Finally, the rendez-vous was well respected for March 17, 2023, meeting date for the 15th Central African Heads of State Conference that just ended.
The five Presidents of Chad, Republic of Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Central African Republic all answered present alongside Cameroon’s President during the Yaounde meeting that focused on fostering sub-regional integration amongst many issues of common interest.
Last to jet off from Cameroon was the new President of the CEMAC Heads of State Conference, Faustin-Archange Touadera, President of the Central African Republic
His flight took off at exactly 12 noon this March 18, 2023, sometime after he granted a press briefing at the Yaounde Hilton Hotel, host of the four other Presidents during the CEMAC Conference.
Before jetting off, President Faustin-Archange Touadera had some airport civilities marked by a brief discussion with the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Chief Dr Joseph Dion Ngute who was on hand alongside many Gvernment Officials to bid farewell to the Central African Statesman.
In a very brief but colourful state protocol ceremony, he saluted his kinsmen in Cameroon, the City Mayor, the Governor and some Cabinet Ministers.
He then received a photo album from the Prime Minister, who flipped through some pages to show the President some of the moments he had in Cameroon, immortalized in photographs.
At 12 noon, the sound is heard from the skyline and there goes the Central African Head of State, new man at the helm of the CEMAC Conference, he replaces President Paul Biya of Cameroon in this prestigious post in the sub-region.
His counterparts of Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon left Cameroon sometime after the closing ceremony of the CEMAC Conference on Friday, March 17, 2023.
News lines have been drawn for the subregion by those who matter and time has been taken for the projects of interest to be put in place for the development of the CEMAC Zone
