Cameroon’s President Paul Biya disclosed on Friday his intention to run for re-election in October, aiming to extend his 36-year rule and keep his place on the roster of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.

The 85-year-old who came to power in 1982 when his predecessor retired is seeking a seventh term that could see him rule well into his 90s.

It would leave him in rare company after former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh were ousted in 2017. Of Africa’s living rulers, only Equatorial Guinea’s President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has ruled uninterrupted for longer.

He made this intention known in a tweet “I am willing to respond positively to your overwhelming calls. I will stand as Your Candidate in the upcoming presidential election”.

Biya, who has ruled virtually by decree since taking office, scrapped term limits from the constitution in 2008, allowing him to run again and prompting riots in which more than 40 people were killed.

 Meanwhile, African Union Commission chairman Moussa Faki said the organization would send an observation mission to the Oct. 7 polls, due to the peculiarity of the period for the Central African country and for Biya.
