The Cameroon Peoples Democratic Movement (CPDM) in Momo Division have decided to put aside their differences and confront the upcoming election as a unified front during a reconciliation meeting that held at the Mbengwi Party House, Monday August 12, 2013.

The meeting was called amidst impending division in the party in Momo ahead of the upcoming elections that risked ruining the chances of the CPDM to win.

Ama Tutu Muna, Minister of Culture who convened the meeting told the over 400 delegates from the 5 sections of the party that she knew there were differences between the grass root and the party hierarchy, between sections, subsections, branches, local leaders and militants and beckoned on all to express their sincere feelings for a common ground to be arrived at for the interest of the party.

The meeting was also convened in light of a circular by the Secretary General of the Central Committee, Jean Nkuete, laying down some guidelines and the need for militants to collect their voter’s cards, reconciled their difference, adopt a unified front, mobilize militants, respect party discipline, set out strategies and how best to maintain the CPDM’s dominant position in the country in the upcoming election on September 30th.

Taking turns according to sections, CPDM militants from Ngie, Njikwa, Widikum, Batibo and Mbengwi voiced out their disapproval of the investiture of some unpopular candidates over popular ones, the disrespect of the choices of the grassroots militants, the over bearing role of absentee elites that come only during election period, favouristism and nepotism in the selection exercise for candidates running for council and parliament, the derelict of some localities despite their unconditional support of the party close to power, in-house fighting and backstabbing, petition writing amongst others.

Concerns over the poor accessibility of some parts of Njikwa, Ngie and Widikum were laid to rest with the announcement of multiple projects in the pipeline to dis-enclave parts of these areas along the Momo ring road.

The meeting ended with a general agreement to stand as one and fight for the success of the CPDM party in upcoming twin election of September 30th 2013.

    The CPDM has always been a divided house, the only thing that bind them is power, corruption, money and greed. The simple existence of an ineffective Elecam is making them panic.
