The 72nd session of the UN General Assembly meeting turn out to be the worst UN meeting ever attended by President Paul Biya but ironically the best for first lady Chantal Biya.
- FIRST SETBACK
President Biya wasn,t invited to traditional Luncheon organised by US presidents for the African Leaders.
America just elected her new president i.e. president Trump and most African presidents (including president Biya) had an ulterior motive of meeting Trump in this 72nd session of the UN General Assembly meeting. Unfortunately President Paul Biya, Robert Mugabe and other old names wasn,t invited to the traditional Luncheon organized by President Trump.
Just few minutes before the Luncheon, President Biya published a picture on his official twitter page informing Cameroonians that he was on his way to the Luncheon organized by Trump but he wasn,t spotted in the Luncheon which clearlye suggest that he was denied access to the Luncheon probably because his name was,nt in the list of invitees.
- President Biya read his UN speech in an empty hall
The refusal of president Trump to invite President Biya to his Luncheon brought down the self-esteem of president Biya and passed an indirect message to other presidents that he was an insignificant African President hence the reason why only a hand full of presidents and journalists were present when President Biya was speaking at the 72nd UN General Assembly meeting.
3. THIRD SETBACK
While president Biya was speaking at the 72 UN assembly meeting, more than 2000 Southern Cameroonians all over the United States of America gathered infront of the United Nations Headquarters and also in front of President Biya’s Hotel in New York chanting anti-Biya slogans and demanding the release of all those arbitrarily arrested in connection with the ongoing Anglophone crisis, and separation from French Cameroon. This action clearly lowered the morale of President Paul Biya.
Ironically the 72 session of the UN assembly meeting appeared to be the best ever attended by first lady Chantal Biya.
Upon her arrival to NewYork, Chantal Biya was warmly welcome by Cameroonians in New York.
Chantal Biya was invited to the Luncheon organized by Melania Trump for the wives of the African head of states while her husband was sitting somewhere with his hand on his jaw.
She even took a picture with Brigitte Macron; the wife of the president of France; Emmanuel Macron.
From all indication 2018 will be the end of President Paul Biya political career but is this a good send off to somebody who have peacefully ruled your country for 35yrs???. Leave a reply through the comment box below……
