President Biya Can No Longer Lead Cameroon says Christian Tumi

Cameroon is once again preparing to go for presidential elections scheduled for November 2018. In office since 1982, the current president of Cameroon Mr. Paul Biya seems to be preparing to run for a new seven-year term.

“We will watch the CAN 2019 championship together “.

Since he became the head of the Cameroonian executive on November 6, 1982 after the resignation of his predecessor Ahmadou Ahidjo, Paul Biya was for the first time ever democratically elected President of Cameroon In 1992. As a result of this election, which was opposed by the opposition, the president has been subsequently re-elected three times in succession in 1997, 2004 and 2011. The 85-year-old now has 35 Experience as head of state , and there is every reason to believe that Mr Biya will run again in November 2018 election for a fifth term.

The words he used in December 8, 2016 during the reception in honor of the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon at state house Etoudi suggest so . According to an article by Armand Ougock of titled “Cameroon: 2018 Presidential, Biya breaks his silence and gives clues” published on December 08, 2016, the president implied that he would still be at the head of the Countries after the November 2018 election by stating that : “We will watch the CAN 2019 championship together ”

In addition to this, The two unprecedented visits of the president to the Ahidjo stadium during the 2016 Women’s CAN are interpreted by political analysts as a clear indication of Biya’s new political ambitions. According to an unimpeachabl source , the president has already started his election campaign.

Voices are already opposing Biya!

If Mr Biya is not tired of power, it will be very easy for him to preserve the presidency and lead Cameroon for.the next seven years . But,Some important voices are clearly very opposed to President Biya’s wishes to regain power. for example, the former Archbishop of Douala Christian Tumi.

In an interview with Jeune Afrique Magazine, “Cardinal Tumi gave his opinion on future elections in Cameroon” dated 6 March 2016, Cardinal Tumi thinks that at the age of 83, he will be too old run the affairs of the most state. He urges the current Cameroonian president should not to be fooled by the bad advice of his entourage who are asking him to be candidate .

In addition, there are also complains to prevent Paul Biya from renewing his mandate. In an interview granted to Prince Aristide Ngueukam in the Free Forum ( in French -le numéro de Forum Libre paru)published on April 12, 2016, Corantin Talla,who lead the Yaoundé University student strike of the 90s, (still known as “General Schwarzkopf a name he got from leading the students revolt) “for example, announced his candidacy.

He aims to” … propose a credible alternative to the bad governance of the Biya regime … “.

Also , an article published January 3, 2017 on the website Of Jeune Afrique. Olivier Liffran announced the candidature of the famous Franco/Cameroonian playwright Dieudonné M’bala M’bala.

Above all,It is expected that the next president will make much effort to correct the social inequalities in Cameroon, which has been the cry English-speaking population in recent weeks.
