There were also those who, apparently assured of his victory against an inconsistent opposition, urged him to pass his hand. Bishop Kleda, President of the Episcopal Conference, Cardinal Christian Tumi, foreign diplomats and political leaders begged him not to represent himself. Nnom Ngui’s silence cast doubt over his intentions.

At the same time as the calls of the militants of his party, the President of the Republic has certainly also heard for three years and especially at the end of this term that some wanted to transform at the end of the reign, the unjust accusations, the bitter and acidic advice of true and false friends, the apocalyptic predictions of enlightened prophets of misfortune.



The political agenda is only half written, and no one could have foreseen these happy or unhappy events and even the conjunction of the two that probably dictated Paul Biya’s decision to represent himself. We know for a decade, the longevity of power is in the eyes of Westerners, from Obama to Holland the crime of lèse-democracy of African leaders.

Paul Biya could not escape after 34 years in power to be presented as the counter-model say as the waiting for the candidate of the Democratic Rally of the People of Cameroon in the presidential election of October 7, 2018 has been long to unveil.

Paul Biya could not escape after 34 years the power to be presented as the counter-model of a ready-to-wear democratic that ignores and infantilizes the choice of peoples. The president had already decided the question and the criticism by sheltering behind the legitimate possibility that regularly gave him the Cameroonian people to remain in power. In fact, Paul Biya had only the choice to represent himself.



Its definitive exit from the scene if it was projected a few months ago, could have been done on the bravos of the war almost won against Boko Haram. But the crisis in the North-West and South-West regions seems to have deeply affected the President of the Republic, who has since multiplied the responses to the marginalization of Anglophones.

He muzzled the hawks of his regime and prescribed the listening and the concrete resolution of the soluble problems. He was certainly not going to leave Cameroon and his people in the middle of the ford while the whole world urged him to go to the end of the dialogue, political participation and decentralization to satisfy the inhabitants of both regions bruised .



The presidential election is the meeting of a man with his people. Cameroonians who know well the advanced age of their president and estimate the time he will have spent at the head of Cameroon will say next October 7 if the old lion or young and young wildcat fighting him for the direction of Cameroon must to overcome the crisis in the South-West and North-West regions and successfully organize the African Cup of Nations.

Because if there are many other motivations that led Paul Biya to represent himself, these two projects, if they are completed and delivered, will prepare a release of scene inscribed in all the cases in the time.
