The administrative and political divide that has erupted between the Minister of Finance, Alamine Ousmane Mey and Minette Libom Li Likeng, Cameroon's Director of Customs has shattered the functioning of both government departments. Some reports say 65 graduates from the National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM) who were supposed to work at the Customs sector still do not know their future as Minister Alamine Ousmane Mey had long suspended the signature of Minette Libom for non-compliance with procedures.
Recruited on November the 12th 2014 by the Public Service, the 65 graduates of the National School of Administration and Magistracy were made available to the Directorate General of Customs who reportedly made major appointments involving some of the 65 without consulting the minister. The Minette appointments raised the wrath of the Minister of Finance who publicly reminded the custom boss that it was not within the competence of the Director General of Customs to make such appointments. Nothing can best represent the end of a regime than the fact that laws are no longer being respected by highly placed government officials. Our source revealed that the 65 students may end up back on the streets if the presidency of the republic fails to step into the matter.
Our chief political correspondent who contributed to this report observed that Paul Biya now runs a country where no one takes responsibility, no one apologize and no one resigns.
