Trip Canceled - Why Paul Biya Sulks Qatar?

The President of the Republic was announced on an official visit from March 27 to 28, 2016. One year and six months later, there is no longer any talk about it, nor to the Prime Minister, let alone the Presidency of the Republic.

On the newsstand on October 4, 2017, the newspaper Repères stresses that the high authorities of Qatar should certainly find the right formula that will decide Paul Biya to go to Doha. Although this oil-rich state knows how to be generous, all the formulas concocted twice already were considered unattractive by the Cameroonian head of state.

It is that, recalled a regular of the circles of decisions, Qatar had solicited an official visit of the man of the 6 of November. "Preparations were under way and some media had already disclosed this information," it said. It is the daily newspaper of the Economy which twice announced the visit of the Head of State in Doha. "This journal held the right tip. We are working in this direction ", it is said. The official visit in question was to take place from 27 to 28 March 2016.

During this mainly economic visit, Yaounde was considering proposing the construction of social housing in Doha, given that the Qatari company Haba Business Group does not hide its interest in a project to build 10,000 homes in Cameroon. This is supported by the fact that Qatar is financing major European football clubs, just as it is presented as a crucible of experts in the construction of sports infrastructures.

Since 2011, bi-weekly magazine, Biya is very committed to the construction of infrastructures likely to allow him to leave an indelible mark in the collective memory. Some of these projects are underway, others are for the most part in the pipeline, with funding still awaited. "The visit to Qatar was also aimed at seeking financing for the Douala-Yaoundé-Bafoussam and Edéa-Kribi motorway projects. Projects that have to be carried out especially for Edéa-Kribi, you know that the deep water port of Kribi is well advanced, if not almost ready, "observes this fine connoisseur of the important files of the country.

According to indiscretions, the newspaper indicates that Paul Biya himself was taking the news of the interministerial meetings that were held at the Prime Minister's office for his visit to Qatar. But why was this withdrawal when the date, the delegation of Cameroon and others were known and ready? "It is the involvement of Qatar in some hot issues of the world. Records that cost the lives of more than one person, "the source said, referring to the country's suspicions of financing international terrorism. True or false, in any case Paul Biya does not want to display the image of a political leader who embraces the devil on the mouth.
