Biya’s shameful legacy of waste and incompetence: Ministers Esso, Lejeune, Ngole Ngole paid 130 million FCFA
The Francophone regime in Yaounde has revealed that the sum of 130 million FCFA was paid out to the gang of CPDM barons who recently travelled abroad to meet Southern Cameroonians. The group that was led by the incompetent Minister of Justice, Laurent Esso did not produce the expected results and President Biya was forced to make a dramatic U-turn and ordered the release of the detained leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium.
The French Cameroun dominated CPDM team visited the United States, Belgium and South Africa to provide the Cameroonian community with clarifications on the situation in Southern Cameroons. The amount Minister Laurent Esso, Elvis Ngole Ngole, Foreign Affairs minister, Lejuene Mbella Mbella, Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute and the controversial Paul Ghogomu Mingo collected for the mission was made public following the release of a document signed in August 2017 by Finance Minister Alamine Ousmane Mey.
In the document, a source at the MINFI leaked to the media that the Biya acolyte authorized the release of 130 million CFA francs from the treasury coffers for the financing of the international mission. Our chief political correspondent in Yaounde noted that it was a CPDM pattern of wasting tax payers money on a mission that was deemed unnecessary by Southern Cameroonians.
It should however be mentioned here that the regime had hosted a diaspora forum in Yaounde and cat calls had also greeted the decision of sending cabinet ministers abroad from the opposition including the Social Democratic Front.
