FECAFOOT Elections: North West delegates suffering threats over election choices

By Bakah Derick  North West Delegates to the 2021 elective general assembly of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) are said to be under serious threats.  Hilltopvoices has gathered that messages and pictures are currently circulating on social media messaging applications suggesting that North West delegates moved away from positions they were expected to stay unto.  While others are accusing the delegates for voting Samuel Eto'o the winner of the elections, others say they voted Seidou Mbombo Njoya.  Some of the messages Hilltopvoices has claim that the delegates from the North West received money to the tune of 1MFCFA from the the candidate they turned their backs to with a firm request for a refund.  On the eve of elections, Hilltopvoices must establish that the delagates could not be reached on phone. No justification of their unavailability has been made public but it is either their phones were jammed or collected. We cannot confirm who did.  We are gather

FECAFOOT Election voices in Bamenda: "...from the NW région, I fear Nothing drastic will change for us." Abongwa Fozo journalist and media promoter

I think change is good in any situation. Here we have change and hope that there will be a different approach as to how things are done.  As a lover of the game from the NW région, I fear Nothing  drastic will change for us. The under development of sporting infrastructures in the region is more of institutional bias against the region than an issue of individuals.  Whether it's Eto'o or Seidou, or somebody else, these issues may still continue.  I can't imagine that with 24 modern Stadia constructed in the country not a single one is constructed in the Northwest with four elite teams.  I am hoping for the best but I still have a lot of reservation on the treatment of the NW region

FECAFOOT Elections voices across Bamenda: "I am optimistic" Neba Jerome Sports Reporter

Samuel Eto'o's win as President of FECAFOOT to me represents a bright future for football stakeholders in the North West Region, For players and football lovers. When you look at his rich plan of action if implemented, the young boys who have been playing football with nothing to write home as finances are concerned will be able to make their families smiles. The investors will laugh whereas fans will be happy to go to the field. I believe Samuel Eto'o will market our local games by doing so, good infrastructures will be provided for us in the North West Region that has nothing to write home about that sector. To conclude, he knows everything about the difficulties these football stakeholders go through, and I am optimistic that within a year in office, his actions will start speaking

FECAFOOT Elections voices across Bamenda: "We will have an improved regional championship and divisional championship" Nji Nelson football writer

I think the victory of Samuel brings a completely new dimension to the way things will unfold not only in the region but the entire country. His victory brings a new impetus to our football. I am one of those who said from the beginning of this process that Samuel has a very juicy project for Cameroon's football and I believe with all the support he has at the beginning he is going to do something very significant for our football. With the right persons around him and if he implements his projects, we will enjoy football in this country. Therefore, we expect to see a new dynamism in the management of our football. In the North West region, our case is special because of the context we find ourselves with. From what I know, I am confident the North West will be one of the first to benefit from the stadiums promised by Eto'o. During a cocktail with some football stakeholders organized by the Regional President to celebrate the victory of Eto'o, the Re

FECAFFOT Election voices across Bamenda: "We have a football manager who is not coming to make money." Pierre Anoufack Journalist and Tourism promoter..

Eto'o's win for me represents hope in various aspects: Firstly at last a renouned footballer to manage football business at the helm. Therefore we count on his personality to engage into national and international partnership for the development of the discipline including sport infrastructure especially in the NW region that has been silent for so long. Secondly, We have a football manager who is not coming to make money. He already has enough and just need more honor added to what he acquired in the various stadia across the world. Therefore the numerous fallout from the federation will serve the football and not individuals. Thirdly,  Footballers finally have the opportunity to be recognized in their own country. The mobilization of almost all the former stars around the new president is clear indicator.

FECAFOOT Election voices across Bamenda: "Having a woman as 1st Vice President gives me hope.." Wanchia Cynthia Journalist

I maybe too quick with my assumption but Eto'os win already represents a befitting stadium for me, taking into consideration the Northwest has five teams at the level of the Professional league without a playing field. It also gives me hope looking at his campaign manifesto about a change in the management of football and careers of the main actors being footballers both at the local, national and international level. Having a woman as 1st Vice President gives me hope that women's football will take a new twist because Celine Eko knows better than anyone that our female championships deserve same attention given to the male championship in all aspects

FECAFOOT Election Voices in Bamenda: "The beginning of a new Dawn" Joe Dinga Promoter Bamenda FC

Beginning of a new Dawn where discrimination, incompetency, corruption, vindictiveness,  and hypocrisy will be thrown out of the door.

FECAFOOT Elections: North West in her pain joins nation to celebrate Samuel Eto'o

By Bakah Derick  The football community and more across Cameroon have been celebrating the election of Samuel Eto'o Fils as the new President of Cameroon's football governing body.  Pictures have been circulating on social media from across the country as the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) got the new leader on Saturday 11 December 2021 during the institution's general assembly in Yaounde.  Pictures have emerged from funeral receptions that turned to bigger parties following the announcement of Samuel's victory.   The North West football community is part of celebrations In drinking spots, joints and homes.

FECAFOOT Elections Day: North West goes the apposite way again as Samuel Eto'o wins

By Bakah Derick Delegates from the North West Regional league of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) have made another electoral mistake. They had opening declared their their support for incumbent Seidou Mbombo Njoya in a declaration signed by the league President.  North West delegates ahead of voting Following elections this Saturday 11 December 2021, Samuel Eto'o Fils got a convincing win of 43 to 31 votes against Seidou Mbombo Njoya.  Hilltopvoices has it on good authority that in December 2018, the North West delegation after a late night meeting settled for Joseph Antoine Bell. He will later be beaten by Seidou Mbombo Njoya one of the many reasons the region has been left in the dark in the last three years.  A crowd in one of halls during counting as tension mounted  We shall not waste your precious time with how much the North West delegation has gone too and fro on which candidate to back but the final decision announced in Garoua has gone

FECAFOOT Elections Day: North West delegates multiply meetings

By Bakah Derick The six delegates representing the regional league of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) at the institution's general assembly this Saturday 11 December 2021.  North West Delegate concerting Within the early hours of the day, they were hardly seen together. Prior to the resumption of deliberations, they meet this time six as they have been commissioned by the regional general assembly of Monday 1 November 2021.  They greeted us with a smile as they returned making it difficult to conclude on the state of their minds.  We are however humbled by the fact that Yoye Blaise one of the delegates is representing the region with pride.

FECAFOOT Elections: The headquarter is boiling

By Bakah Derick  It is a tension packed Mont Febe Hotel we arrived to this morning Saturday 11 December 2021. First the filtering and controlling of entrance into the hotel is a major attraction. Mixed Police,  Gerndarmes and special service officers are on duty. They all have lists of those accredited.  As I drove in, i am stopped twice. First control is soft. Introducing myself as a reporter was good to let me go. The second will not be the same. Three officers pulled out a list of accredited personalities and question which one is my name. I indicate and justify and then given the green light to go in. The hotel will then do it's traditional scan on my car before letting me in.  People are standing in clusters and camps. They are not necessarily delegates. Journalists, security and observers are here.  Booooom... it is Frank Happi and Abunde Pascal. The tune is high and jesticulations not comforting. I have the feeling someone was preventing the other from talking wi

FECAFOOT Elections: "I love Eto. He has been blessed to bless" Famous NW politician.

By Bakah Derick  A famous politician in the North West Region has expressed the wish to see Samuel Eto'o Fils take leadership of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT). In a  three page document titled ETO FILS IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THE FECAFOOT PRESIDENCY AS OF NOW, Dr. Nick Ngwanyam, MD is categorical about his position.  "That is why we have had so many scandals, several commissions to administer the crippling house driven by bad governance, corruption, no accountability and a sweet tooth for a soft life with nothing to show. This has been a good example of our collective failure in many other sectors of our nation. We have weevils that eat the corn from the inside."  He states  Here is the complete document 

FECAFOOT Elections: They are to decide the future of NW Football, What must be on the table

By Bakah Derrick  On Monday 1 November 2021, they received the mandate of the North West football family to represent the interest of the region as delegates to the elective general assembly (EGA) of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT).  Scheduled for Saturday 11 December 2021 in Yaounde, these six delegates do not only have the responsibility to elect a president for the Football Association (FA) but more so to elect a president who is willing and sufficiently capacitated to change the story of North West football and footballers.  With amazing talents and dedicated club owners, the North West has practically been left to struggle for her own in terms of professionalising her football environment even from far back when the region held the position of vice President at the FA. With the understanding that the new regional league leaders have a clear plan, the leader to be selected must be one who is intentional and ready to professionalise football in the country an
