Cameroon says recruitment of 25,000 youth into public service jobs a huge success

In order to reduce the number of young people leaving university and other tertiary institutions in the country every year without jobs, President Paul Biya on February 10, 2011, ordered a special recruitment of 25,000 youths into the Civil Service. According to Angouin Ange Michel, the Minister of Public Service and Administrative Reforms, the operation went on well and was concluded in 2013 with the publication of further lists to replace those who were selected, but failed to turn up.

Except for 419 workers whose salaries have been suspended for various reasons such as abandoning work or succeeding in other recruitment tests, the whole exercise was a huge success. In all, 25,074 youths were recruited into the Public Service and the committee that was set up by the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Philemon Yang, to oversee the exercise, has since been dissolved – having concluded its work.
