The first vice President of the Cameroon Football Federation, John Begheni Ndeh has lodged an appeal to the Fecafoot Electoral Commission calling for the rejection of Iya’s candidature.
The former Minister of Transport says Iya Mohammed does not fulfill the conditions of eligibility for the post of Fecafoot president.
He recalls the decision of the Supreme State Audit condemned Iya for managerial faults that led the Cotton Development Company to lose FCFA 9 billion.
Iya was slammed a special fine of FCFA 2million and suspended from managerial positions of a public enterprise for seven years.
Against this backdrop he says the candidacy of Iya Mohammed should be thrown out.
By dint of the decision of the State Audit Bench the appeal is in line with article 27 section 7 of the electoral code.
He also justifies his appeal with article 35 section 1 which states that “all candidates vying for the post of president or executive committee should be a Cameroonian enjoying his civil rights, who has attained maturity, residing in the country, not involved in financial mismanagement, and who management has not be found wanting.”
However, Iya’s adepts have been quick to counter that JB Ndeh is also involved in the “Albatross Affair” where fresh revelations indicate that JB is implicated in the affair.
