President Biya’s Campaign Team boasted over Crtv to have mobilized close to 40,000 youth to parade the streets of Yaoundé as support for the continuation of President Paul Biya come Oct 7 presidential elections. They were after the march past stranded in town.
Scandy Media later learnt that these youths came from all over the national Territory claiming they received phone calls to come to Yaoundé the Capital of La Rep for a CPDM meeting only to be brought, used and dumped after parading the streets.
Amongst those who came from other regions were Damarice Abendou all the way from Bamenda in the NWR, Diane Ndzie Nama from the South Region, Elysee Koroko from Yaoundé 2 Soa who expressed their dissatisfaction to the organizers who were nowhere to be found but got them stranded and abandoned.
Another category of group duped by the same CPDM campaign team were the motorbike riders also known as Okada boys. They were hired to ride throughout the city from the main town through Essos and Omnisport only for the organizers to disappear into thin air leaving them with no balance for the whole day.
This would mean that the exaggerated figures of 40,000 youths which were not up to 20,000 were tricked to come to Yaoundé for an urgent meeting only to be used to come to the streets and parade themselves as rallying behind President Paul Biya only to be abandoned on the streets after achieving their aim to get them on the camera for their media and candidate.
This should be a serious warning to those going to give their votes to the CPDM as sign of bad faith and that more of such disappointments await them after the elections. A word to a wise is enough.
