On June 30, 1975, President Ahmadou Ahidjo reshuffled his cabinet. Paul Biya was appointed Prime Minister, Philemon Yang was appointed Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration, Bello Bouba Maigari was appointed 1st Deputy Secretary General at the Presidency of the Republic, Hamadou Moustapha was appointed Economy and Finance Minister

Today Biya is President, Yang is Prime Minister, Bello Bouba Maigari is Minister of State in charge of Tourism and Leisure and Hamadou Moustapha is Minister of Special Duties at the Presidency of the Republic```
Forty two years after, the same people are still spinning around on swivel chairs, completely senile...

As an official in post-independence 1960s Cameroon, Biya rose to prominence under President Ahmadou Ahidjo. After becoming Director of the Cabinet of the Minister of National Education in January 1964 and Secretary-General of the Ministry of National Education in July 1965, he was named Director of the Civil Cabinet of the President in December 1967 and Secretary-General of the Presidency (while remaining Director of the Civil Cabinet) in January 1968

He gained the rank of Minister in August 1968 and the rank of Minister of State in June 1970, while remaining Secretary-General of the Presidency. 
Following the creation of a Unitary State in 1972, he became Prime Minister of Cameroon on 30 June 1975. In June 1979, a law designated the Prime Minister as the President's constitutional successor. Ahidjo unexpectedly announced his resignation on 4 November 1982, and Biya accordingly succeeded him as President of Cameroon on 6 November.

42 years as PM and President, Cameroon still remains a dilemma, and will remain, till Mr. Biya dies as President. Lord Have Mercy
