Female Africa Cup of Nations 2016: Yang Philemon lobbies South West Chiefs to mobilise their population
Prime Minister Philemon Yang was in Limbe and Buea in the South West region to inspect sport infrastructures and facilities that will be used during the 2016 Women Africa Cup of Nations. The premier visited hotels, newly constructed roads and the football playgrounds.
Yang started his two day tour with an inspection of the Buea Mountain Hotel and the Parliamentarian Flat. The Biya emissary then made a stop at both the Buea Town and the Molyko Stadia where the elephant from Oku reportedly admired the carefully maintained green turf implanted on the training grounds.
In Limbe, the Head of Government was at the Atlantic Beach Hotel, the Centenary, Middle Farm and the Municipal Stadia. He had productive exchanges with contractors and other stakeholders of the different projects and urged them to respect CAF’s specifications, which includes the quality of material being used and most importantly, the deadline.
The Prime Minister was accompanied by elderly statesman and Minister of State, in charge of Tourism and Leisure, Bello Bouba Maigari, the Minister of Sports and Physical Education, Bidoung Mkpatt and the South West Governor, Bernard Okalia Bilai.
At the end of his working visit, Philemon Yang was visibly satisfied with the quality and pace of the work. He appealed to the traditional rulers of the South West region to mobilise their people and encourage them to be hospitable to foreign nationals coming for the tournament. A CAF delegation is expected to visit Buea and Limbe for their own evaluation soonest.
