Though long awaited, many are those who did not see the exit of major faces from Biya’s government. The likes of Amadou Ali, Mama Fouda, abba Sadou who had eternal stays in government were shown the door.
Biya’s January 4 decrees kick start the new seven year mandate of greater opportunities. Below are the Ministers that have been kicked out of government.
Philemon Yang: After spending close to a decade as Prime Minister, it is time for Philemon Yang to bid farewell to the government with a record of the longest-serving PM. He has been replaced by Joseph Dion Ngute.
Amadou Ali: He has been a mainstay in government spending decades from one ministry to the other but he has been snubbed this time around as he leaves his position as Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of the Assemblies. He has been replaced by Wakata Bolvine.
Mama Fouda:He is equally one of the big names to fall out of Paul Biya’s government after his 11-year stay at the Ministry of Public Health. He has been replaced by Manaouda Malachie.
Zacharie Perevet: He has dropped from the Ministry of Employment and Vocational training as Paul Biya decided to replace him with former Communication Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary.
