Election 2018: two presidential candidates missing


It's a two-speed election campaign that's going on in Cameroon right now. While the good majority of the candidates put more on the communication by multiplying the techniques to conquer the electorate in order to win the vote of October 7, others have opted for silence as a method of conquest.

Except that here, the silence is far from gold. On the contrary, to make the choice of mutism in this period very ambient, it is synonymous to recognize or to decline its ambitions to reach the supreme magistracy. In the list of candidates for communication considered silent, we find that of the Democratic Union of Cameroon (UDC), Adamou Ndam Njoya and the Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD), Garga Haman Adji.

These two candidates, who are however customary at this time, are talking about themselves more than they speak, thus giving them the opportunity to ask themselves "Where have they gone"? As did an online journal about the UDC candidate. Camerooninfo.net believes that the latter is "invisible on the ground. Nine days after the launch of the election campaign and 6 days of voting, Adamou Ndam Njoya has not always made public appearance (...) So far, the campaign of Ndam Njoya is led by his teams including his wife , MP Hermine Patricia Tomaino.

They favored door-to-door travel across the western, northern, central and southern regions. The entourage of Ndam Njoya announces two big meetings of their champion on October 5 and 6, 2018 in Yaounde, "writes a colleague.

The newspaper Camer. be, meanwhile, concludes that the candidate of the UDC is completely absent from the field. This time, it is at the stroke of the disease that the newspaper justifies this silence "Adamou Ndam Njoya is absent on the ground. For health reasons, the candidate of the UDC does not fight against the population, "he says.

Last August, the report on the inactivity of the latter on the various digital platforms was already attracting the attention of Cameroonians. As a result of this remark, Journalducameroun wrote that "the candidate of the Democratic Union of Cameroon (UDC) for the 2018 presidential election is slow to engage in the conquest of the Cameroonian electorate via social networks.

This politician has a Facebook account but he does not publish content regularly, "he lamented. Also considered absent in this election, Garga Haman Adji, certainly a little less than that of the UDC, the candidate of the ADD makes very little talk about him. The latter hypothetically rely on the presence of some posters in the streets to conquer the voices and do better than in the past. GARGA, NDAM NJOYA When the other candidates fully communicate the cash, these two have opted instead for a less noisy campaign.
