The new FIFA standardisation committee appointed to direct French Cameroun football is made up of personalities with different profiles.
Dieudonné Happi is the Chief Executive Officer: Many know him as someone with ties to legendary footballer, Samuel Eto’o. Dieudonné Happi is a lawyer with the Cameroon Bar. He has been painted as an obstinate, wise and appreciated man. Born on the 26th of November 1956, he has been practising since 1985 after secondary and university studies in Cameroon and France. He is also known to have defended in 1991 in Maroua, the case of the former head of the presidential security of the deposed Chadian president, Hissein Habré. He also defended Colonel Etonde Ekotto as part of Operation Epervier.
Marcelle Denise Ambomo (Vice-Chair): She is the only woman on the team. She has been an advocate since November 1999 and has repeatedly advocated for fairness in the management of FECAFOOT. She holds a master’s degree and has been initiated into the Agence universitaire de la francophonie under the law of African cyberspace at the Gaston Berger University in Saint-Louis, Dakar.
Dr Abdou Oumarou (Member): He is a trained economist. He taught at the University of Yaoundé II. Aged 52, he is a graduate of the Higher School of Magistracy of Porto Novo in Benin. He also works in the Supreme Court Audit Chamber.
Kevin Djomo Kamdem (member): He is perhaps the best known of the team. And for good reason, the journalist worked for several years at the CRTV, the national radio and television station. He is a promoter of the Foot Ever Association and has supported journalists and supporters’ travel facilitation campaign for the last Confederations Cup in Russia.
