FIFA Extends Cameroon Normalization Committee’s Mandate
FIFA has extended the mandate of the Normalisation Committee of the Cameroon Football Federation till December 2018.
Football world governing body, FIFA, has extended the mandate of the Normalisation Committee of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) till December 16, 2018.
The latest development is contained in a communication signed by FIFA secretary general Fatima Samoura and addressed to the Normalization Committee through its chairman Barrister Duiedonne Happi.
This comes after following a request by the Minister of Sports and Physical Education, Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt, which he sent to Zurich on August 28, requesting for additional time because the elections of the new Fecafoot office bearers fell on during the same period of the presidential election in the central African country.
It is the third time FIFA is extending the Committee’s mandate since it took over the affairs of Cameroon football a year ago.
The first term of the committee ended on February 28 but was extended under unmentioned circumstances for a further six months following an evaluation of the Normalization Committee’s performance by FIFA.
However, this time around, the football world governing body explained that it has reached to the decision in order to give the Normalization Committee enough time to adopt the texts and organized fresh elections into the country’s football house before the new extension date.
It should be noted that Cameroon’s parliament only adopted new law, during last parliamentary session, regulating sports activities in the country before any election can take place in the country.
