Incumbent President, Paul Biya, says he will be honoured if Cameroonians renew their confidence in him to serve the nation for another mandate.
He was speaking on Sunday, October 7, 2018, after casting his vote for the country’s next President.
Candidate Biya made the declaration to reporters at the esplanade of the Government Primary School, GS Bastos in the Nation’s capital Yaoude.
At a few minutes beyond midday, the incumbent President accompanied by his wife, Chantal Biya, arrived the Bastos polling station to perform their civic duty.
He told journalists that serving a nation is a great honour. He expressed satisfaction that the exercise was going on without hitches across the national territory.
The man who has ruled Cameroon for 36 years and still seeking to extend his rule said, it would be a good thing if the peaceful conduct observed this far is seen till the end of the exercise.
Observers predict that given the President’s robust campaign across the territory, he is likely to succeed himself. If Biya wins the elections, it means he will rule Cameroon for 43 years by the time the mandate expires.
In the event of such, the rising faces on the opposition front will only have to wait till 2025 to try their luck. Besides Biya, seven other candidates are in the race to become Cameroon’s net President.
