Huge Investments For Quality Standards

Football fans from across the world will be converging on Cameroon as from 9 January, 2022 to watch good talents who ply their trade on the continent and beyond. The competition is taking place after the country took the commitment some years back to host the event in grand style. Repeated promises by the Head of State, President Paul Biya to provide the required infrastructure for the competition have often been met with scepticism or even derision from certain quotas. Such reservations failed to take into account the resolve of a people to defend their national pride.

While counting on the economic benefits in the host cities and beyond are going to make from AFCON, the country has evidently achieved much in terms of roads, hotels, hospitals and other social amenities that will be useful to citizens long after AFCON. Health care services are some of the basic needs no government that is keen on ensuring the welfare of its population can afford to trifle with.     
Of course, as far as road infrastructure is concerned, many are familiar with the saying that wherever there is a road, development passes. It is therefore evident that localities where the road network has witnessed some improvement or the total construction of new roads thanks to the AFCON will in the days ahead find reasons to make good business. It therefore means that the living conditi...
