Mr Ndifor, let me start by paying tribute to you for your indefatigable effort in helping people fight Alzheimer's and slowing it down through vigorous mental exercise. Yes indeed, mental activity slows down the deadly phenomenon.

That said, let me try to offer some perspective to your theme. I will start with a question: what good is a superstar player in a team where most of the teammates have agendas at variance with winning? Is it possible to win a war if most of the fighting force is made of mercenaries willing and able to change sides at any moment? Good as CPC graduates might be, they often found themselves deployed in situation where the current went in the oposite direction.

What good is a superstar player who is drafted into a team, not for his talents, but to meet some murky goal of patronage politics? Yes indeed, CPC, like Sasse and Okoyong, did produce a fine crop of citizens imbued with civic spirit, religious zeal and all. But sandwitching such good products where they were without impact could not deliver the goods, could it? Bright spots like the Anoma Ngus, Nzo Ekah-Nghakis, James Tataws, Zaccheus Forjindams and tons of others could not do much when swarmed in an ocean of counter current, could they?

This of course is not to downplay the individual shortcomings of the actors themselves. Achidi Achu reminds me of one referee who blew his whistle and showed a player the red card but, faced with the player's obdurate refusal to leave the field of play, decided to quit himself! It is a shrewd survival instinct to sit in front of the Presbyterian Church on sunday, receive communion and then go to work on monday to preach or practice "rub my back, I rub your own".


Once we understand our place in the world, then, and only then, can we devise strategies to better our lot.

Cameroon is a slave territory ran for the primary benefit of global capital who control their plutocratic puppets in Washington, Paris, London etc.

Biya titularly oversees this slave holding and does a good job for the global capitalists.
