Families, friends, colleagues and distinguished guests were all invited to take part in this ceremony. The stage was set, the headquarters building was embellished with the finest decor.  Everyone looked gorgeous. The courtyard at the back of the building became so narrow to accommodate all the lovely people who came in numbers, with bouquets, to congratulate and encourage their loved ones.

It was two O'clock p.m. when the General Manager, Mr. OKIE Johnson NDOH arrived with his distinguished guests namely; Mr. Ibrahim TALBA MALLA, Minister of Public Contracts, Mr. EVOU MEKOU Dieudonné, Vice-Governor of the Bank of Central African States (BEAC).

Following all customary formalities, the guest speaker for the day, Mr. Ivo Partem, began reading the various decrees appointing the new executives approved by the Board of Directors.

It all began with appointments of Technical Advisers, Directors, Sub-Directors, Heads of various Services, and Heads of various Offices. The General Manager in his introductory speech congratulated the newly appointed executives, he enlightened guests on a brief history of the institution especially the various decrees of the Head of State changing the status of the HPSF from a Directorate to a General Directorate. Also, he made honorary mentions of great pillars (Mr. TALBA MALLA) who contributed immensely to what the HPSF is today.

A shout expressing happiness, tears of joy, and a sigh of relief "Finally, I have been recognised!!!" were feelings that could be felt throughout the ceremony. Newly appointed staff could be recognized by their emotions which could not be hidden. The HPSF noticeboard had yet again been published with staff that are very young, bright, dynamic and talented.

They have always been present at their designated work stations, they have stood the test of punctuality, discipline, performance, and have shown their respect for hierarchy which had always been their daily routine. Due to these, they have been rewarded. "We are very grateful for this sign of confidence, bestowed on us by management ", says Laure, a newly appointed Assistant Research Officer.

The December 23rd ceremony was also an opportunity for the General Manager to extend his sincere congratulations to the entire staff while encouraging them individually and collectively to make "efficiency and performance their motivating factor".  After the General Manager’s famous ritual "I declare you installed in your new position", celebrations continued with photo shoots and rejoicing in the homes of the newly promoted staff.  It is worth noting that the newly appointed staff have great tasks ahead of them because celebrating is indeed wonderful, but the best is yet to come.
