This Will Make Anglophones Sad - I Will Stay In Power Until 2024 says Cameroon President Paul Biya

Obviously, the ghost of Ahmadou Ahidjo haunts Paul Biya. He is afraid that his corpse will suffer the same fate as that which he reserved for the remains of his illustrious predecessor.

Because he decided to die in power, despite the advanced state of putrefaction in which Cameroon finds himself, he can afford to taunt Cameroonians through statements revealing the smallness of a character, without ambition and without vision.

It's been a few years since the Cameroonian philosopher and essayist Hubert Mono Ndjana published a pamphlet on Paul Biya's little words. In a laudatory tone, the intellectual Rdpciste praised the communication style of the chairman of the Rdpc. Nothing wrong with that when you are an activist of the Rdpc. Even if the critics of the regime in place had immediately objected that the author magnified the derisory verb, that is to say a discursive governance where speeches and words are never translated into action.
This Will Make Anglophones Sad - I Will Stay In Power Until 2024 says Cameroon President Paul Biya
At least, the contribution of the "Grand Prof" suggests that we must take very seriously the little words of Paul Biya, often launched as unconscious jokes. In this, it can be credited with a minimum of common sense from the point of view of the analysis of the catastrophic governance of man of November 6, 1982.

At the time when the end of a mandate or of a useless septennate, during which the provisional tenant of Etoudi behaved like a tourist in transit in Cameroon, in particular in Yaounde, one can, to go to the evidence, summon his words which exalt the perpetual government , held during his recent state visit to Italian land during the second half of March 2017.

Faced with spectators whose sordid remarks made it hilarious, Paul Biya, like a tropical Ubu King spreading in the face of the world his dreamlike delirium said: "It is rare today to find a government that lasts 30 years. A way for him to taunt the Cameroonian people and make fun of the Western Democrats who have understood that the progress of their country and the well-being of their fellow citizens go through the establishment of strong democratic institutions and regular alternation to power .

It is not for the first time that he makes fun of Cameroonians and feels contempt for them in the world while bulging his chest like King Kong triumphing over a people in rags (he has) hungry, emasculated by alcohol and official propaganda, before leaving it at the mercy of the multinationals of God. Respondent, on July 3, 2015, to a question from Gérard Grizbec, journalist at France 2, who asked him about his longevity in power and his intentions for the presidential election of 2018, Paul Biya smirked said; "[...] does not last in power who wants, but lasts who can." He added: "[...] I am not at the head of the state by force. I did not acquire power in a dictatorial way, I was always elected by the people [...] ".

By using the adverb always, Paul Biya tries to mystify the Cameroonians and his interlocutor by letting him believe that he came to power by an election. Yet the reality is different and everyone knows he is the constitutional successor of his illustrious predecessor Ahmadou Ahidjo. In other words, he will only come to power on November 6, 1982, by the sole will of Ahmadou Ahidjo. Consequently he was never elected president of the Republic of Cameroon, the elections he has so far organized having always been only rituals of attestation, vain attempts to legitimize a power graciously offered on a dish of gold and / or diamond.

Beyond the condescending diplomatic laughter of Westerners present in the room, which are the ignoble experience of the ebb of Negro governance characterized by the over-dimensioning of the presidential egos as the longevity of power contrasts with the added value brought in terms of vision and political ambition, raising the standard of living of its fellow citizens, reinforcing the democratic rule of law, economic prosperity and exaltation of the State strategist, this statement, which is shocking to the conscience young people and supporters of alternation as a dogma of regulation of world governance, denies the conceited complacency of sincere or opportunistic thuriferae of Paul Biya.

It reveals the mystification that they maintain around the "vacationer in power" (Stephen Smith) by foggy qualifiers such as: "enigmatic man", "providential man carrying a divine political project for Cameroon", "old wise man" Africa, etc., in short by a catalog of words participating in the deification of the immortal president of the Rdpc.

The Brenda Point Case of ambition or vision for Cameroon, even less, say bad language (?), For his own offspring of which the Brenda Affair relayed by social networks has unveiled, if we believe the critics of the lion man; a sad deficit of supervision and education of his offspring, from the moral and ethical point of view.

To succeed in this outrageous project, for a man brought to the high office of the Republic since 1962, and who says they did the humanities and graduate studies of political science, the opposite of the small certified, postal agent that was Ahidjo, the man of the Renewal has nothing but contempt for the popular legitimacy, since even his emancipators whom Michel Roger Emvana met in the frame of his book entitled Paul Biya, the secrets of the power, affirm without blinking that it is the secular esotericism that keeps it in power. A curiosity all the same, for a former seminarian, moreover son of catechist.

For the confidants of a personal friend of Paul Biya party beyond the grave, the eternal power of the current occupant of the palace Etoudi is an obsession. Since he said in his lifetime: "the president has the ambition to die in power. Those who dream of seeing him pass on power to someone like himself from Ahidjo will wait a long time. This is his only reason to live. You have to organize accordingly. And he who has real ambitions must either confront him or wait quietly for his death. "

The words of Titus Edzoa corroborate those of this personal friend of Paul Biya. In an interview given to the newspaper Mutations (n ​​° 043 of April 28, 1997) after his resignation from the post of Minister of Public Health, the former Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic does not use circumlocution to denounce the inertia, immobility, carelessness and haphazard management of the system. The former political prisoner who spent 17 years in the secret jails of the State Secretariat for Defense (Sed) said: "[...]

Nothing works. It is said: Move, move! He's not moving. He does not work. You can not imagine how much effort is being made internally to make things evolve. To bring the new Constitution to a successful conclusion, it was very tough. He did not even want to limit the warrants. And when you explain that we must limit the warrants to force the statesmen to give themselves a program of actions established in time, we charge you rebel.

People imagine that they will govern without a timetable. It is not possible. Programs are required over a period of time. There, we are obliged to produce results.

These remarks make it possible to understand the motivations that drove in 2008 Paul Biya to proceed to the revision of the constitutional law of January 18, 1996 in order to lift the lock of the limitation of the presidential term.

It is also, rightly, the most relevant explanation and understanding of the joke launched on Wednesday, June 9, 2004 after the rumor of his death. In front of his many supporters and sympathizers to greet him, he said ironically, "You greet the ghost." And continue by taunting his detractors. "I was on a private visit to Europe. I learned like everyone else that I was dead. Before going on: "It seems that there are some who are interested in my funeral. Well, tell them that I'll meet them in a couple of decades. "

Faced with Paul Biya's declared desire to run for another term in 2018, this release of Paul Biya in 2004 revealed all its meaning. In easy French, he wanted to say to Cameroonians: "I will stay in power as long as my health and age allow me until 2024, at age 91".

It is not surprising that his ministers, warned by this logic of unlimited presidential governance and based on inertia and intrigue, also seek to last forever in their posts, using artifices such as flattery support motions and deference, the governance of announcement effects, etc. A minister still in office who had spontaneously become an adviser to one of his colleagues in the current government pointed out to him: "Your problem is that you are trying to work and make everyone know that you are doing something. We are not appointed by the boss for any work. Be non-existent like me and you will stay at your post for as long as possible. "

In such a context, how can we attract Western investors who, better than anyone else, know that perpetual government leads to uncertainty regarding the instability it creates and the decrepitude of the governance of a point? from the perspective of democratic and republican ethics?

How to convince the seriousness of his governance a Pope who runs an institution limiting to 75 years the retirement of bishops and who is also seduced by his predecessor, who resigned from his seat for reasons related to his age when nothing do not have to?

In the end, these questions make it possible to understand why all the drinking bouts organized since the beginning of this useless septennancy have so far had no impact on the daily lives of Cameroonians. The Invest in Cameroon conference, Paul Biya's Italian tourism and other initiatives and approaches of the same nature are really nothing more than gadgets. The return of the Fmi in force is the obvious proof of the catastrophic and patrimonial management of the common heritage by a clique to gargantuan bulimia.
