The launch of President Paul Biya’s Tri-annual plan on 11th January 2017 was a reminder of the Head of State’s interest in the Youths. Since the launch, a number of youths have been brought to the lime-light, and their savoir- faire show-cased for the benefit of Social and Economic Development.
The appointment of Jean Marc Afesi Mbafor amongst the 15 members of the newly created National Commission on Bilingualism and Multi-Culturalism is another prove that the Youth of Cameroon have a contribution to make in every sphere in the society.
This Entrepreneur who has been at the Head of the National Youth Council since 2013 knows so well the challenges faced by the predominantly youth population of Cameroon. The holder of a Higher Diplomat on Business Administration created the Mustard Seed Association intended to assist Youths Understand and play their role in issues in Development.
Marc Afesi Mbafor was born in Yaoundé of parents from Santa-North West Region. He grew up in Yaoundé, Cameroon’s Political Capital. Little wonder President Paul Biya identifies this Young Cameroonian; one who has been a perfect blend of two cultures. English speaking culture acquired by birth, and the French culture acquired from the part of the country he grew up.
