Cameroon football has been in turmoil for a few days now. Disappointment had already spread in the country’s football arena after being eliminated from the last sixteen of the Africa Cup of Nations. Added to this are allegations of corruption, misconduct and match-fixing against the president of the Cameroon Football Federation and legendary footballer Samuel Eto’o.

Due to these complaints, Ito decided to resign from the post of the Federation President. However, his resignation proposal was rejected by the executive committee of the federation.

In a meeting of the executive committee of the federation on Monday night, Ito announced his resignation from the post of president. At this time, he urged the rest of the board members to resign. However, in a statement, the federation’s executive committee said it had “unanimously rejected” Eto’o’s resignation offer. They also called for ‘reinstatement of confidence’ in Eto’o to carry on with responsibility. In December 2021, Eto’o was elected president of the Cameroon Football Federation.

The meeting of the Cameroon Football Federation was called mainly to assess their performance in the Africa Cup of Nations. Cameroon won only one of four matches in this competition. And in the last sixteen, they lost 2-0 against Nigeria.

A number of accusations against Eto’o surfaced before his failure to reach the stage of continental excellence. Where it is said that this former Barcelona star has created a mountain of irregularities after becoming the president of the country’s football federation. Serious allegations of involvement in match-fixing, spreading false information, threatening, inciting acts of violence and abuse of power surfaced against him.

According to the sports-based media The Athletic, the allegations against Eto’o were sent to FIFA’s ethics committee in the form of documents by the former vice-president of the federation, Henry Nzalla Quan Jr. And before sending this document to FIFA, the governing body for football in Africa (CAF) investigated and verified it.

According to Athletic news, the organization has found the truth of the allegations against Eto’o. Earlier, in September last year, CAF called on FIFA to remove Eto’o from the Cameroon Football Federation. However, Ito could not take Nzalla’s work for granted. He even sent threatening messages to the former vice president.

Where it was written, ‘I am the mafia of this revolution and here we do not betray our leaders. So far I have been protecting the interests of this campaign. And if you do something stupid with me, you will suffer the consequences.

Under pressure, Ito now has to walk a different path. He even decided to resign. Now it remains to be seen if this incident eventually leads to any more drama or not.
