Cameroon’s Presidential Poll: Prof. Elvis Ngolle Ngolle is bitter 0

CPDM Prof. Elvis Ngolle Ngolle, has become very bitter after he learned that his party comrades had a party at their party headquarters in Yaounde last Friday when the Constitutional Council President, Clement Atangana, handed the people’s victory to the CPDM candidate, Paul Biya, who neither campaigned nor addressed the nation during the campaign.

Prof. Elvis Ngolle Ngolle who had spent most of his time at the Constitutional Council hearing throughout the week only learned from unofficial sources that there was a huge party in which his comrades were having a good time after successfully stealing the people’s victory at the party headquarters.

The bitter professor was so disappointed and even pointed out that whenever it came to working, he would be asked to be there for the party and whenever there was food and drinks, he would be sidelined or simply made to look foolish. He said he was tired of being humiliated by his peers of Beti extraction and that if not given a position in government, he would just stay in his own corner of the world.

“I think they think that I am their dunce. When it comes to work they will make sure I am there all day, but when the fruits of our labor are there, they will quietly leave me in my little corner as if I don’t matter. I wish they could know what risks I have taken just to make sure Mr. Biya is given the votes he has today. If they think I am not useful, let them head to the southwest region to face those violent Amba boys. These are people can chop off my head if they lay their hands on me. I have been exiled by my own people and now the people in Yaounde are behaving as if I don’t count,” the frustrated professor is alleged to have said.

Our source added that the cash-strapped professor was helpless, adding that he had not got alternatives. He stressed that like every Cameroonian, he has his bills to pay and given his involvement in some shady deals while he was in government, it is very unlikely that Prof. Ngolle Ngolle will walk away from the ruling CPDM.

“He is stuck with that party. He is cash-strapped and cannot survive without the CPDM. The professor is in debt right up to his eyeballs and if he walks away from the CPDM, he will be walked straight to Kondengui, the country’s maximum security jail located on the outskirts of the city,” our source said.

A native of the Southwest, Prof. Ngolle Ngolle has been working very hard to get a place in government before, during and after the rigged presidential poll. Prof. Ngolle Ngolle has been very desperate ever since he was kicked out of government a few years ago. His desperation was noticed during the presidential election campaign during which he said his party members should employ spiritual and supernatural means just to gain the support they needed to return his party candidate, Paul Biya, to power.

It should be recalled Prof. Ngolle Ngolle has been exiled from the Southwest region and he is among those who have been earmarked for killing if they returned to the region. Others from the region who are also facing the death penalty include, Senator Tabe-tando, Minister Victor Mengot Arrey, former prime minister Peter Mafany Musonge, Member of Parliament Okpu, former minister Ogork Ntui, Mayor Patrick Ekema, Prof. Etchu George, Minister Dion Ngute and all seating CPDM parliamentarians and senators. They were found guilty of treason by the Southern Cameroons Supreme Court.

It should be stressed that Senator Tabe-tando, Minister Victor Mengot Arrey and Prof. Echu George missed death by the skin of their teeth on October 7, 2018 as they defied Ambazonian orders to vote for their party in Mamfe.  

It should also be pointed out that most chiefs in the region have been chased away from their areas of jurisdiction. According to a source close to the Ambazonian fighters, all the chiefs who have been found guilty of working against the people’s interest have been handed a lesser charge and if arrested will have to spend a long time in an Ambazonian environment-friendly jail.
