HE who does not know should put this in mine now that Paul Biya as noted in Jeune Afrique Economique number 371,2006,as Africa political Judoka.he sits quiet,does not make noise like other heads of states do.Biya is pragmatic in his political life.he listens and act when we least expect.Infact Paul Biya is a political guru in Africa.
This is a president who took over AHIDJO in 1982,many political pundits saw him as a transitional man with his rigor,moralisation and intergrity but it turn out to be a Cameroon with great ambition and millenium devepment programme by 2035.
when the uprising in the arab world began championed by youths,our president quickly created 25000 now ghost jobs to youths,all he talks now is youths should do this,youths should do that.And the very youths have been urged to take part in nation building like electing OLD people into office etc.
In his political know-how,president Biya convened CPDM ruling party congress at the time when candidates for presidential elections had sent theri files.this meant that during the congress election of party chair was not necesory even though his mandate had ended.
IN the 3rd ordinary congress of Cameroon People Democratic Movement,CPDM, Biya talks of giving way to the youths BUT U KNOW NOT NOW.
