Tiko Council in the Southwest region of Cameroon has expressed the willingness to take over the 2008/2009 Elite 1 champions, Tiko United FC, Mayor Moukondo has reveal.

Mayor Moukondo Daniel Ngande was speaking during the final of the Tiko Council Interquarter competition that took place recently at the Horlforth field in Tiko.

Hear him: “We have plans with Tiko United FC. Football is managed by people; the executive manages the club for now. However, we have told the management that if they have difficulties, they should come to us.   So that a bigger hand (Tiko Council) can take over the team. The Tiko Council is ready to take over the team for sponsorship so that we can manage it in a better way and make it go the height that it was in the yesteryears.”

Tiko United FC founded in the early 1960s as CDC Tiko and managed by the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC), saw its name later changed to Tiko United FC when the company relinquished sponsorship. The Samba Boys won the Cameroon top tie in 2009 and has taken part at CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

The Samba Boys in 2014 were relegated into the amateur league and since then, the club has failed to shine.

Meanwhile, the final of the Tiko Council Interquarters competition saw Colombie FC of New Quarters edged Boca Junior FC of Down Beach 2-1 thanks to a late strike from Nomen Felix Mbia. The winner of the final went home with FCFA 400,000 and other prizes.

Speaking after the final, the Mayor said he was satisfied with the success recorded so far by the football jamboree.

“It is not easy to galvanize the population I saw today at the final of the 20019 edition of the competition. We had close to 8000 people coming from all the nooks and crannies of the municipality with some coming out of the Municipality,” Tiko Mayor averred.

Other activities ending holiday activities at the Tiko Municipality organized by the council include the planting of 400 trees and also the paying of students who did holiday jobs at the council. With the “little money” given to these students, the Mayor urged them to use it well by buying their school needs as they go back to school.

The Tiko Council was voted by FIECOM recently as the best Council in the Southwest Region and also the third-best council in Cameroon.
