THEME CELEBRATION:
“Army and Nation, together for a united, peaceful and prosperous Cameroon”.

CONTEXTE

A few more days and Cameroon will be celebrating its bank holidays to commemorate the advent of the unitary state. This year, national unity is 52 years old. On 6 May 1972, Cameroonians from both sides of the Moungo decided to unite their destinies by voting overwhelmingly in favour of the creation of a unitary state. The United Republic of Cameroon, which came into being by referendum, replaced the federal state, whose institutional burdens had, according to the leaders of the time, become too heavy for a young state with limited resources. Since then, 20 May has been chosen as the country’s bank holidays, to celebrate the cherished achievement of unity. After two years of suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, the public manifestations of this great celebration were reactivated last year with the effective presence of the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, on the Boulevard du 20 mai to preside over the military parade and the civilian parade planned for the occasion.
In preparation for the celebrations, the Head of State, Head of the Armed Forces, has set the theme that will guide the festivities. The theme of the solemnity of 20 May 2024 is “Army and Nation, together for a united, peaceful and prosperous Cameroon”.
