Garga Haman Adji, Presidential candidate of the Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) at last Sunday’s poll in Cameroon, says the likes of Akere Tabeng Muna and Maurice Kamto should not be in a haste to occupy the nation’s Presidential palace when official results are still awaited.
The former Minister made the pronouncement in an interview granted the State broadcaster, CRTV, on Monday, October 8, 2018, shortly after Professor Maurice Kamto of the CRM party announced to journalists that he has won the October 7 Presidential election.
According to Garga, not even incumbent President, Paul Biya, has the right to claim victory when the Constitutional Council is yet to proclaim official results.
He said for now, Biya too is like any other candidate who contested Sunday’s vote.
He regretted that both Akere and Kamto are refined lawyers who have decided to go against the rules of the Presidential contest.
Citing himself, Garga said, his 2018 bid is the third attempt to become President of the Republic of Cameroon.
He said elections are a contest whose outcome must be respected by those who accepted to participate in the process.
To Garga, Cameroonian youths are wise to the extent that no one can play over their mentality to send them to the streets. He called for restraint and urged all the candidates in this year’s election to hold their peace until official results are declared.
