Yaounde-Cameroon: Biya's humiliation of Mebe Ngo'o sent chills down his spine

The Minister of Transport was sacked when he was expected to officiate the opening ceremony of the new Port in Kribi. According to information from French Newspaper Nouvelle Expression published on the 5th of March, 2018, Edgar Alain Mebo Ngo'o felt humiliated following the cabinet reshuffle.

He was in charge of the ministry of Transport since the last cabinet rebrand of 2nd October 2015. He was replaced by Jean Ernest Messana Ngalle Bibehe. Paul Biya's Presidential decree as stressed by our correspondent came when the erstwhile Minister of Defence would have presided over the opening ceremony of the new port of Kribi.

 

Invitations and ceremonial gadgets and badges had already been printed and highlighted "Under the distinguished patronage of the Minister of Transport" In the supposed official opening of the Kribi Deep Seaport, that was programmed for the 2nd of March,2018, the Minister of Transport was supposed to officially launch the epic opening of the Kribi seaport.

Instead it was the Senior Divisional Officer for the Ocean Division, Antoine Bisaga, who had to officiate the opening ceremony of the port. The Kribi Deep Seaport nevertheless remains a white elephant project harnessed from borrowed funds that won't generate the much trumpeted returns. Lack of foresight and insight has ruined a beautiful project that was carried out without adequate environmental analysis as well as checking at their respective neighbouring countries, so as to see what kind of projects that are being carried out. If this was meticulously done, the Kribi Deep Seaport project would have been shelved for another lucrative project with ascertain financial returns.

The Senior Divisional Officer did the opening ceremony following very strict instructions from the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon. The opening ceremony was bizarrely done void of speeches as many onlookers and public opinion that deems such occasions to merit speeches. This presumed grandiose occasion was to remain an illusion because it would have been officially launched by President Paul Biya.

The Governor of the East who was on his way to Kribi was obliged to make a u-turn back to Ebolowa.
