From 10 a.m. to 1.30 p.m., the animation was in high decibel with representations of various cultural groups of the Region and a rhythmic dance from the Fang (South, Centre and East of Cameroon). After a discourse by a CPDM expert on the relevance of the Regional elections, the regional campaign leader, Peter Mafany Musonge, took the rostrum to call on all councillors of the Region to vote the CPDM list which is poised to make the South West Region “a high place for the consolidation of national unity and integration as well as the defence of the territorial integrity of Cameroon”. Mafany Musonge highlighted the importance of the election to include the fact that it will epitomize the special status for Anglophone Cameroon as accorded after the recent Major National Dialogue. Above all, he said, the election will bring power closer to the people in making their own choices about their advancement.
