The President of the Republic, His Excellency Paul BIYA has received New Year wishes from Members of the Diplomatic Corps and some national dignitaries.

A ceremony to mark the solemn event was held on 6 January 2017 at the Unity Palace.

He commended President Paul BIYA and the People of Cameroon on their outstanding hospitality toward refugees from Nigeria and the Central African Republic. He equally lauded the country’s remarkable stability.

In response, H.E. Paul BIYA noted that Mgr. Piero Pioppo’s appraisal was objective. Thus, he seized the opportunity to reiterate the need to protect Cameroon’s unity in diversity.
