Debates are a lousy way of presenting facts. In Cameroon, debates are naturally polarizing with CPDM and SDF partisans always expected to advocate that all benefits lie on their side. This disguises what might be crucial facts, that either position has costs.
Reasonable people might believe any of the following: that the Paul Biya decree signed on Wednesday, June 29, 2016, appointing Aminatou Ahidjo, as chair of the Congress Hall in Yaoundé, with benefits in kind provided for by the regulations in force, stated in Article 2 of the presidential text was a good thing in our Cameroon political story.
Secondly, against the advice of her mother, Germaine Ahidjo in exile in Senegal, where the late President Ahmadou Ahidjo, the first Head of State of Cameroon was buried after his death in 1989, Aminatou Ahidjo decided upon her return to Cameroon to join against all odds in 2013 the ranks of the ruling CPDM, the political party of President Paul Biya, successor and nemesis of the Ahidjo family.
Cameroon Concord News Group understands she lobbied for a ministerial position and failed in her October 2, 2015 cabinet reshuffle bid. The CPDM Congress Hall is an impressive infrastructure for the organization of events in Yaounde. The Agbaw-Ebai Debate is asking our readers: Should her actions be interpreted as a form of betrayal?
