"Values Will Change Voter Apathy To Empathy"
Voter apathy and empathy. This is like trying to mix kerosene and water. The two will not mix. For definitions of these words, please double click on them.
Getting back to the subject of this discourse, as I understand it, the writer or journalist wants us to understand that cameroonians will fulfil their obligations if taught the basic tenets of citizenship.
A few months ago, I went into the text of our constitution, hoping to find out who indeed is a Cameroonian. This was after reading on ths forum that children born of foreign parentage in Cameroon, (Nigerians), were not entitled to live in Cameroon as Cameroonians. Unless my eyesight is failing me, I did not see within our constitution, who indeed is a Cameroonian. Small associatios in the diaspora pay attention to this detail; who is, who is not. Why not Cameroon?
But then what is citizenship?
Will come back to answer this question after you have had a go.
Blessed be Cameroon.

So Mr. Simon Nkwenti, the reason Cameroonians are shunning the poll stations today is mainly because they don't have high values?!NOOO!! It's because everyone knows right now that the ordinary person's vote does not count for anything. Just like the class prefects you talked about, if students learned that it didn't matter who they voted for, that the teacher had already picked out a winner, they will not like to vote no matter how many hours of sweet discourse you give them on citizenship. My point: it's OK to teach students good values, but that does not mean when they grow up they'll flock to vote for any kind of election. Just like in the classroom, they'll still need the assurance that the teacher will not fix the results.
