The executive committee of the Cameroon Football Federation on Monday rejected the resignation tendered by its president, Samuel Eto’o.
Eto’o has been dogged by allegations of improper conduct, match-fixing and corruption.
The federation met to evaluate the Indomitable Lions’ outing at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The meeting started with Eto’o offering to resign from the role and also invited the other members “to do likewise in good faith.”
“At the end of discussions and subsequent deliberations, the members of the executive committee decided to maintain their current mandates and thus unanimously rejected the president’s resignation thereby renewing their confidence in him to continue with the same spirit of reconstruction and development of Cameroon football at all levels as envisaged in his plan adopted by the elective general assembly of Dec. 11, 2021,” the federation said in a statement, referring to the date Eto’o took over as president.
There was no mention of head coach Rigobert Song’s future.
Cameroon needed a win in its final group fixture to qualify from the group stage, only to be eliminated by Nigeria in the round of 16.
