Be WARNED - Paul Biya Will Be History If Cameroon Opposition Unites For 2018 Polls says Akere Muna

Akere Muna, the only opposition figure in Cameroon to have declared his candidature for next year’s presidential polls is pushing for a united opposition front to face Biya.

Muna a top anti-corruption crusader and celebrated lawyer in the country told his supporters earlier this week that he will not mind if the coalition candidate was someone else.

He stressed that he was open to back any candidate whose ideas and vision was superior to his given that the ultimately goal is to end decades of rule by Paul Biya.

Biya, 84, has been president of the Central African country since 1982. He has yet to declare any intentions to contest in the 2018 polls but indications show that it is just a matter of time.

Muna, a former Vice Chairperson of Transparency International has also previously served as president of the Cameroon Bar Association. He recently resigned his post as president of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) in order to focus on his political ambitions.

The IACC describes itself as the world’s premier forum that brings together Heads of State, Civil Society, the Private Sector and more to tackle the increasingly sophisticated challenges posed by corruption.

Muna announced his presidential bid a week ago via a video address stating that his decision was premised on wanting to give the central African country a fresh start after years under incumbent Paul Biya.

Muna who hails from the Anglophone region, in the address and a statement cited by AFPsaid it was time for the Central African country to reset its direction hence his decision to enter the race.

“We have to walk to a new Republic”, which will be “based on good governance” and “the rule of law,” he asserted, saying that there would be no “tolerance for corruption, tribalism, nepotism and favoritism,” with him in charge. Paul Biya Will Be History If Cameroon Opposition Unites For 2018 Polls says Akere Muna
