For this political party, while some can work in the civil service longer, others should have access to it for longer.
On Wednesday, December 30, 2020, the Head of State signed a decree harmonizing the retirement of civil servants. The decree provides that the retirement age for civil servants is from January 1, 2021, set at 60 years for staff in categories A and B and at 55 years for staff in categories C and D.
The measure is extended to staff benefiting on the date of entry into force of the decree, a formal extension of valid activity. The decree repeals the previous provisions. This harmonization of the retirement age was long awaited by Cameroonian officials. It is therefore like an injustice which has just been corrected by the President of the Republic.
On the social network Facebook, the Cameroonian Party for National Reconciliation (PCRN) warmly welcomes the Head of State’s decree. Conveying his congratulations to the beneficiaries.
“However, it would be fair for him to sign a new decree extending the age for admission to civil service exams. While some can work in the public service longer, others should have access to it for longer, “writes Anne Féconde Noah, spokesperson for Cabral Libii and the PCRN.
“32 years old (…) that’s far too fair”
For her, 32 as the age limit for entering the public service is far too fair. Especially “with regard to the socio-economic realities of our country, the configuration of the education system, and the new retirement ages. When recruiting the 25,000 (admittedly contract workers), the maximum age was set at 40, so it’s doable. ”
In the case of civil servants, believes this political formation, to grant an extension of 5 years on the age of admission to competitive examinations in order to remain in the same proportion would do justice to the youngest.
