As is the tradition at every important event, King Mohammed VI of Morocco has just sent a message of congratulations to President Paul Biya, on the occasion of the National Day of the Republic of Cameroon, this Thursday, May 20, 2021. The Moroccan monarch expressed his sincere congratulations to the Cameroonian President and his wishes for progress and prosperity for the Cameroonian people.
King Mohammed VI also welcomed, on this occasion, the « solid ties of African brotherhood » between the two countries which « are a major asset for the deepening » of bilateral relations, assuring the Cameroonian President of his determination to pursue joint action « to strengthen our partnership so that it becomes a model of strong and active inter-African cooperation, for the benefit of our two brotherly peoples, and in the service of peace, stability and sustainable development in our continent.
It should be recalled that on 20 May 1972, President Ahmadou Ahidjo (who died on 30 November 1989 in Dakar, Senegal), organised a referendum to put an end to the federal system in force until that time. The referendum was largely won and 20 May became the bank holidays of a Cameroon that would henceforth be called the United Republic of Cameroon.
