THREE THINGS I LIKE ABOUT CAMEROON

Fertile Soil

1, Fertile Soil .
Cameroon is one of the country's in the world with rich and fertile soil.

With the help of the fertile soil agriculture is one of the activity most Cameroonians are engaged in.

The fertile soil have permitted my country to be able to produce and supply quality food stuffs within and out of the country.

Tourism

2, Good touristic environment
There are over 100 touristic sites in Cameroon .
Which are mountains, beaches, zoo's, sea port, water bodies, hotels, caves,
Mount cameroon is located in the south west region it's elevation is about 4,040m. And the government always host an international competition every year for athletes to climb the mountain.

Sports

3 Sports
My Country is one of the best sport country's in Africa especially in football.

We have won the African cup of nations 5 times first in 1984, 1988, 2000 , 2002 and 2017 we hosted the last edition and we won the 3rd place.

Three Things I Will like To See My Country Change

The on going political crisis between the English speaking and the French speaking regions.

Since the out break of this crisis in 2016 Cameroon have lost over 5000 lives and over 1 million of people internally displayed and some and some are seeking refuge in neighbouring countries like Nigeria and alot of properties destroyed.

Patterning this ongoing civil war alot of social activities have slow down. Schools in most villages in the two English speaking regions have short down and some of them burnt down.

My greatest dream is seeing the govern solve the issues and life coming back to normal in the country especially in the Northwest and Southwest region.

2, Poor Roads infrastructure
Though Cameroon is a developing country the poor roads in the country is really something else. In the rainy season it's really a nightmare

Every year there is increase in the number of cars in the streets but the roads still remain the same with little or no maintainance .

I will like to see my country increase the length of roads and make sure to be maintaining the roads regularly.

3,Embezzlement and corruption

They say the youths are the leaders of tomorrow but that is not the case in Cameroon all big positions in the country are occupied by age and elderly people. And embezzlement and corruption is the every day discussion.

After school with alot of quality education youths still move arround the streets jobless.

Even the president of the country have been in the post for about 40 years and his cabinet are the same like him we wish to one day see a change in power.

My greatest wish is to one day see young people in power and occupying great positions in the country.

CONCLUSION

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to write about what i like and dislike about my country and thanks alot for reading my post . I am a patriotic Cameroon and all i dream is to one day see my country develop.

Que bonito es ver la hermosura de un país extranjero, con tierras tan fértiles y un pueblo dispuesto a salir adelante, a pesar de la guerra civil que están viviendo!

Por cierto, les deseo mucho éxito al fútbol en catar 2022 🥳...

Espero que la corrupción acabe en su país pronto, y puedan arreglar las carreteras, que Camerún pueda tener carreteras dignas... Saludos y muchas bendiciones!!! 🤗

You did well to give detail explaination about your country Cameroon which also happens to be my country. I love the way you explain the aspect of sports, I can boost that Cameroon has the strongest football team presently and I believe they will go far in the World cup at Qarta

That's really nice, I need to come to Cameroon, with all this description, is really a lovely place to visit indeed.

For real Cameroon is a nice and lovely place to visit and catch fun

Yeah, it is of no doubt Cameroons perform fantastic in the football part, quite some legends you've got on there, it's nice to hear Cameroon also have good products of soils.

I for one always believe the country speaks only french, but I am still wondering why the language speaks should be an issue in the first place, well, bad governance has always been a thing with most countries, if you line 10 users up, I am sure 9 out of 10 had the same complaint about its country governance, I hope the change we yearn for come sooner.

Great entry, by the way, all the best!!
