Our main subscribers include among others:  Diplomatic Missions in the country, the Presidency of the Republic, the Senate, the National Assembly, and the Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministry of Finance, CONAC, FEICOM and a host of other Ministries. The Guardian Post also enjoys a wide-readership; made up of the large Nigerian community in Cameroon, thanks to a regular page it runs on News from Nigeria.

To our advantage is the fact that The Guardian Post is the only English Language Newspaper in Cameroon that runs incisive Editorials on burning issues in all its editions.

Two renowned English Language media organs, the Bamenda-based weekly Chronicle Newspaper, and The Eye, a widely-visited online publication, also recently honoured The Guardian Post with: “Cameroon’s Best-Selling English Language Newspaper Award.”  On the 24th of January 2020, The Guardian Post officially inaugurated its newly constructed Head Office edifice situated in the Efoulan Lac neighbourhood in Yaounde.
