Regional Head in Kumbo Today

09 mai 2018

Philemon Yang, Head of the Central Committee Regional Permanent Delegation for the North West is on a tour of the divisions to mobilize militants. 

He will be in Kumbo, headquarters of Bui Division today. His first lap took him to Wum and Fundong yesterday. He will meet with elite, sections executives, sub-sections executives, mayors of CPDM-run councils and parliamentarians. Philemon Yang, also Prime Minister and Head of Government wants to encourage militants and fine-tune strategies to pull out crowds of CPDM sympathizers and supporters at all the ceremonial grounds in the region on May 20 - the 46th National Day.

 

In the North West Region it is increasingly difficult to openly associate with the party. Assailants ‘fighting’ for a breakaway of the North West and South West from Cameroon into a state named ‘ambazonia’ target members of the CPDM Party. Recently, a sub-section president Lenyuy of Kikiakom in Bui Division was pulled out of his house in the early hours and shot dead by unidentified gunmen and his house burnt. The houses and a car of two militants were burnt in Meluf in the same division. Hierarchy of the party in the region, fear threats and intimidation from the armed separatists could ward off militants from taking part in the National Day celebrations. 

 

However, local party authorities in the region who spoke to us and refused to be named are worried the trip of the Prime Minister could be seen as provocation by the assailants. Who could undertake more attacks on CPDM militants, sympathizers and supporters after Philemon Yang drives back to Yaoundé. According to them discrete meetings are preferable because the safety upon return to the villages, of the grassroots executives without security detail is uncertain. 

 

Meanwhile, supporters of the move, say the coming of the Head of the Regional Permanent Delegation is necessary because he will have a first-hand report of the state of affairs of the party in all sections and treat worries immediately. Moreover, according to them it is in tough times that loyalty of a militant is tested like wisdom in a furnace.

 

Philemon Yang’s visit is the first to the region after the defeat of the CPDM at March 25th senatorial polls although the party had more councilors than opponents. Several reasons are blamed for the defeat that seemed unlikely. He certainly wants to make hey while the sun shines and avoid another defeat of the party in next elections: municipal, legislative, presidential and maybe regional.

Ahead of planned CPDM regional seminars, it is difficult not to think of the importance of these trainings meant for militants at a time when their commitment to the party is tested by the current situation.

Amongst the many things the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement has on its to-do list, is readying the terrain for the legislative and municipal elections slated to hold this year.

As the ruling party, the CPDM shone by its achievements in 2018, the most glaring being the overwhelming victory of its candidate Paul Biya at the presidential elections. It didn’t take a day’s work for such an outcome. In fact, the Party invested adequate time and resources to galvanise its militants towards a favourable ending. In the congratulatory speech read by Jean Nkuété, Secretary General of the Central Committee when the results of the elections were proclaimed by the Constitutional Council, he acknowledged the unalloyed support of the militants, the commitment to see the goals set by the Party attained as reasons for the victory the Party was recording. It was in this light that he beckoned militants to remain loyal and unswerving in lending their support to the Head of State in his quest to consolidate peace and unity and foster the growth of the nation.
It is in the same spirit that the Party’s hierarchy has begun laying ground work for the twin elections expected this year. The maturity of Cameroonians during the October 7 elections as saluted by many observers is telling of the growing interest the population is showing in this regard. This explains why the CPDM is setting out early on the journey, tending an ear to its militants and meting out advice on the animation of the Party in the grassroots. Cognizant of the stakes this year, the Party is ready as always to cede to Elecam’s call to attain 10million registered voters by massively sensitizing its militants on the field. 
Thanks to the various statutory meetings to be held by the sections and subsections as provided for by the Basic Texts of the Party, the hierarchy is intent on making everyone of them count. So far, many sections have been meeting to draw their roadmaps for the year, bearing in mind that the terrain is not as smooth with several political parties seeking places at the National Assembly and in the various councils. According to Jean Nkuété, in renewing their confidence in Paul Biya, Cameroonians are expecting him to manage the affairs of the state in a manner that would favour the common man. This is thus a call for militants to contribute each in their capacities in accomplishing the tasks set to keep the coals of the party alive, for as the SG said, during the National President’s new mandate, the CPDM ought to be better Paul Biya’s most sure rear guard.
