Paul Biya is bereaved: Hamadjodda Adjoudji minister from 1984 to 2004 died today in France

Hamadjodda Adjoudji minister from 1984 to 2004 in several successive governments of Biya died on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday in France.

Born in 1937, and originally from Banyo in the department of Mayo-Banyo Adamaoua region, the veterinary doctor Hamadjodda Adjoudji was trained at the National Veterinary School of Alfort (ENVA) and the Institute of Livestock and Veterinary Medicine of Tropical Countries (IEMVT).

He will remain Minister of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries (Minepia) from July 7, 1984 to December 8, 2004 or 20 years of uninterrupted presence in the government.

Prior to his death, he was Deputy Secretary General of the Democratic Rally of the Cameroonian People (CPoP), which he has joined since its founding in Bamenda in the North West Region in 1985.

President Biya’s first-time believer saw his political weight shrink in Adamaoua in August 2016, when prominent figures from his region sent a memorandum to President Biya.

In this memorandum these elites rolled out a string of claims and denounced the lack of infrastructure in their area.

These claims had not been shared by the “record man” of government presence.
