Abuja – The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has lifted its suspension of the Cameroonian Football Association (FECAFOOT), given that the conditions previously set have been met.
A statement on the Website of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Tuesday read that FIFA took the decision on Monday, July 22.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that FIFA had on July 4 suspended FECAFOOT with immediate effect over government’s interference.
In view of this, FIFA’s Emergency Committee had set up a normalisation committee, to revise the FECAFOOT statutes and organise elections for new officials by March 31, 2014
The statement added that the normalisation committee that was appointed has since resumed its duties at the FECAFOOT headquarters.
It added that FECAFOOT’s clubs, officials and other representatives can immediately resume their activities, which had been interrupted
“As requested by the FIFA Emergency Committee, the normalisation committee appointed on July 20, has taken up its duties on July, 22 at the FECAFOOT headquarters, with FIFA and CAF observers present.
“The lifting of the suspension means that FECAFOOT’s clubs, officials and other representatives can immediately resume their activities, which had been interrupted.
“The same applies for the resumption of the courses and various programmes provided by FIFA, CAF and other member associations.
“FIFA and CAF will continue to closely monitor the situation, particularly in relation to the revision of the FECAFOOT statutes,’’ the statement added. (NAN)
