During his visit to Buea in 2014, President Biya was too excited to be in Buea, so much so that in his speech, he reminded the Anglophone people that Buea was, and is still the Capital of Southern Cameroons.

Revisit his speech below

Speech of the Head of State on the occasion of the celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Reunification



The President of the Senat,
The President of the National Assembly,
Prime Minister Head of Government,
The President of the Supreme Court,
Heads of Diplomatic Missions and Representatives of International Organisations,
My dear compatriots,  
Ladies and gentlemen,

I would like to thank the Mayor of Buea for the warm words of welcome addressed to my wife and me.
I wish to extend my warm greetings to the dynamic people of the South-West region who have come out in such great numbers, from Fako, from Kupe Manenguba, from Lebialem, from Manyu, from Meme and from Ndian to welcome my wife and me on this great occasion. As you all know, the South-West region has always been very close to my heart.
I also thank you all who have come from the other regions of the country, from the Adamawa, from the Centre, from the East, from the Far-North, from the Littoral, from the North, from the North-West, from the South and from the West. Your massive presence here today is testimony not only of our unity in diversity, but also of the importance you attach to the Reunification of our country.
I have not forgotten our friends, the members of the diplomatic corps and the representatives of International Organisations, who have come to attend this important ceremony. I thank them immensely for their participation and support.
At the beginning of this commemorative ceremony, I would like to express our great appreciation to the United Nations and to friendly countries who have worked with us for the independence and reunification of Cameroon.
I also want to thank all our external partners whose support to our development efforts, over the past fifty years, remained constant. We know we can continue to rely on their friendship, for the future.
Fellow compatriots,  
Ladies and gentlemen,


At long last, here we are in Buea ! Here we are in Buea to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our Reunification. As the English people say, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. In fact, after a long period of preparation, we are finally glad to be here in this historic town of Buea, the town of LEGENDARY HOSPITALITY. I am glad to be in Buea, the bedrock of our Reunification.

History has not forgotten that Buea was the headquarters of West Cameroon. History has not forgotten that Buea was the capital of Southern Cameroons. And history has not forgotten that Buea was once the capital of German Cameroon. That is why I say that Buea is a historic town.

I am proud, very proud to be in Buea, proud to walk on the same soil like our heroes who fought for Reunification.
I have been to Buea several times. Today I can see that Buea has changed a great deal. I hope that you are also of the same opinion. I hope that you too see the same things I see. There is no doubt that Buea is now a befitting capital for the South-West region. A lot of work has been carried out here. It is my wish that other regional headquarters look as beautiful as Buea.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Three years ago, we launched the jubilee period with celebrations marking the fiftieth anniversary of our Independence. With the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Reunification here in Buea where it took place, we will be closing this cycle which has helped us to revisit our history.
We have every reason to be proud of our Reunification and the best way of being worthy of it is to spare no effort to preserve our national unity. 
Long live Independence!
Long live Reunification!
Long live Cameroon! 
(I now invite you to join me in singing our National Anthem)
