After stagger-a-staggering with Jean Nana Sandjo, the Biya Francophone Beti-Ewondo regime finally decided to move away from their man. At the end of the extraordinary board meeting of Camair-Co that held on Monday, August 22, 2016, Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o, the head of the transport sector in Cameroon announced that 49 years old Ernest Dikum was the new general manager of the company.
Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o reportedly profiled the new GM of Camair-Co at the end of the Douala session and assigned new objectives. Said the Transport Minister “Ernest Dikum is a great specialist in air transport. He is also an experienced man whose skills and qualifications in the field of air transport are proven and universally recognized.”
Cameroon Intelligence Report understands that after graduating from the Higher Institute of Tourism and Economy in Rabat, Morocco, Ernest Dikum in 1992, got an additional qualification in the management of database systems from a Computer Institute in the United States in 1996. This was followed by an MBA at Usa College in partnership with Coventry University in Britain in 2013.
His professional experience and expertise are particularly eloquent which explains why President Paul Biya decided to entrust the General Directorate of Camair-Co to him. Ernest Dikum has an outstanding career with Emirates airline, which is considered one of the best in the world. Within this renowned company, Mr. Ndikum has held since 2004, many strategic positions in relation to the African markets including the position of Regional Director for the West Africa region and Sahelian Senegal.
