Afcon Withdrawal: This is what Paul Biya must do

After the CAN 2019 organization was withdrawn from Cameroon, reactions have come from all over the place to pinpoint responsibilities for this failure. It is in this vein that the journalist Bruno Tagne took his pen to give his opinion.

Below is his reaction:

I can see that are taking short arms to the ministers and other collaborators of the President of the Republic as responsible for the withdrawal of the organization of CAN 2019 in Cameroon by the CAF.

"Cameroon will be ready on the day, I make the commitment," said Paul Biya in front of his hosts in ecstasy at the Unity Palace in Yaounde.

How can we make such a commitment urbi et orbi and never bother to even visit the sites once to make sure that things are going in the desired direction? Not even a visit to the Olembe Stadium just steps from Etoudi Palace. Stadium of the rest named after Paul Biya even before being built! Let me not be told that this is not the role of the head of state. Others do it and it works.

Paul Biya is guilty, as for other things, of being satisfied with the reports, of not having from the top of his function kicked the bureaucracy which has slowed considerably the works and especially of having closed the eyes in front of people who had decided to make this Can the biggest cash cow of their life. And it is not the alerts that have failed.

Want, now that the failure is consumed and that Cameroon is humiliated, discard - as always - on employees or point to a pseudo "mafia" "that there would be the CAF is pure diversion. It's even irresponsibility.

Cameroonians have not elected ministers but a head of state who must take responsibility. Do your homework sir.
