Refurbishing will focus on repainting of the structure, and the renewal of electrical installations at the residence.
According to sources, the project will last three months beginning from September 13 this year when applications will be closed.

The project will be financed by the Cameroon Public Investment Fund under the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development, MINEPAT.

The rehabilitation of the residence, per football pundits spoken to by this site and confirmed by other newsrooms, will be in line with plans by the government of Cameroon to give the former Indomitable Lions talisman a resident iconic enough to match his status as one of Africa’s greatest football figures of all time.This, as the country looks forward to hosting the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

Roving Ambassador, Roger Milla for over three decades, has remained arguably the most looked-up to football figure in Cameroon and is placed among Africa’s greatest.

The 1990 Italia FIFA World Cup star will be one of the focal points when the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament take place in Cameroon in January and February next year.
