Cameroon: Ahidjo’s daughter crusades for Biya in Bamenda

The daughter of the late former President of Cameroon Amadou Ahidjo has tasked youths in the North West Region to renew their faith in Paul Biya and give him a 100 percent vote at the Presidential election on October 7, 2018.

Addressing  a cross-section of over 500 youths who came from the four corners of the Region at the hall of the Ayaba Hotel on Wednesday September 26, Aminatou Ahidjo said Paul Biya’s experience makes him the ideal candidate to steer Cameroon to emergence.

“Ours, it is the choice of wisdom, choice of experience, the choice of peace, the choice of social and economic development, choice of national unity. This choice in my eyes is just one person who incarnates it, and that is president Paul Biya”, Aminatou Ahidjo told the youths.

In an open question and answer session, with the youths, Aminatou Ahidjo promised to channel the worries of these youths to the Head of State and assured them the youths will remain an integral part of the Etoudi chieftain’s if they join forces to vote for him on October 7.

The population needs to brave fear, vote and secure their votes on October 7 as a show of Cameroon’s strong democracy that has been strengthened and fostered over the years by Paul Biya.

“Through this act, we need to show them our determination by standing on the side of the liberty of the Republic,” the daughter of the late President Ahmadou Ahidjo said.

The creation of the University of Bamenda with the Polytechnic, a Higher Teachers Training College, its Faculty of Medicine, the University Hospital Center of Bamenda under construction shows the Head of State’s strong attachment to the North West Region, Mme Ahidjo said.

The rehabilitation of the Babadjou-Bamenda roads in progress just like the construction of the Ring Road and Low Cost Housing just strengthen the fact that “Bamenda is Paul Biya’s second home”,  Aminatou Ahidjo said adding that a vote for him on October 7 will be a bold step to accomplishing his major projects in the region.

She also used the opportunity to address the crisis rocking the Anglophone regions as she acknowledged the problems stem from the historic past of the North West and South West regions but saluted government’s efforts at solving the problems raised by the lawyers and teachers.

She regretted the fact that several lives have been loct in the course of the process and urged Cameroonians in that part of the country to be peace-loving and work to promoting peace which has always been the values preached by the Head of State.

“I salute here the memories of elements of our defence forces that have fallen with guns in their hands defending the nation. I salute also the memories of all those who have been brutally killed. In reality, this war affects the entire population of these Regions, victims of exactions, of kidnappings, promote stealing and all forms of violence”, Aminatou Ahidjo re-echoed.

Aminatou Ahidjo’s two-day stay in  Bamenda, took her to Fon Angwafor of Mankon and to Fon Azehfor III, where she stated clearly that only President Paul Biya, can bring to an end the current socio-political impasse plaguing the English Speaking Regions of Cameroon.
