AN ANGLOPHONE WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE POWER IN 1982 AFTER AHIDJO AND NOT PAUL BIYA

“It was an Anglophone who was to take power”
– Paul Biya has been in power since 1982

– He succeeded Ahmadou Ahidjo

– In doing so, he broke the plan

The presidential election in Cameroon is scheduled for 2025. The big question on everyone’s mind is whether the president of the Democratic Rally for the Cameroonian People (RDPC), Paul Biya (89 years old), will run again or not? For now, the party is not giving any indication.

In the meantime, the Secretary General for Communication of the SDF (Social Democratic Front) Littoral, Xavier Beleme Anang, says that it was not Paul Biya who was to replace Ahmadou Ahidjo at the time he took power.

The SDF activist was invited to the premises of ABK radio on Thursday, June 16, 2022. It is from there that he gave his point of view, leaning on the information he has, on the succession between Ahmadou Ahidjo sick at the time and Paul Biya who was once Prime Minister.

In reality, it was on November 4, 1982 that the President of the Republic of Cameroon, Ahmadou Ahidjo Babatoura, once aged fifty-eight (58), announced his resignation to deal with his deteriorating health. As provided for by the national constitution, Prime Minister Paul Biya, now forty-nine (49) years old, has taken his place. Xavier Beleme Anang is convinced that this was not the way to proceed.

In 1982, when President Ahmadou Ahidjo left power, it was an anglophone who was supposed to take power because that was what was agreed in Foumban, but the agreement was violated and it stipulated that when a president was francophone, the Prime Minister had to be anglophone and vice versa. Today the President of the Republic is francophone; the President of the Senate is francophone and the President of the National Assembly is francophone.

Anglophone crisis and John Fru Ndi’s retirement

Extremists (Ambazonians and the government) are managing this crisis face to face and this is what justifies the catastrophic outcome of this crisis. Like all crises in the world, it is the negotiating table and the voice of dialogue that should be privileged. The origin of this crisis is a problem of non-compliance with the Foumban agreements.

Chairman John Fru Ndi is no longer the chairman of the 1990s; today he is old and ill. For thirty-two (32) years, he was at the head of the party and at the next congress he will hand over.
