REASON OF THE FURIOUS OPPOSITION AGAINST FEDERALISM

biyapaulIN CAMEROON, THE POSITION OF PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC IS THAT OF A MONARCH TO WHOM ALL THE COUNTRY BELONGS

THE OCCUPANT OF THE POSITION IS A SERVANT OF FRANCE, FROM WHICH HE BENEFITS ARMED SUPPORT, AND CAN PERMIT HIMSELF ALL THINGS, INCLUDING STEALING ANYTHING HE WANTS AND KILLING WHO HE WANTS, IN TOTAL IMPUNITY

THE ONE HOLDING IT DEFENDS HYPERCENTRALIZATION OF POWERS BY ALL THE MEANS

kamto-mauriceTHE (FALSE) OPPOSITION CANDIDATES ALSO ARE OPPOSED TO FEDERALISM BECAUSE THEY WANT TO REPLACE BIYA AND REAP THIS HYPERCENTRALIZATION’S ADVANTAGES

THIS IS WHY YOU SEE (WEIRDLY) TOTAL ABSENCE OF THEIR PARTIES ON THE GROUND EVER SINCE THE ANGLOPHONES BATTLE AND ARE KILLED IN BAMENDA, BUEA, KUMBO AND OTHER CITIES OF SOUTHERN CAMEROON

FEDERALISM WILL MAKE CAMEROON REALLY INDEPENDENT, BY SNATCHING IT FROM FRANCE’S CRAWS, AND TRANSFERRING A LARGE PART OF THESE MONARCHICAL POWERS TO THE HANDS OF THE NEW FEDERAL STATES

THE BIYA REGIME AND THE FAKE, CURRENT OFFICIAL OPPOSITION ARE AGAINST FEDERALISM, WHICH WILL HINDER THEIR AMBITIONS OF ROBBING AND OPPRESSING THE PEOPLE

Monarchical powers are characterized by extreme concentration of all State powers in the hands of a single individual. The Constitution of 18 January 1996 gives the following excessive powers to the President of the Republic of Cameroon:

  • The President of the Republic shall appoint the President of the National Assembly, the President of the Senate, the President and the members of the Supreme Court, the Constitutional Council, the High Court of Justice and the Economic and Social Council,
  • Article 8, he represents the State, is the supreme head of the armed forces, supreme head of the magistracy, accredits ambassadors, promulgates laws, exercises the regulatory power, calls the constitutional council, creates and organizes public, military and civilian services, may dissolve the parliament, etc.,
  • Article 9, he shall enjoy special powers to govern by decrees having the force of law, including the declaration of the State of emergency,
  • Article 10, he shall appoint the Prime Minister,
  • Article 14, he shall convene and be consulted on the meetings of the Parliament,
  • Article 15, he may request the National Assembly to extend his presidential mandate by a law,
  • Article 19, he may request a second reading of the laws adopted by the National Assembly,
  • Article 20, he appoints 3 of the 10 senators of each region,
  • Article 24, he may request a second reading of the laws adopted by the senate,
  • Article 25, he has the initiative of (he initiates) the laws,
  • Article 28, he may impose his own laws by ordinances,
  • Article 30, he promulgates the laws adopted by the parliament,
  • Article 36, he may submit bills to the referendum,
  • Article 37, he appoints and sanctions the magistrates,
  • Article 43, he negotiates and ratifies international treaties and agreements,
  • Article 51, he appoints the 11 members of the constitutional council, which judges the constitutionality of the laws and ensures the regularity of the elections of which it proclaims the results,
  • Article 53, he may organize the High Court of Justice, which judges the head of state for high treason and the members of the government for conspiracy against the security of the State (but Paul Biya has neither done it nor ratified the Treaty of Rome establishing the ICC),
  • Article 54, he is the only one to refer the matters to the Economic and Social Council,
  • Article 58, he shall appoint the delegates of the regions,
  • Article 59, he may dissolve the regional council,
  • Article 60, he may sack the members of the regional council,
  • Article 62, he can redraw the map of communities and regions,
  • Article 63, he may initiate the revision of the constitution.

AND IT IS THE CURRENT “LAZY KING” AND VACATIONER WHO IS SUPPOSED TO FILL ALL THESE FUNCTIONS!

WELL, HE IS UNABLE TO DO IT, AND HAS ALLOWED HIS “ELITES” A LAISSEZ-FAIRE, WHICH ENDED UP INTO CURRENT CHAOS MARKED BY THE ENDLESS IMPOVERISHMENT OF CAMEROON AND CAMEROONIANS

CAMEROON HAS JUST BEEN IMPOSED NEW PROGRAMS OF STRUCTURAL ADJUSTMENTS, AFTER 20 YEARS OF THEIR EMPLEMENTATION UP TO THE FINDING OF CAMEROON’S BANKRUPTCY IN 2006

EVEN THE FALSE DECENTRALIZATION OF THIS 1996 CONSTITUTION SCARES HIM, AND HE HAS NOT PUT IT INTO EFFECT

ekane-anicetThe candidates for the succession of Paul Biya, under the present institutional conditions, are in fact more animated by greed, thirst for domination, pride, if not intentions for vengeance, than by a real will to bring about the general well-being awaited by Cameroon. They support the constitution of 1996, which ensures them full satisfaction of their personal appetites, and oppose the federal constitution of 1961 which does not offer them such a possibility.

A succession without change of the very bad constitution of 1996 may result in war and disintegration. For a succession through elections, with the machine of frauds and armed forces currently in the hands of Paul Biya, is impossible since nobody else but Biya or his candidate can win the royal position by the ballot boxes. Only two possibilities remain to the sovereign People: (1) popular insurrection until the state apparatuses are paralyzed and the resignation of the president and government, or (2) the overthrow of the regime by arms.

fru-ndiAnglophones have begun a popular insurrection, and the regime responds by armed repression to invite them to fight back with arms. But by dint of killing them and violating their human rights, Anglophones will receive, from the sentient souls of the world, the armed and financial help they need, not anymore in order to obtain the federalism they are currently demanding for the good of all Cameroonians, but the secession and establishment by force of their independent state.

The centralization and accumulation of state powers in the hands of a single individual are the causes of abuses of all kinds, institutional chaos, instability, and insecurity prefiguring a break-up in a civil war. The struggle for the position of the almighty President of the Republic will always be bitter, violent, and mortal. Federalism is the solution in hand to put an end to it.
