Who would benefit from a 2nd slide of the CAN?The participation of the Cameroonian and African populations in a football festival, that of the CAN 2021 in Cameroon in particular, must not be transformed into an object of blackmail of any kind against our country.
Cameroon loves football. Our country by its football pedigree, has undisputed degrees of erudition in football, despite its under-performances of the last 15 years…
But our Nation it must be said and to those who decide this sport and our own compatriots in love with football, is above EVERYTHING and especially above the pleasures of games… He can live without football in case of imperative necessity. If this much-loved sport, to which we recognize its value of awakening national sentiment, becomes an instrument of blackmail to weaken the state or even destabilize it, it could very well take a vacation without national life stopping.
When Cameroon organized the first African Cup of Nations in 1972, its most beautiful infrastructure was reduced to the "reunification stadium" in Duala, the "Ahmadou Ahidjo omnisport stadium" in Yaoundé, the "Garoua stadium". There was also the "Bafoussam Stadium". Matches were even played at the tiny military stadium.
Where does it come from that we torture our country for a football affair…
The same country, Cameroon, in 2022, has built stadiums 20 times more modern in addition to those that had already hosted this cup and that less than 3 countries can present on the African Continent, in order to give this CAN the global dimension it deserves.
It emerges despite this very heavy investment of our country and a strong expectation of our population to welcome it, an ode of conspiracy or a strange hatred, against my country since our illustrious compatriot in this field, Mr. ISSA Hayatou, a monument of African football, was ousted from his chair of president of CAF by another son of Africa the Malagasy Hamad.
Everyone knows where their winner ended their race in this short-lived adventure. There are clues that present curiosities where it would also be found black Cameroonian hands to oust him. He left this chair with sport and dignity, unlike his successor who left without honor, mired in unprecedented corruption. After being received on the red carpet at our <palais de="" l="" unité="">> by the Head of State, whom he reassured to respect the agenda of 2019, He will have had no scruples to threaten to withdraw this CAN to our country in favor of Côte d'Ivoire, which until this date and despite the great esteem that I have for this beautiful brotherly country, cannot present the similar level of the current standard of football infrastructure offered by Cameroon at this CAN 2021 for the influence of our Continent.</palais>
The question of the costs of these infrastructures and that of compliance with the specifications prescribed by the Head of State in terms of quality / price is and remains a matter of internal audit or even the internal judicial order unlikely to block the offer of beautiful frames and playgrounds with an international dimension to this competition.
Fecafoot does not displease, under IYA Mohamed, has never again produced results in terms of success of our pennant teams since its fall and incarceration for financial crimes cases at Sodecoton.
We must therefore conclude without convolutions that IYA Mohamed for football has proven that his management produces results of course with the winning spirit impulse by President Paul BIYA and despite the disappearance of the bonus cases of the result between two aircraft.
After the first blackmail that threw the eye on the credibility of our country and on the presidential word we experienced [the slide] for 2022. One could believe the steepnesses finished.
Cameroon has just experienced a thrilling election at Fecafoot after tumults of the post-IYA Mohamed period. One of the best former footballers of our country and even of our Continent, Samuel Eto'o Fils, is brilliantly elected President of this national apex body. A hope that will make it possible to judge the masons at the foot of the walls the trowel no longer at the feet but now by hand and in the head.
Cameroon has therefore braved all the pitfalls on its way to organize a beautiful continental festival
And pan! A new blackmail. It is too much. The Europeans threaten not to release the players of our teams who make their riches, first because of the calendar, they prefer that the CAN 2021 is played in summer, and then because of Covid19 and its different variants, and finally for security…
The crowning achievement of all this is the blackmail of the vaccine to enter our own stadiums. We are therefore forced to accept a vaccine that is supposed to protect us. And this obligation is not observed on any stadium in the West and is not provided for by any legislation and in any case not in Cameroon.
No gentlemen, Cameroonians and Africans who want to see the matches in world-class stadiums have no obligation as in your countries to be vaccinated because you are exerting a new blackmail on my country to postpone the CAN 2021.My country does not have to be blackmailed for the CAN.
This measure was not imposed on the U.S. Cup held last week.
Why then in Cameroon only, to harm Paul BIYA or to forcibly inoculate a vaccine that has not closed with Covidgate pending?
