AN OPEN QUESTION FOR PRESIDENT PAUL BIYA

Mr President, with full due respect. Can you comment on these using any media of your choice? We wish you long life sie, but forgive me to ask you this. Do you see ypur self one day as having the title "Formal president of Cameroon" while you are stil alive ?(2) If the people of Cameroon disrespect the constitution and ask you to run for another seven years, would you say "no"?(3) Do you really think that Anglophones in Cameroon are satisfy with the stauts quo ? if no, do you thinkyou have done all you can do ?(4) Do you know that Police and Gendarms ust go around collecting 500 frs and 1000 frs respectively from most cars and not even think anything ?. If yes, do you have a plans to develope a system to stop it ? or solicite competing plans from the public for a reward to the person with the best?.

Mr. Paul Biya,
Are you aware that 85 % of CPDM militants, the party you head, think the party is in its worse state, and thus needs a new chairman?
Are you also aware that 15 % who think the party is well are those who want you to amend article 6 (2) of the 1996 constitution?
In case you don't now, visit the web site of the party you head at http://www.rdpcpdm.cm/lnl.php .
Are you aware that you don't control Cameroon in the real sense of the word. That a junta (15% of CPDM militants)have controlled Cameroon since the 1992 stolen elections victory of the SDF and placed you as a puppet. These junta has embezzled the Countries wealth and fear being prosecuted when your (their puppet) is out of office.
Are you aware that this 15 % of your militants represent 250050 Cameroonians out of about 18 million Cameroonioans.
Mr. Paul Biya, the call for the amendment of article 6(2) of the 1996 constitution is not a popular call. Please 98.4% of the population are against the amendment of the constitution and are ready to die rather that to see that happen.
Don't destroy the Country that has cared for you for the past 71 years of your life on earth.
Thank you.

I strongly believe that amending article 6[2] of the1996 constitution is radiculus and also tampering with peace and stability of the cameroon.Mr President,when I was just four years old I Started hearing and seeing your name,your pictures allover CAMEROON,Please are you the only capable politician who can deliver what cameroonian folks want? The best thing a politician or a one time president should do is to accept to one day be in the opposition camp.

Cameroon needs repentance or the land of promise and the land of glory will be taken away.
Leaders who would have be fearing God and thanking Him for raising them to that position, Keep doing thier own fogerting about Him.
God's eyes is opon the land. Proverbs 15;3 All evil people will be aressted by God.

the recent speech by PAUL BIYA is an insult to all Cameroonians. I am begging the ARM FORCES to do something. They should take over power or hand us their guns to fight. we must coperate and take over our country from DRAGON PAUL AND HIS MENDOZE'S family. If not the Cameroonians will have no future. It is too much.
PLEASE CAMEROONIANS DO NOT GIVE UP, THE TIME HAS COME FOR CHANGE. NOW IS THE TIME FOR REVOLUTION, WE CANNOT WAIT FOR EVOLUTION AGAIN. WE MUST FIGHT AND TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY FROM DEVIL BIYA

Instead of Biya to come out an address the people properly,he has always been an abusive father to Cameroonians and when they get upset he calls the youth DELINQUENTS,they became delinquent because he left them ideal and have nothing to fall back on after studying so hard.He didnt address the issue on the amendment of the constitution,so that he can stand again for president in 2011.He is soooooooooooo WRONG,he has always taken the advantage that Cameroonians are diverse in culture and cant stand up for what they want.This strike jus proved him wrong.Cameroonians are not violent by nature but Biya has pushed us so much and we ust exploded.Biya you better go out graciously or be pushed out and seek exile maybe in C.A.R,cos you think France is behind,no no no.remeber Bokassa? You will be treated the same.Dot spend the few rest of your life running,step down.

After reading about the amendment of Cameroon's constitution,i wept why the country's Parliamentarians couldn't stand out to be counted by voting against it.History has a way of catching up with people so those parliamentarians should be prepared to face the music any time in the future.We all know that the constitutions of most countries provides immunity for the acts of serving President.But,can such an immunity be considered if such 'acts' of the President was below reasonable conducts?Killing youths demonstrating,ruining a once prosperous economy,embezzling public funds,rigging elections,tribalistic tendencies etc.Just a piece of paper cannot prevent a person responsible for the above mentioned from prosecution.Yes,for my country's constitution is just a piece of paper,so please it can't grant you immunity.Would advise the President of Cameroon not to believe much on that 'poorly worded document' because it would be a great illusion.Make your peace with your people,than believing that others would respect that same constitution which you single handedly designed to suit your personal quest for power.So,Mr.President that piece of paper wouldn't help you because you have offended you people for too long and continue to offend them.

President Paul Biya do you think you are really rulling Cameroon fairly? How many times have you visited north west province? Have you ever compare and contrast the lively hood of those citizens in the north west province and those of south and east? Interms of developing, roads, schools, and life as a whole???
I'm asking these questions from my own perspectives, we have children growing up and they need a better future in order to achieve their dream goals. And if you as a leader don't make things possible for these innocent souls who else will help them accomplish their dreams?? 20 years old Cameroonian!
Thanks Mr. President!!!!

Mr Ahadji, the modification of the constitution is undertaken through a couple a mechanisms which are not individual. If there was modification of the constitution it means majority of the people agreed, simple and clear.

People keep asking why i reverse the the au to ua in biya,s name .Simply because saints and demons should not have the same names.I Will spell his name correctly if picks one from hell, as he should rightly do.He is ashamed of being called paul anyway.In naming him paul his parents might have had saul in mind.biya is is the most apt example of saul before he became paul
