Tombi A Roko Sidiki President of FECAFOOT
The Management of the Cameroon Football Association(FECAFOOT) has asked its staff to quit ECOBANK and UBA, due to the crisis that has been plaguing both bodies for close to a year now.
Ecobank and UBA had freezed FECAFOOT'S accounts in application to the decisions of the Judges of the Conciliation and Arbitration Chamber of the National Olympic and Sports Committee of Cameroon, nullifying the electoral process that saw the election of Tombi Sidi A Roko as President of FECAFOOT.
After seeking judicial mediation to have the frozen accounts released for long, Tombi A Roko felt disappointed, as met with stiff resistance from the banks, who were afraid of the threats from FECAFOOT's government opposition.
Frustrated in all his failed attempt to get the situation resolved, Tombi A Roko on Friday February 10th 2017, decided in an internal note to FECAFOOT staff to break up all ties with the ECOBANK and UBA.
Despite this situation, FECAFOOT was still using the said banks to pay its staff, as well as its suppliers.
In the note signed by the Secretary General of FECAFOOT Blaise Moussa, the Cameroon Football Association informs its personnel about the situation between them and the said banks, and asked them to quit the two banks and go to other banks.
