No official of the ruling party has called on Paul Biya not to run for 2018 presidential election.
Jacques Fame Ndongo, the secretary for communication of the central committee of Rassemblement démocratique du peuple camerounais (RDPC), published a communiqué denying the allegation, on behalf of Jean Nkuete, RDPC’s general secretary, on December 6, 2017.
The communiqué read: “a fake statement allegedly signed by members of the political bureau of the central committee, high officials and heads of the central committee’s general secretary, asking Paul Biya, national president of RDPC, not to run for the coming presidential election, is being shared on social media and in diplomatic representations”.
Jacques Fame Ndongo confirmed that it is a fake document which is part of a vast and gross campaign of disinformation and manipulation.
He thinks that some people want to “bring down the morale of the partisans” of his party in face of their strong support to Cameroon’s president "in the unswerving and victorious combats he is leading for peace, national unity and improvement of the living conditions of our compatriots”.
