One of the candidates for next weekend’s elections into the Cameroon Football Federation-FECAFOOT, Jules Denis Onana says he is holding firm to his plans of contesting as frontline candidate for the forthcoming election in the Cameroonian FA despite calls to withdraw from the race.
In a letter dated Tuesday December 7, 2021, the former Cameroon Indomitable Lion star said he recognize the efforts of those calling for his withdrawal, the Cameroon National Footballers’ Syndicate, SYNAFOC, who he says are trying to ensure the best candidate is chosen from the syndicate to seat for the said elections but announced he will hold tight to his set goals of becoming the next president of the FA.
“I recognize the initiative put in place by the Cameroon National Footballers’ Syndicate (SYNAFOC) to unite the candidacies of former footballers for the FECAFOOT elections.” Denis Onana partly wrote.
“I share the wish to see our football being reformed via a new era, by considering the interest of football, footballers and footballers before everything else.
That is the reason why I will want to maintain this project till the end.
I wish that our delegates will vote candidates who will honor our football.” Denis Onana concluded.
Jules Denis Onana’s letter comes a day after SYNAFOC members including fellow presidential candidates, Samuel Eto’o and Emmanuel Kessack Maboang and former Indomitable Lions stars, Rigobert Song and Geremi Sorel Njitap met to form a coalition for the election.
After meeting at the syndicate’s headquarters in Douala yesterday, members of the group agreed to throw their weights behind former Indomitable Lions captain, Samuel Eto’o Fils, urging Denis Onana who is part of the structure to do same.
The election of the new president of the Cameroon football federation will be taking place on Saturday December 11, 2021.
Candidates in the race include interim president Seidou Mbombo Njoya who late last week, announced he has received the backings of delegates of six of Cameroon’s ten regions and four time African Player of the Year and two time AFCON winner, Samuel Eto’o who already has the backing of two of the original 7 candidates for the FECAFOOT top job.
