The installation rite which kick-started at Bali with Nwayalla Raymond led Executive taking over command and ended with Mbonifor Kennedy led Executive in Bafut was greased by the presence of thousands of CPDM militants. Performing the installation rite, in the seven sections that make up Mezam, CPDM Divisional Coordinator cum the Minister of Special Duties at the Presidency of the Republic, Paul Atanga Nji, who also triples as the Permanent Secretary of the Security Council, was categorical in his message.
At the Bujong hall Bafut which was full to capacity, Paul Atanga Nji called on the population to mend their unwavering support to the head of state and party chieftain, Paul Biya, to encourage his vision of transforming Cameroon to an emerging nation, come 2035. Hear him: “We have to consolidate the electoral base of the party and the head of state, H.E President Paul Biya is very clear. The Section Presidents are the people who run the party at the base and they have been empowered to reorganize the party at the base and they have been empowered to work hand in hand with the Mayors, Parliamentarians and Senators so that CPDM will continue to win big. And they have to be prepared for any future elections whenever they are called. He opined that the CPDM has virtually done everything for Cameroon most especially as he has brought stability, peace, unity, democracy and development to the country.
He called on the militants to above all, mobilize and register on the biometric registration registers massively so as to support the CPDM candidates.
The Mezam IV Section President, Mbonifor Kennedy it should be recalled in his speech, observed that the CPDM is growing from strength to strength in Bafut. He recalled how during the last municipal and legislative, the party scored 48%.
Harping on the ongoing biometric registration of the voters, YCPDM President Ngwa Kongho Lawrence told us that youths have massively registered ahead of the 2018 twin elections.
CPDM in Santa in Trauma
If there’s one thing the militants went home doffing their hats to Minister Paul Atanga Nji, it was the way he dished out “farotage” to dance groups. Yet CPDM militants of Santa missed this opportunity though. Apparently, the CPDM is suffering from diminishing returns in Santa where Fru Jonathan is Section President. Those who took the pains to attend the installation rite in Santa went home with the confirmation that the CPDM is down into the doldrums as only a handful of militants showed up. The Eye is aware that appointment of Regional and Divisional Co-ordinations in the CPDM party has brought out the prospect of distrust disrespect among members. In this climate of uncertainty, Santa seems to have had its fare share. The first thing is that Rt. Hon. Achidi Achu was ignored at the installation rite of the regional and divisional coordination units. For the first time, Rt. Hon. Achidi Achu was buried in the crowd at a CPDM meeting in Bamenda. Bahock Michael told us that the absence of JB Ndi will be a great hindrance to the evolution of the party. “You can see for yourself the impact of a visiting section President”, he concluded.
