Paul Biya Posts On Facebook, Begs For Forgiveness!

By Eric Tataw – Tuesday May 7, 2019.

Paul Biya, Cameroon’s President since 1982.

For the first time in three years since an armed conflict broke out in the two English-speaking regions of the North West and South West, Paul Biya, President of the Central African country of Cameroon has used the word “Forgive”

Paul Biya, 86, Cameroon’s President since 1982 posted a statement on his official Facebook Page, talking about forgiving and forgetting as the most important thing in Cameroon, urging Cameroonians to look at the future and forget the past.

“The important thing, today, is to forgive and forget, to tender together towards a common goal. We cannot, at the same time, look at the future and live in the past. Mutual forgiveness is the path that leads to sustainable peace.”, Paul Biya said in a Facebook post, Tuesday May 7, 2019.

On the comment section of his post, Paul Biya received tons of disapproval from the Cameroonian public, with many still holding the position that the President is a dictator, economy destroyer, murderer and Genocidal actor.

In one of the comments, a Facebook account by Airforceone Alaan said “Have you become a fan of social networks Mr President? Why are you talking about forgiveness? Do you blame yourself for something about Cameroonians? If this is the case then ask for an official forgiveness on National Television to the Cameroonian people”

Many have expressed surprise at the President’s post, saying that for over three years, he has instructed members of the Cameroon army to torch villages and kill thousands of innocent civilians in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions.

Others say they’re baffled that President Paul Biya is asking for forgiveness when there’re many innocent people still held in various detention facilities under deplorable conditions at his behest.

Many more people say they’re indeed surprised that given the fact that President Paul Biya has bragged on several occasions that he would neutralize Ambazonian fighters in the two English-speaking regions, his asking for forgiveness would have inspired many if he had called for dialogue with the separatists.

Unrest in Cameroon’s two English-speaking regions began in October 2016 as a disagreement in language but government mismanaged it, turning it into a demand by majority of Anglophones in the North West and South West for a separate state called Ambazonia.

Gun battles have ensued and the government has been accused of numerous Human Rights violation, including targeted killings and the burning down of entire villages according to credible reports from the US Ambassador to Cameroon, Peter Henry Barlerin, reputable Human Rights Lawyer Agbor Balla and Bishops of Mamfe and Kumbo and just recently, The Human Rights Watch.

In as much as we are all human it is never too late to stop ,think and admit that we are wrong.Furthermore it is essential to know that saying sorry does not make everything go away.Therefore our actions should demonstrate how sorry we are.Mr. Biya should proceed by doing things which shows he is ready to arpeace Cameroonians not continue angering them.just a few hours ago I saw more than 300 soldiers of the BIR heading for muyuka and he says he is sorry.

There is always a time in life when everyone of us must face the Almighty GOD, the great “IAM” . How about those he has kill while wanting power, money, and women that he didn’t deserve. He kill family members just because he wanted someone else’s woman , and silent any evidence, then come those he kill because he want all anglophones people to be wiped out just to continue to stay in power. The time has come for all these people to stand at the gate to serve you with your ticket to hell. If you did know Mr Paul heaven and hell are real. You made all angle phones to fleas their pun Country to other nation just for peace of mind, and what ever those nations can offer for them, and their family. Ohh our countrymen which we are now considered to be aliens. Mr Paul welcome to the gate of hell. You are one clear Demond from hell.

Prove you are sorry by declaring end of war, total withdrawal of LRC troupes and release and compensation of all detained since 2016

Who is this monster kidding? Ambazonians really don’t have anything to do with whatever the Hitlerian dictator is saying

Forgiveness, Is it as a result of the 13th of this month? Whatever, it’s not welcome Mr dictator and what you should note here is to beginning to think on how to sign the Ambazonia liberation document. You can’t eat your cake and have it back.

He who comes to equity must come with clean hands. A president cannot kill so many thousands of people and just get up one day to say I am sorry. What happens to those who have lost loved ones and their properties destroyed.What about those who have been forced into exile? Biya,you are responsible and must be liable for all what has happened.

Go rape your own fucking self… and then beg for forgiveness.

Savage demonic creature.

I will like Mr Biya to take the pragmatic approach of thinking and doing. Practicalize your sorry and don’t remain only on ideology…
