It was the first time the members were stepping their feet in the premises since their appointment last Friday September 8, 2017
The newly appointed members of the FECAFOOT Normalisation Committee have taken up residence at the headquarters of the federation in Tsinga, a Yaounde neighbourhood. At the FECAFOOT headquarters yesterday Monday, September 11, 2017, the atmosphere was calm. Work was going on normally as the staff of the institution waited anxiously to receive the new team that will lead them for the next six months. As early as 9:00 a.m. the staff were already in their offices including those from attached structures to receive the normalisation team. Originally slated for 11:00 a.m. the team only arrived at about 11:30 a.m. Four out of the five appointed members were present. The only absentee, Kevin Njomo Kamdem, is out of the country for other duties. The President of the Normalisation Committee for FECAFOOT, Barrister Dieudonné Happi, in the company of Vice President, Barrister Marcelle Denise Ambomo, Dr. Abdou Oumarou and Maurice Samuel Bellet Edimo were received at the entrance by FECAFOOT officials lead by the Secretary General, Blaise Moussa. On arrival, Barrister Dieudonné Happi on behalf of his team asked for forgiveness from the staff of FECAFOOT for coming late.
After the warm reception the normalisation team went into the building for a working session with the FECAFOOT officials and then a visit to the structure. No interviews where granted to journalists who were waiting impatiently at the vicinity. It was a hectic day for the normalisation committee members as another meeting with the heads of the different departments was equally scheduled later in the afternoon. In a declaration, the President of the normalisation Committee, Barrister Dieudonné Happi called for collaboration between the team and the staff of FECAFOOT. He expressed hope that together they will find a solution to the present crisis rocking FECAFOOT.
