The 27th anniversary of the CPDM was celebrated in Misaje with over 3000 people in attendance. At about 3 pm, the Misaje Market Square where the celebration took place was jammed to capacity. There was jubilation and fanfare when Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry Secretary of State for Mines, Industries and Technological Development showed up at the ceremonial ground.
Welcoming militants and sympathizers, Donga Mantung IV Section President, Sammy Mbgatta announced that the party was growing stronger and stronger in Misaje. Contrary to rumours, he told militants that the party is waxing strong and reiterated that “there is no trouble in Misaje CPDM”. He also used the opportunity to frown at propagators of clannish politics which helps to tear people apart and not unite them. “My strongest fight is to win in both the council and legislative, I do not care who is the MP or the mayor”. He called on the population to be vigilant not to fall prey to political pretenders who are hungry looking and need something for their stomachs.
Enters Dr. Fuh Calistus
Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry, Secretary of State for Mines, Industries and Technological Development has urged the people of Misaje to show substantiation of loyalty to the CPDM and President Biya by registering massively when registration kick-starts. He said that far from what prophets of doom have been saying, the CPDM he told the population is reaffirming its vocation as a rally party which is open to modernity. He emphasized that the CPDM is bent on consolidating democracy in the country, with the main ambition of ensuring their individual and collective well-being. This, he said could be seen through numerous development projects Ako/ Misaje has benefited. “Power” he said “should be used in signing projects that will change lives and not by raising the hand in the air”. To confirm this, Dr. Fuh Calistus unveiled that Prime Minister Philemon Yang has signed for the opening of the road linking Noni to Misaje through Kamala hill which will be extended to the Nigerian border passing through Sabongida. He also made mentioned of the road Kidoun- Akweto, Kanchi-Bem and Dumbu-Mayokila which will be constructed.
On the political anarchy in Donga Mantung Division, he told the people of Misaje that he will not allow Nkambe and Ndu to sink because even the Bible teaches us that “the devils comes only to deceive” and when he announced that he would not allow Donga Mantung to any opposition, some politicians got fever. “Some went as far as insulting me and calling me names, but I have vowed and I stand to rescue Nkambe and Ndu”. He challenged those of the opposition who pass time criticizing to show proof of their capability because before he became MP, he had financed more than three water schemes “I sponsored the Chunghe, Kamane and Dumbu water schemes, let anyone who wants to be the mayor or MP here show you what he/she can do. I know that MPs of the opposition usually kneel in front of Ministers in Yaounde to beg for projects. For example Nkambe and Ndu have the lowest Public Investment Budget-BIP this year” he added. He asked the population whether they would like be where the power to sign projects is or where they will have to kneel in front of Ministers to beg for projects. The upcoming elections according to Dr. Fuh Calistus is a referendum for the people to decide whether to stay where there is real power or join the bandwagon of beggars.
