President Paul Biya (81) has today honoured the visiting General Director of UNESCO, Irina Bokova. During an audience at state house which lasted more than an hour, Mr. Biya praised UNESCO and its leadership for contributing towards peace and prosperity around the globe. Both leaders discussed the improvement of already existing good relationship between Cameroon and UNSESCO. President Biya without consulting the National Assembly conferred the National Order of Valour which is Cameroon’s highest honour to Mrs Irina Bokova. The UNESCO boss then paid a courtesy call at the National Higher Teachers Training College (ENS) where she again was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Yaoundé University 1.
