Yaounde: Issa Hayatou takes first golf trip since becoming Chairman of ANAFOOT 0

The new Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Football Academy was received on May 26, 2017 at the Cameroonian Golf Federation. With age telling on him, Issa Hayatou had a radiant face. Dressed in a blue boubou accompanied by a samara slipper, the new chairman of the board of the National Football Academy (ANAFOOT), arrived at the headquarters of the Cameroonian Golf Federation around 11:30 in a posh car and was welcomed by Yves Martin Assiga Ahanda, the boss of the Cameroon Golf Federation.

After a brief head-to-head meeting with his host, the former president of the Confederation of African Football was given a guided tour of the FECAGolf headquarters. A gesture appreciated by Issa Hayatou who did not fail to highlight it. “I am pleasantly surprised to see the seat of this federation. I was far from imagining that there are so many efforts around golf. This is an opportunity for me to congratulate the leaders of this sport something enviable not only in Cameroon but in the African continent, “said Issa Hayatou.

For his part, the president of the Cameroon Golf Federation said that “President Hayatou is one of the greatest African leaders of all time. He has just been honored by the President of the Republic who appointed him as ANAFOOT’s Board Chairman. It is therefore an honour to our federation to host such a great leader. It’s a way for us to look for experience, not just for football, but for sport in general.”
