All presidential resorts belonging to the Head of State President Biya located in the Adamawa Region have been abandoned. The villas were built by Mr Biya’s predecessor, the late Ahmadou Ahidjo and inaugurated in 1974. In the first villa located in the administrative district, in Ngaoundere, the courtyard of the presidential residence has been covered with grass for ages. The walls are cracked; the white color of the paint gone and several glass doors and windows shattered. The sheets of the roof are flying away and the apartment is empty.
The condition of the second villa is very disturbing and falls under emergence 2035. It is almost swallowed up by grass and some nearby trees and has no roof. The spiders that live there have carefully woven their webs. All the window protectors are missing and behind is a rusty satellite dish surrounded by herbs that apparently protect it. The third villa located opposite the headquarters of the regional station of the Cameroon Radio Television (CRTV) Adamawa is also fading away with no care and maintenance.
