Cameroon's President, One Of Africa's Longest-Serving Leaders, To Run Again In October Election!

Cameroon’s president, one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders, announced Friday he will run again in October’s election, while growing tensions with Anglophone separatists exploded in an ambush on a delegation led by the country’s defense minister.


The 85-year-old President Paul Biya has been in power since 1982. He oversees an increasingly restive Central African nation that faces not only the separatists but also the threat from Boko Haram extremists crossing the border from Nigeria.

In his announcement on Twitter, the president told his countrymen that “I am willing to respond positively to your overwhelming calls.” Cameroon got rid of term limits in 2008 after Biya pressed to change the constitution.
