Dr Mustapha Mekideche visited Cameroon to rekindle the Peer Review Process
Cameroon Prime Minister Philemon Yang, hosting APR Panel Member Dr Mustapha Mekideche, on behalf of H.E. the President of the Republic of Cameroon, on February 14th 2013 afternoon in Yaoundé.
Dr Mustapha Mekideche, Member of the Panel of Eminent Persons of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) in charge of Cameroon, was granted an audience with Cameroon Prime Minister Philémon Yang on behalf of the President of the Republic, on February 14th afternoon in Yaoundé. Cameroon was one of the first African countries to officially join APRM on April 3, 2003. The main purpose of Dr Mekideche’s visit was to discuss with the Cameroonian authorities the ways and means to rekindle the Peer Review Process, through the establishment of national APRM structures, particularly the National Governance Council. Dr Mekideche explained that the role of APRM was neither contentious nor competitive with other governance programmes in place, but would, at the contrary, support the existing Cameroon National Programme of Governance, by strengthening it and granting it a greater visibility. At the end of the meeting, the Prime Minister reassured Dr Mekideche of the political will to subject Cameroon to the Peer Review Process and promised that the APRM activities would start imminently in Cameroon.
