Cameroonian President Paul Biya on Wednesday made his plan of action for 2019 known to Council of Ministers, according to the presidency.
The plan of action will focus fundamentally on security and development, according to the Prime Minister and the Head of Government Joseph Dion Ngute.
“We have to work on security, maintaining peace in the four corners of the country and advancing the economic program of Cameroon so as to get to emergence in 2035. And of course we have to work on the program for the youths to ensure that we give the youths a satisfaction and make them fulfill their potentials,” Ngute told reporters after the meeting.
Biya also asked the government officials to restore peace in the two troubled English-speaking regions where a conflict about independence from the largely French-speaking country had been escalating, according to some officials who attended the meeting.
It was the first council meeting since the cabinet reshuffle on Jan. 4.
