The Scribe of the Central Committee of the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement(CPDM) Jean Nkuete, has lambasted other candidates to the Presidential elections for absconding from the Anglophone Regions as campaigns dwindle to voting day.
Jean Nkuete chided the opposition parties as he went visiting in Bamenda on Tuesday, October 2. The party Scribe, who was treated to a befitting welcome at the esplanade of the Bamenda Congress Hall questioned the whereabouts of the other candidates across the Region.
Nkuete spiked the candidates of busy campaigning in other peaceful Regions of the country forgetting to known that the people of the North West Region deserve peace.
The former Minister used the Bamenda meeting to evaluate the pace of candidate Biya’s campaign across the North West. He urged his comrades to work towards ensuring that, the CPDM candidate records more votes across the Region.
Nkuete’s visit is part of a national tour of the various Regions to evaluate the campaign of the CPDM candidate ahead of the October 7 Presidential poll. He thus went to Bamenda as the National Coordinator of the party’s campaign activities.
Addressing the gathering, Philemon Yungi Yang, told Nkuete that the Regional Committee of the CPDM is poised to deliver victory to candidate Biya, despite threats from separatists.
Felix Mbayu, Minister Delegate at the Ministry of External Relations in Charge of Relations with the Commonwealth told the State media that the turnout was a show of solidarity between candidate Biya and CPDM militants of the North West Region.
Tuesday’s political rally is the third for the CPDM party in Bamenda since campaigns began on September 22. On that day, North West CPDM Regional Coordinator, Philemon Yang, launched campaigns for the CPDM under tight security. A week after, Aminato Ahidjo, daughter of Cameroon’s pioneer President, stormed the restive town drumming support for candidate Biya.
This far, no opposition candidate has dared to organise a campaign rally in the North West Region.
But for Akere Tabeng Muna of the Popular Front for Development(PFD) party who has staged a campaign meeting on Limbe in the South West Region, no other opposition candidate has dared.
Candidate Maurice Kamto of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement(MRC) first promised to visit, but reclined owing to separatists’ threats. He then surfaced promising to come campaigning before shifting grounds to pay a visit to the Region if voted President.
Garga Haman Adji of the Alliance for Democracy and Development(ADD) has promised visiting, but his caravan is yet to be spotted in any part of the restive Regions.
