By the end of the decade, Biya landed the post of Secretary-General of the Presidency (1968 -1975), after which he served as Prime Minister of Cameroon (1975 – 1982). Eventually, he took over the Presidency from Ahidjo upon his unexpected resignation in 1982. As e ruler of the extremely poor country (with 48% of Cameroonian's citizens living below the poverty line), Biya is said to belong to the list of leaders with ill-gotten wealth.

What's more, he has made sure to keep Cameroon's close relationship with France, the country's former colonial ruler.
