The Feast Will Take Place!

15 mars 2017

Section presidents, their teams and militants are unwavering; the 32nd anniversary of the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM) will be celebrated accordingly despite the prevailing atmosphere in the North West and South West Regions.

The anniversary is a day for militants to rejoice and jubilate like anyone who adds one more year. It is also a time of stocktaking and planning, all built on the cardinals of maintaining the Party in power through winning elections and helping the CPDM run-government to improve on the living conditions of Cameroonians. But the feast this year is particular because of the uncertainty in the Anglophone zone germinated on the strike by teachers and lawyers and watered by extremists and manipulators. March 24th 2017 will be an occasion for the militants to demonstrate their adherence to the cause of the National President Paul Biya that Cameroon is “one and indivisible”. Grass root leaders and militants will show their valor in the face of threats from the “enemies of the state.” Back in the early days of multi-party politics in Cameroon, the radical opposition at the time intimidated militants of the CPDM and faithful ones never gave in. Now, is another chance to reaffirm their loyalty to the Party of “rigour and moralization,” born in Bamenda, headquarters of the North West where the psychosis dominates.


Besides shows of numbers and political statements, the Party officials know that 2018, the year of elections, is around the corner and the CPDM has to consolidate its position. The weaponry to win the war is votes. Section executives plan to call in the election management body to register potential voters. Moreover, it would also be an occasion to educate the militants on republican values of peace and solidarity, and build armor against secessionists and other foes of a one and indivisible Cameroon. Because the anniversary will take place in a context of a few questioning the unitary status of Cameroon all the section presidents L’Action talked to, say preparations are ongoing with emphasis laid on the mobilization facet. “Militants must come out en masse on the anniversary of the Party and nothing will stop us,” the charismatic section president of Menchum I (Wum) Chuo Cyprian Akwo confirmed. Like him, other party leaders at the sections are unbending on the celebration of the anniversary this year. If a repeat of the December 8, 2016 scenario when an instigated population hindered a CPDM rally in Bamenda during which the Party was to give its stance on the situation of the Anglophone zone, the militants need to ignore and avoid provocations in an exemplary behavior.

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.
