I'm not from another era, I'm even ahead of some young people, says Garga Haman Adji on RFI


Interviewed on August 21, 2018 on Radio France Internationale (RFI) about his old age (74 years) and that of his society project for the presidential election of October 7, 2018, Garga Haman Adji said from the beginning: "No, democracy does not grow old ". And to increase: "there must be a political alternation, regardless of age. I'm not from another era, I'm even ahead of some young people. Not considering himself out of step with his time, the candidate of the ADD in the presidential election of October 7, decided for his third participation (2004, 2011, 2018) in the ballot, to brandish nevertheless his project of 2004 and to defend it on the antennas of the French public radio.

On the institutional level, Garga Haman Adji envisages the independence of three powers (executive, legislative and judicial). It also projects the restoration of traditional authority and the institutionalization of a high media authority, in charge of the objective management of the media and information and communication technologies (ICT). Hint all about his unfortunate exit on August 7 during the broadcast of political debate "100% Presidential" on the CRTV, the public channel. The candidate of the ADD had rejected a journalist who came to describe in the "Followers" section of the show, the atmosphere of the debate on social networks. An act that had created an uproar in opinion, including the press that had demanded in vain the public apology of the candidate on pain of banishment.

On the economic and socio-cultural level, Garga Haman Adji, the only candidate from North Cameroon for the upcoming presidential election, is betting on a policy of rational and permanent creation of jobs, with a focus on processing raw materials on the spot. Free education and health care are not left out. Finally, on the form of the state, "the whale hunter" is favorable to the federalism which constitutes, according to the latter, the solution to crises in the English-speaking regions and Boko Haram.
