The donation is meant to improve on the working conditions of state administrators in the ten regions of Cameroon.
The advent of crises in the North West and South West regions have caused destruction or the arsoning of administrative cars of state authorities by terrorist. Cases abound where Divisional, Sub Divisional officers and Regional Delegates had their service cars burned down, stolen or destroyed. The former and late Sub Divisional officer of Batibo who was kidnapped and later killed by terrorists and his car set to flames is a glaring example. While some of the cars have suffered from violence perpetrated by terrorists, others have gone obsolete and others have simply witnessed the gradual and progressive degradation due to the nature of roads administrative authorities ply to render services to the population in remote areas of their zones of competence.
Few weeks after the swearing-in of President Paul Biya for a new seven-year mandate and some few months up to the organization of the 2019 municipal and legislative elections in Cameroon, the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, has donated some 50 vehicles to regional administrative authorities. These vehicles are an absolute necessity that will henceforth go a long way to facilitate and improve on the working conditions of the administrative heads who are expected to be in proximity with the local population so as to ensure that the actions of government is trickled down to the lowest level through supervisory missions or meet the peoples tour.
The Governor of the South West Region, Bernard Okalia Bilai was at the Ministry of Territorial Administration in Yaounde during which he received the keys to some jeeps that were destined for the Divisional and Sub Divisional heads of the South West Region. While handing the keys of the modern and robust TOYOTA 4×4 jeeps to the Governor, the Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji, saluted the efforts made by the Head of State, President Paul Biya, to improve on the working conditions of Cameroon civil servants. He called on the users to make judicious use of the vehicles which he said is meant for service purposes.
