Seraglio: Paul Biya annoyed by the insubordination of Bidoung Mkpatt


While the presidency of the Republic demand the postponement of the election to the FECAFOOT due to presidential polls, the Minister of Sports, in disobeying a presidential instruction, chooses his men for the control of the apex body of football.

The Presidency of the Republic is beginning to show signs of annoyance about the agitation of the Minister of Sports and Physical Education.

Concerned by the security situation in the English-speaking areas and the organization of the presidential election, the state summit does not intend to create a protest front a few days before the presidential election on 7 October. With this, it will be asked the boss of Sports to seize the International Federation of Football Association (Fifa) to extend the mandate of the standardization committee.

The instruction that emanates from the summit of the State comes a few days after the standardization committee sent the Minister of Sports the timetable for the organization of elections of the leaders of the federal authority. Me Happi responded to an order of Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt.

But, the secretariat general of the presidency of the Republic, already in bis with Minsep, will temper the ardor of each other, asking the postponement of the election so that there is no overlap with the electoral calendar of the state. The Minister of Sports will bow to this instruction, but will not do exactly that. He will bring together the former indomitable Lions to talk about their contribution to the successful organization of the 2019 Can.

After this meeting, he will take the opportunity to entrust a mission to Gerémi Sorel Njitap in Switzerland, at the headquarters of Fifa. He must meet Gianni Infantino, the President of FIFA, to convince him to place, at the request of the Cameroonian government, a temporary management committee at the head of FECAFOOT. This committee should be chaired by ... Gerémi Sorel Njitap. A mission that will fill the former midfielder of the national team of Cameroon. An attitude of insubordination that betrays the zeal of this member of the government as to the control of the Fecafoot and incidentally, the national team.

This man who still has the throat snub at the choice of the coaching Indomitable Lions, wants to have an eye on the whole Cameroonian football and does not taste much of the injunctions of the Presidency of the Republic in this file.

If the designation of former players of the national team to the federation is greeted by many people in football circles, remains that the maneuver Bidoung Mkpatt looks like a circle. Both the concerned are not aware of his real plans. Thus taken to dub a unilateral step without the knowledge of their own free will, the old Lions would help create a problem by trying to solve another.
