Snap Cameroon Presidential Polls is Electoral Fraud!

 Fellow Cameroonians, the press of late forecasts President Paul Biya pressing for early presidential elections in Cameroon for frivolous reasons which include Boko Haram, hosting of female and male Africa football marches in 2017 and 2019!
In democracies, for any governance date to be changed, the country must be in total crisis – Nigeria head quarter of Boko Haram terrorists recently organized a successful presidential and allied national polls. Countries worldwide respect their electoral and governance calendars irrespective of whether they are organizing /hosting international or national sport or other events. Meaningful nations and their leaders conduct elections and plan events out of their mandates irrespective of whether or not there are terrorist attacks. Cameroon however is different – an individual here stays in power as president for over 33 years (incumbent Paul Biya) for flimsy, absurd reasons. Now precipitated elections are to be held because of terrorist attacks and football matches taking place in Cameroon. Such peculiar snap elections are again rigged in favour of the Biya ruling party! In the era of Biya predecessor – President Ahmadou Ahidjo long stay in office was justified by false claims of maintaining national unity against UPC terrorists who were instead Cameroon independence freedom fighters. This was to see, thousands of nationalist Cameroonians killed and multiparty democracy scrapped from Cameroon. The French presidents then despite practicing democracy in France shamelessly helped to perpetuate the Cameroon dictator and used our country as their farm and market. Today incumbent president of France - Francois Hollande apologizes for those past atrocities of the 1950s, 1960s…..
We advice Biya not to tamper with the electoral calendar of 2018 for Cameroon presidential and allied polls! We advice Biya to scrap the pro CPDM ELECAM that passes for Cameroon elections managing body, we counsel the regime to revamp the constitution to ensure separation of powers. Mr. Biya should allow smooth succession and continuation of the country’s governance, and activities and event by his successor irrespective of whether he/she (the successor) comes from CPDM or other Cameroon political parties - this history has shown practiced by successful civilizations. Should our advice fall on deaf ears, as usual, I, Felix Teche Nyamusa together with other meaningful Cameroonians will lead Cameroon to freedom as was recently done on President Blaise Compaore of Burkina Faso (27years on seat). Nigeria, south Africa, the developed world are glaring examples of countries that have led their citizens to progress and freedom through force where their leadership remained intransigent to good governance and the people’s wish. Let Biya be told the open secret that Cameroonians are aware that our parliament is rubberstamp. Any decision taken by these socalled legislators who got their mandates due to regime electoral fraud is regarded with contempt. Summoning the parliament to pass anti people decision including snap polls ahead of the 2018 presidential and other polls is worthless!
