Secret meeting in Etoudi: Paul Biya asked to step down from power by the International communities to save Cameroon from Civil War

Moussa Faki Mahamat of the African Union, Patricia Scotland of the Commonwealth and Louise Mushikiwabo of the International Organization of La Francophonie met President Paul Biya privately in Yaoundé and insisted that he give up power.

Our intelligence officer in Yaounde said the meeting, which was attended by representatives of the US and French embassies in Yaoundé, was held in a secret location. US diplomats delivered a clear and firm message that the only way to free the Republic of Cameroon from the civil war was for Biya, 86, to step down. 

The secret meeting took place after a televised meeting with Prime Minister Dion Ngute in which the Cameroonian public media, CRTV, reported that Biya was still in the good graces of the West and that his troops were gaining strength. restoration of Ambazonia for the control of the rich oil region of southern Cameroon. 

The interim government of South Cameroon announced last week the creation of the Bank of Ambazonia, which was followed by the appointment of the governor of the bank by Vice President Dabney Yerima, which would give a boost to the campaign of total and total independence of South Cameroon.

The Secretary General to the Presidency of the Republic, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, was heard after the meeting that the Biya regime would have welcomed the discussions, but only without preconditions. 

The Franco-Cameroonian army has changed tactics several times during the fighting in southern Cameroon since the beginning of the uprising of Ambazonia, nearly four years ago. 

State television, aimed at countering claims that the Biya regime was collapsing, broadcast images of ordinary life in southern Cameroon with students apparently returning to school. Biya refuses to withdraw despite pressure from the United States and the European Union.
