President Paul Biya prescribes the continuation of the reconstruction of the regions in crisis in Cameroon.
In the circular relating to the preparation of the State budget for the 2023 financial year, President Paul Biya listed the priorities and set out the main guidelines for public action over the next twelve months. Among these priorities, the reconstruction of regions in the throes of the crisis. “The continuation of the reconstruction of the regions affected by the crises, in particular those of the North-West, the South-West and the Far North”, prescribed the Head of State, calling for “maintenance of the security watch and health”.
The reconstruction of these regions, the first two of which are plagued by separatism, is a key point in the policy of the Head of State. It aims through the presidential plan, to give these regions a new breath of development. On July 8, the steering committee of the Presidential Plan for the reconstruction and development of the English-speaking regions was held under the chairmanship of Balungeli Confiance Ebune, Minister Director of the Cabinet of Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute.
The objective of this 4th session of the Steering Committee was to assess the socio-economic situation of the North-West and South-West regions. The first assessment of the 18 months of execution of the reconstruction plan reported nearly 20 centers and 30 schools rehabilitated. These facilities now accommodate more than 7,000 students. More than 800 lost official documents have also been reconstructed.
