The C2D regional capital programme in Bertoua were launched last year by her predecessor, Jean Claude Mbwentchou, and following reports on the slow execution of these projects, the Minister embarked on a two-day working visit on Wednesday July 10, to see for herself the realities on the ground.
She was accompanied by French Ambassador to Cameroon, East Governor and other top officials to the project sites, where she called on contractors to involve the local population, the youths in particular, in the execution of the contracts, and also to respect the set deadlines.
" Youths should have jobs in the contracts; it is not normal that the opportunities that the Head of State is giving, people can sit there and the company is working with people coming out of the city. It is not normal", cried Courtés.
Her comments were appreciated by Minister of Public Service and Administrative reforms, Joseph Le, who solicited that the population should be well informed of such opportunities, so that they make use of it. Bertoua has over FCFA 21 billion C2D regional capital programme funds, which involves the installation of solar street lights, construction of public toilets and gardens, all aimed at raising the standards of the population
During her visit which rounded off on Wednesday, she was able to visit the Bertoua municipal garage, and the 14km stretch of secondary road, under construction in different neighbourhoods in Bertoua. C2D programme is a product of the French government, through the French Development Fund.
