Ahmadou Babatoura Ahidjo (24 August 1924 – 30 November 1989) was a Cameroonian politician who was the first President of Cameroon, holding the office from 1960 until 1982. Ahidjo played a major role in Cameroon’s independence from France as well as reuniting the French and English-speaking parts of the country.

The current President of Cameroon is Paul Biya, since 6 November 1982. This makes it a total of two presidents who have ruled Cameroon.
