« 3D of Rose | Main | President Biya Prepares Successor »

Must admit I haven`t caught the election fever yet, but I would be looking for the following in a candidate:
- Primarily a generational candidate (preferably but not necessarily under 50 - sorry Nfor Susungi; Fru Ndi; Paul Biya...)
- With private sector expertise

Could initiate the following:
- A obligatory or voluntary youth service program, to promote national cohesion. We maintain a parorochial perspective on issues because we know little about others, besides the stereotypes (the cola nut-chewing Mallam from the North; the hillybilly "Ngraffi"; the sophisticated but spendthrift "Sawa"; the corrupt Francophone...) The youth should be encouraged to explore the three corners of the triangle and develop a nationalist mindset.
- Such a youth service program should focus on rural development (no pen pushing)
- Bridge the dichotomy between Science and Art education, by delaying specialisation up to tertiary level; bridge the rigidity between general education on the one hand, and technico-vocational education on the other. The emphasis should be on creativity, thus a more classical approach. Education for knowledge as opposed to education for employment
- Introduce quotas to certain oversubscribed courses (modern letters; Law; Management...) and even more rigid quotas for some higher institutions (ENAM, IRIC...). In the same vain, promote creativity by introducing Art and Design to current university curriculum
- Promote the private sector and encourage corporatism by reviving the Douala Stock Exchange and educating the masses on its benefits. If the DSX cannot be revived then maybe eat humble pie and merge with the regional stock exchange in Gabon
- Promote pan-Africanism (racial politics is a reality)

In a nutshell the theme for development should be "self reliance".


The appointment of new generals by President Paul Biya was meant at nothing else than giving a new face to our army. People will always try to indulge into negative interpretations which are wrong most of the time.
