Decentralization: the new measures of Paul Biya


In his general orientation speech to the national representation, the President of the Republic is considering expanding the powers of local and regional authorities.

Undoubtedly, decentralization was one of the most anticipated points in the first seven-year speech of "great opportunities".As expected, the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, opted for sustainability as part of the acceleration of the ongoing decentralization process.

During the September 2018-2015, the desire of the Cameroonian people to be better involved in the management of local affairs will be taken more into account. Solemn commitment was made last Tuesday in his speech of oath to the National Assembly. "As soon as possible, measures will be taken to broaden the scope of decentralized territorial communities to give them the means for greater autonomy," he said.

In front of the national representation and the constituted bodies, Paul Biya indicated his will to impel a new dynamic to the decentralization in Cameroon. A higher speed or even a strengthening of the participation of Cameroonians in public life, which aims to reduce as much as possible "frustrations and dissatisfactions". Moral pitfalls that have led a segment of the population into activities that are totally at odds with the law.

Especially the young people who were dropped on the side of the development race. Concerned with the emergence of Cameroon by 2035, the therapy proposed by President Paul Biya is declined through the broadening of the scope of competencies of the decentralized territorial collectivies. Especially through the involvement of the grassroots in development actions in areas such as health, education, environment, urbanization, housing, heritage protection, etc., for an irrigating progress. whole body of society.

Great concern of the Cameroonian people as a whole, not only of the Northwest and South West, decentralization has been a battlehorse of the Head of State. We still remember the battery of the first legal texts of July 2004 applicable to municipalities and local authorities decentralized.

The first companies marked by the seal of the approximation of the administration of the administered, coupled with the facilitation for the latter to access the basic social facilities. On March 2, 2018, a decisive turning point in decentralization began with the creation of a ministerial department entirely devoted to it. During the current fiscal year, the general allocation on decentralization amounts to ten billion F.

Coherent and consistent in its approach, it is a safe bet to see the achievement of the very high commitment of President Paul Biya. After all, the facts demonstrate it enough: he remains and remains a man of honor.
