All those who though the FECAFOOT case in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) was over were all wrong!.
After a relative long lull, the battle for the control of the Cameroon Football Federation could soon resume. To believe Abdouraman Baba Hamadou, the author of the complaint filed five months ago in the CAS headquarters in Lausanne, “the proceedings at the CAS has returned to normal since May 19, 2016 after three months of blockade necessary to clarify some points of law … Let us be patient, there is no doubt that the law shall prevail … “.
Mr. Abdouraman disputes the legitimacy of Tombi A Roko elected nearly eight months ago at the helm of FECAFOOT. The process leading to the election was canceled by the conciliation and arbitration chamber of the National Olympic and Sports Committee of Cameroon. But with the support of the Government, Tombi A Roko continued to preside over the largest national sports association.
Outraged and convinced that Tombi and peers of the Executive Committee of FECAFOOT exercise in illegitimacy, Abdouramane brought the matter at the highest international sports court which has to decide ultimately. Its verdict will determine in the eyes of FIFA and other international partner organizations, the future of the office that Tombi leads.
