The president is highly regarded throughout Africa, and indeed throughout the world, and many countries have policies prohibiting young people from running for it, despite the fact that it is one of the most important elected positions to have.
Despite a number of health issues and the fact that he is elderly and unable to walk without the assistance of his bodyguard, Hon. Biya has stayed the course and continues to lead his campaigns.
Man's not Barry Roux, a Twitter user, has expressed his severe dissatisfaction by asking us Africans who have bewitched us. He believes that the Cameron president, Hon. Biya, is too old to retire and rest.
"Paul Biya, the 88-year-old President of Cameroon, is being taken to the platform for his re-election campaign in the approaching elections. Who was it that enchanted Africa?" He penned something.
In Africa, the elderly or presidents who hold on to power and refuse to relinquish it is widespread, and as we can see, most African countries are led by old gentlemen who refuse to relinquish power to the youth.
