Anglophone Crisis: Tibor Nagy gives Paul Biyà one last fatal blow

On March 18, 2019, just outside the audience at Etoudi Palace, US Secretary of State for African Affairs Tibor Nagy said: "Paul Biya is an exceptional statesman.We exchanged views, I appreciated the wisdom and intelligence of President Biya who is an outstanding statesman."

All happy, Paul Biya, Head of State and Grand Master of National Orders, after Donald Trump's special envoy, handed over a bronze object of art, and on the same evening rushed to sign a decree to award him an exceptional medal which was only awarded to high-ranking personalities who have dedicated their lives to the country, or foreign heads of state who have contributed economically and diplomatically to the good image of the country.

"Decree number 2019/141 of 18 March 2019 appointing exceptionally in the order of value, Dignity of Grand Officer: Mr. Peter Tibor Nagy, Under-Secretary of State for Europe and Africa". This decree signed for a month, hidden from the CRTV and Cameroon Tribune, two institutions with public capital, appeared in the recent issue (56) of "The Time of Achievements", the magazine that publishes monthly the civil cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic.

This presidential decree appears just as former Prime Minister Peter Mafany Musonge, who chairs the Grand Chancery of Orders, is meeting with its members in Yaounde, with a view to selecting the recipients for the next celebration on May 20, 2019.

Problem, the decree of the delivery of the medal of the order of the Value, Grand officer of the national Orders, is made public at the moment when Peter Tibor Nagy fights against the regime of Yaoundé.

On April 11, 2019, US Under Secretary of State for African Affairs Tibor Nagy told a press conference in Houston that after the overthrow by the people of the regime of Omar El Bashir Sudan, the security situation in Cameroon would be the next concern of the US government. "My next concern is Cameroon and you know how I feel about the hatred and violence that prevails there." He added that "Anglophones are fighting mainly for their rights and deplores the fact that the power of Yaoundé has knowingly let the situation escalate".

Long before leaving Cameroon, the Under-Secretary of State for African Affairs had already said in his interview on Channel 2 International that Cameroon is going very badly, and that it hopes to return only in 2020 when the state will end the crisis in the English-speaking regions of North West and South West and found a post-election crisis solution because ". He also left at the US Embassy in Yaounde, the bronze gift that Paul Biya had given him at the palace.

Paul Biya think he is with a cardboard medal he would return the United States and the European Union are currently on the same wavelength? Although the American diplomat recipient did not give his approval.
