that Banlock had on more than one occasion hinted that he might step down earlier than expected. As secretary general and due to his strong background in finance, Banlock was in charge of Fecafoot’s purse.

Banlock was first appointed as secretary general of Fecafoot by Dieudonné Happi who is the former president of the Normalisation Committee.

He took over the reins during the Seidou Mbombo Njoya tenure and re-joined Fecafoot under the leadership of Samuel Eto’o at the end of an Emergency Committee meeting held on December 27, 2021.
