FECAFOOT Election: Nyamsi pull out to support Samuel Eto’o

By Beng Emmanuel

Jean Crepin Soter Nyamsi has officially pulled out of the race to become the next president of the Cameroon Football Federation, Fecafoot to support the candidacy of Samuel Eto’o barely 24 hours to the elections

His decision was announced in Yaounde on Wednesday December 9, during a press conference which was attended by Eto’o. Nyamsi said “I know the candidates I am supporting will win the Elections”. 

The University lecturer becomes the latest candidate to throw his support to the former Inter Milan and Barcelona Star after similar moves from Emmanuel Maboang Kessack and Justin Tagouh who have united their forces. 

The coalition means only four candidates are left in the race for the top job at the Cameroon Football Federation to be decided on December 11. Samuel Eto’o is now backed by three candidates. He will challenge incumbent Seidou Mbombo Njoya, Jules Denis Onana and Zacharie Wandja.

Prior to Saturday’s polls Seidou Mbombo Njoya who is hoping to retain the top seat, has received support from delegates of six regions including the Centre, North West and West. 

Jules Denis Onana on his part says he is determined to run for the president of the Cameroon FA despite calls for him to withdraw and join the coalition. 

The former Cameroonian international made the remark after another presidential candidate and his 1990 team mate Maboang Kessack pulled out of the race to support the candidacy of Samuel Eto’o. Zacharie Wandja is still undecided.
