Head of State’s New Year Message to the Nation – 31 December 2020

PRC | President Paul BIYA has called on Cameroonians to continue respecting the safety measures taken to halt the spread of COVID-19 while working hard to maintain security, so as to enable our economy to recover from the ravages of the pandemic.

In his traditional New Year message to the Nation on 31 December 2020, the Head of State invited all Cameroonians to continue to wear face masks in public places, wash their hands regularly and observe social distancing measures in the face of the second wave of the pandemic that is causing havoc all over the world.

The security situation in the country was also a major concern, as he once more called those wielding arms in the North-West and South-West Regions to lay down their weapons and join their fellow citizens in nation-building. President Paul BIYA also outlined strategies laid out by Government to get our economy rebound and speed up in the quest for economic emergence by 2035.

  1. Dictator Biya forgot to remind citizens of LRC that their country had independence on 01.01.1960.
    Simply put, citizens of LRC aka Francophones should not be ashamed to celebrate their independence tomorrow, the 01.01.2021.

    • Dictator Biya ” once more called those wielding arms in the North-West and South-West Regions to lay down their weapons and join their fellow citizens in nation-building.”????????????

      Of course, the evil Bulu Dictator is simply daydreaming.
      GENUINE Amba boys will NEVER EVER, I repeat NEVER EVER drop weapons until all LRC occupiers are sent back to their country.
      It is very easy to start a war. However, it is extremely difficult to stop a war.
      Dictator Biya FOOLISHLY started a war without an EXIT STRATEGY. He thought his terrorist soldiers would crush Amba boys within a few days(the so-called BLITZKRIEG). However, Amba boys gave him an OPEN-ENDED war. Only God knows when the war will end. Dictator Biya should therefore stop BEGGING Amba boys to drop weapons.



      “ Crise anglophone: Le Congrès américain adopte une résolution qui appelle à un dialogue inclusif et critique l’action de la France.
      Dans ce volumineux document, le Congrès américain (Sénat et Chambre des Représentants) appelle «le gouvernement du Cameroun et les groupes armés séparatistes des régions anglophones du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest à mettre fin à toute violence, à respecter les droits de l’homme de tous les Camerounais, et à poursuivre un dialogue véritablement inclusif en vue de résoudre le conflit civil en cours dans le Cameroun anglophone».

      ** MY TAKE **

      The war will end at the negotiating table. Simply put, the so-called special status, commission on bilingualism, other useless presidential “SOLUTIONS” are a waste of precious time.

  2. You must be the worst fool to keep doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. I can’t be bothered listening to this moron! Same tale and endless promises for close to 40s. Same tale about the situation in Southern Cameroons, regid like his arthritic bones. A heart as callous as his inability to accept new reforms, a straitjacketed autocratic leader with no sense of shame and soul for the suffering plight of Cameroonians. Thousands dying in road accidents each year because of unwillingness to build strong institutions void of corruption, to protect the people. Thousands wallowing in poverty and how disgraceful that an economy like Cameroon has a single shopping mall, a derelict oneline railway line, shambolic airports, no reliable airline. Oh he will be remembered as a traitor!

  3. hahahah ambazonia fustration.

  4. when the so called brave Ambas never had or used guns in their lives in 2016 during a peaceful protest with reasonable demands from the yaounde regime,they were met by colonial french cameroon military brutality, again in 2017 when the population held peace plants to air out their same grievances of 60 years of fraustration by the injustices from the majority francophone regime, they were met by even worst brutalit killings,arrestand sent to jails,now that Ambas have wise up to realise the strength of gun power against a dictatorship, they will never ever lay down their powerful weapon to be massacre again by a oppress dictatorship, the earlier french cameroon regime realise that the majority English people want nothing to do with them the better or we continue fighting till eternity
