Election 2018: Candidates are afraid of the English-speaking area

They each have a well-crafted program to solve the English crisis, which has raged for two years in the North West and South West regions, once elected President of the Republic but, they dare not wear it to the populations of the area concerned because of insecurity. Ndifor Frankline Afanwi, candidate of the National Citizen Movement of Cameroon and Adamou Ndam Njoya of the Democratic Union of Cameroon (UDC) will not fight campaigns in these regions. If the first does not say it openly, while his calendar of campaign does not present any meeting in this zone, the second, him, affirms it clearly. "We do not have a scheduled meeting in the English speaking area because we do not have a security guarantee to deploy in these areas. We can not take risks, "said Koupit Adamou, a member of Adamou Ndam Njoya's campaign team. In addition to the threat of secessionists, the party fears not to crowd as was the case in previous elections including, 2004 and 2011. "Every day we see people fleeing these areas. We will campaign to the citizens and not to the houses. Who are we going to see here? These areas are becoming more and more depopulated, "Koupit Adamou said.

What is also interesting during this election campaign, which ends on October 6, is that some candidates are suggesting that they will make stops in the Northwest and Southwest to convey their message of support and comfort to the people. populations, and yet in their agenda, jealously kept, desmeetings are hardly expected in this area. "There are at least three candidates who have announced their campaign in English-speaking regions but they will not do it. All fear for their safety and that of their teams. They are afraid of secessionists, it must be said and this is undoubtedly the reason why many prefer to fight campaign in the Southwest. They are fleeing the Northwest because they know what awaits them, "says an observer from the political scene.


Due to the Anglophone crisis, the South-West region has become the eldorado of candidates in the English-speaking area.Outside the Rdpc who held a rally on September 22 in the north-west, no other candidate went there to present his political project and society and especially the solutions it brings to the crisis .Although Maurice Kamto is announced with great fanfare in Bamenda today, nothing is certain yet. Especially when you know how much these candidates readjust their campaign calendar with each obstacle. Even if some, boast the chest of having beaten campaign in the English-speaking area; it is not true that they did not have enough guts to go to Bamenda.Even the Social Democratic Front, whose seat is Bamenda, preferred to commune with the people of the South-West, as well as for the Popular Front for Development.This could probably be justified by the fact that Joshua Osih and Akere Muna belong to this region, but that does not spare them the fear of secessionists. Serge hope Matomba du Purs, Cabral Libii are also announced in this region.
