Camerounians looking to seing the président on the day of finals

Citizen of all works of life had their eyes wide shot on the 16th of January 2021, to see the President of the Republic Paul Biya preside over the opening ceremony, of the Africa Nations Championship known as CHAN, after the tournament initially scheduled to take place in June 2020 was postponed due to the corona virus outbreak.


To the greatest dismay of many, the head of state who received in audience Gianni Infantino, the president of the world football governing body FIFA at the unity palace on the eve of the event, was not available at the Yaounde Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium for the opening match between Cameroon and Zimbabwe. Rather, he was represented by the Prime Minister and Head of Government Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute.


The absence of the president of the Republic Paul Biya, during the opening ceremony of the sixth edition of the African Nations Championship, that brings together 16 African national teams into the country to increase and warn the football atmosphere, despite the presence of his guest Gianni Infantino, the president of the world football governing body FIFA at the stadium on that day, is urging pundits to wonder aloud.


The sixth edition of the African Nations Championship could have been an opportunity that the Head of State Paul Biya, would have used to express his joy of his country hosting a continental competition like CHAN after the hosting of the Africa Nations Cup competition in 2019, was rolled out of Cameroons favour and handed over to Egypt by showing. Ngwa Vincent pointed out.


According to Takam Rodolf, there is no gainsaying that, the absence of the President of the Republic Paul Biya, at the opening ceremony of CHAN taking place in the country from the 16th of January to the 7th of February, is probably an indication that Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute the Prime Minister and Head of Government might be the one to preside over the finals in the month of February.


As the competition is drawing closer to an end daily, the eyes of Cameroonians are up looking to see their president present at the Amadou Ahidjo omnisport stadium on the day of the finals.
