The achievements of the National President were acclaimed on Sunday March 22, 2015 during a special cultural evening at the Yaounde Conference Centre.
As the ruling Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM) commemorates the 30th anniversary of its existence today March 24, 2015, party members, supporters and sympathisers in Yaounde converged at the Congress Centre on Sunday March 22, to pay tributes to the President of the Republic and National President, Paul Biya. The cultural evening was not only a forum to salute the landmark reforms initiated by the Head of State within the party but also to hail the activities of the Honorary WCPDM President and First Lady, Mrs Chantal Biya as well as Cameroon’s defence forces currently defending the territorial integrity of the country. Glowing tributes for the Presidential couple were projected through documentaries to the admiration of the attendees.
The event organised by the General Secretariat of the Central Committee was witnessed by several cabinet ministers including the Secretary General of the CPDM Central Committee, Jean Nkuete. The major articulations during the special evening included the rendition of the 30th anniversary song wherein the choristers hailed the ideals of peace, democracy, freedom, education and health as major achievements of the CPDM government. While urging Cameroonians to renew their loyalty to Paul Biya, the lyrics of the song by the mega choir of the party entitled “Far from our home” also enjoined fellow compatriots to support the defence forces who are at the battle front. Songs were also dedicated to fallen soldiers on the battle field while the famous Zangalewa group also devoted a song titled “Goodbye brave soldiers”, to the heroes.
The evening full of fanfare was also an opportunity for the 30 years of CPDM existence to be highlighted in a poetic drama. The 30 minutes drama piece divided into three summary sequences each recalling some of the important events on a 10-year period of history which demonstrates the determination of the party to continue to achieve in order and discipline, the objectives of peace, progress, in view to build a society of freedom and democracy. The first sequence entitled “birth and strategic deployment” evoked some salient events of the first decade of the party from 1985 to 1995 while the second sequence called “consolidation of achievements” retraced some events that occurred during the CPDM decade of development from 1995 to 2005. The third sequence “maturity and mobilisation of all for the emerging Cameroon”, dwelled on events between 2005 to 2015.
