Professor Elvis Ngolle Ngolle, Coordinator of the CPDM Academy, was speaking on Saturday 6 November, as commemorative activities were taking place across the country to mark 39 years since Paul Biya’s ascension to power as president of Cameroon.
The Professor told CRTV radio over the 3:00 pm newscast on Saturday, that the ruling party, the CPDM, is striving to be an exemplary party that works to serve the public and not themselves. He appreciated the changes that Paul Biya has brought to Cameroon so far. “The new deal as a policy package which is a reflection of the vision of a new leader was meant to be a series or a package of policy actions, that revolve around policy pillars which are rigour, moralization, liberalization, democratization and modernization.
“These policy pillars have enabled us in 39 years to be able to have a new Cameroon. A Cameroon which is democratic, a Cameroon that is free, a Cameroon where people are conscious of the importance of rigour and modernization even if some are still misbehaving, and a Cameroon where people know that the future lies in moralization. I think after 39 years, the new deal still has its relevance” Elvis Ngolle Ngolle stated.
He said despite the challenges the ruling party has had to face like, adapting to an environment where it is not the only political actor, where it is not the only voice, existing in an environment of diversity, of opinion which sometimes could be very rough and aggressive, they try to remain steadfast and adhere to the party’s principles and objectives, the politician made the public to understand.
To fully achieve those objectives, as Professor Ngolle Ngolle said, the CPDM party is constantly looking for new militants, to further ensure that “the government that is in place performs well”.
