Reunification Celebration Is Measurable To None In Cameroon – Lawan Bako 

By Isidore Abah — The United Democratic Party, UDP, National Chairman, Elhadji Lawan Bako, has said the celebration of 50 years of Reunification was the greatest ceremony ever in Cameroon.

Lawan Bako was speaking to The Post in Bamenda after returning from Buea. Hear him: “I was in Buea personally; it was marvelous. This celebration is measurable to no other occasion in Cameroon. President Paul Biya took time to organise the 50th anniversary of Reunification.

The People of the Southwest, by my estimation, are happy to have received FCFA 35 billion in investment projects. Some people expected President Biya to make promises or point out projects in the Southwest only. They were wrong, because, he innumerated projects all over the country.

The 35 billion invested in the Southwest is more than FCFA 5 billion that he invested in the Northwest during the 50th anniversary of the military. So, the people of Southwest should be thankful to the Head of State and pray him to continue giving more developments projects to the Region as well as other regions of Cameroon.”

Chinese To Construct Kumba-Mamfe Road — Two Chinese companies, China Communications Construction Company Ltd, CCCC, and Jiangsu Provincial Transportation Engineering Group, have been awarded the contract to construct the Kumba-Mamfe road estimated at circa FCFA 54.6 billion.
