Amongst those to be received by the Head of state in Buea, this reported has learnt is the National Youth president of the National Union for Democracy and Progress and Progress (NUDP), Ndansi Elvis Nukam who is his party’s coordinator of militants’ participation at the reunification celebration in Buea.
Quizzed on what he will tell the head of state in Buea, Mr. Ndansi said “I would tell him that he needs youths in his government to provide the steam needed for the engine that will lead Cameroon to emergence”.
Reacting to why he has been chosen by his party to coordinate his party’s participation at the reunification jubilee celebration, Mr. Ndansi opined that “as National Youth President, I am an authority in the party and also the fact that I hail from the Anglophone part of the country”.
In the meantime, President Paul Biya and wife Chantal will arrive Buea this Tuesday February 18 for an official visit to the Southwest region. On Thursday February 20, 2014, Mr. Biya will preside over activities marking the belated 50th anniversary of Cameroon’s reunification.
In a press conference in Yaounde last week, the Minister of Communication revealed that the government has spent over CFA 35 billion francs on projects in preparation for the 50th anniversary. He reported that contractors have completed their projects and Buea town is ready and fit to receive the President and his wife.
