In the field of politics, He was a major player in reunification in the 1960s, and was one of the country’s memory keepers and author of the book “My Odyssey: History of Cameroon’s Reunification”.

He also chaired the board of directors of Cameroon Telemunications (CAMTEL), and had resigned from this post in March 2018, the year of his centenary on earth.
