A single meeting interspersed with two closed doors and the verdict is in. Meeting on October 6, in Yaoundé, the ministerial committee of the Central African Monetary Union (UMAC), which brings together Gabon, Congo, Chad, CAR, Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon, has decided to suspend the controversial competitive examination for the recruitment of senior managers of the Bank of Central African States (BEAC). “(…) Pending an audit by an international firm recruited on the basis of the terms of reference validated by the ministerial committee”, confirms a Minister of Finance joined by Young Africa.
Chairman of this body, but also of the board of directors of the regional central bank, Hervé Ndoba, the Central African financier, therefore won the standoff that had opposed him for several weeks to the governor, the Chadian Abbas Mahamat Tolli. The first, through letters, has constantly called for a ministerial consultation to be held since dysfunctions marred the organization of the events and suspicions of nepotism were revealed after the publication of the list of candidates eligible.
