Panic in Etoudi: nocturnal agitations at the Palace of Unity

While all the leaders of the world, including Ali Bongo-, who still suffers from the consequences of his stroke - are at the warfront against the coronavirus, Paul Biya, dean of the African heads of state, remains absent on the ground. Not a single public appearance or even a speech to the nation. Apart from a small press release on the Covid-19 dated March 17, 2020, the Cameroonian president seems to no longer follow the news of his country and the rest of the world.

While rumors about his state of health circulate in social networks announcing the presence of a medical aircraft on Cameroonian territory, the old Lion of Etoudi, instead of proving his health by his presence on the ground, reappears ... paper! 

After scribbling a tribute to Manu Dibango on the 24th, Paul Biya published decrees on March 25 in the middle of the night. “Mr. Tanyitiku Enohachuo Bayee is effective March 25, 2020, appointed Director General of the National School of Local Administration (NASLA). 

# PaulBiya # Cameroon ”, wrote Paul Biya on his Facebook page at 8:09 pm He had already appointed Mrs. Ongolo Nyanguinda Lidwine Deputy Director General of the National School of Local Administration (NASLA) shortly before.

As usual, the document specifies that "the interested party will be entitled to the benefits of all kinds provided for by the regulations in force". The document bears the signature of the Head of State. It was on March 2 that we became aware of the decree establishing, organizing and operating the National School of Local Administration (NASLA), a public administrative and professional establishment. It also has legal personality and financial autonomy.

Tireless, the 87-year-old president of the republic forgot to sit down to eat, but again sent a message of condolence to Chadian President Idriss D├ęby. “????????????????? I firmly condemn the cowardly and barbaric aggression perpetrated by the terrorist group Boko Haram in Boma against valiant Chadian soldiers. My sincere condolences to HE Idriss Deby Itno, the families of the victims and the Chadian Nation. 

# PaulBiya # Cameroon. ”Wrote Paul Biya. 

What an overflowing activity! Exactly what time the staff of the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon find rest? Don't they eat? Do they not sleep? Were these nocturnal decrees so urgent? Far from reassuring, this sudden agitation in the palate is more like panic.
