The Cameroon Football Federation Executive Committee has rejected the resignation of its president, Samuel Eto’o.
Eto’o had submitted his resignation following the exit of the Cameroonian national team from the ongoing All African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Ivory Coast.
The Federation executive committee met on Monday in Yaoundé, the country’s capital where the team’s performance at the tournament was x-rayed.
During the meeting, the former Barcelona legend agreed to step down while urging other members “to do likewise in good faith.”

A statement by the federation said: “At the end of discussions and subsequent deliberations, the members of the executive committee decided to maintain their current mandates and thus unanimously rejected the President’s resignation, thereby renewing their confidence in him to continue with the same spirit of reconstruction and development of Cameroon football at all levels as envisaged in his plan adopted by the elective general assembly of Dec. 11, 2021.”
The four-time Africa Player of the Year’s time as Federation President has been marred by match-fixing charges, illegal conduct, and corruption.
