This is another shock for the institution, which has just experienced the most tumultuous session in its history. First there was the fire of November 16 (two days after the opening of the works), which ravaged several offices on four floors; secondly, the protest of the SDF deputies who, with the blockade operation, disrupted the plenary sessions. Finally, there is the passing of the 2018 Finance Act and the exasperation of the Hon. Patricia Ndam Njoya, MPP, which resulted in the injury of her colleague from the CPDN, ​​the Honorable Richard Wallang.

Secretary General of the National Assembly since February 15, 2010, he had previously held senior positions in the Cameroonian administration.
