BaretaNews notes that Mr.Biya currently owns the Judiciary, Military, Governors, Divisional Officers, Sub-Divisional Officers and the body which manages elections (ELECAM) in the country. As far as this platform is concerned, with the current political dispensation, the opposition in Cameroon will find it difficult to crush the CPDM come 2018. They must be able to come together, form a unified voice and start campaigning now for reforms. The respective opposition parties are waiting to only engage in 2018 which is wrong. BaretaNews salutes the effort of USDP President for unveiling his economic plan but we think it is just another lofty ideas for the sake of debating. First things must be done first and the opposition parties in the Cameroons know very well about it.

God is still saying something.
