Douala - Social Democratic Front (SDF) Presidential hopeful for the October 2018, Presidential election, Honourable Joshua Osih, has vowed to dump the Francs CFA which Cameroon is currently using as legal tender and establish the country’s monetary sovereignty.

In addition he has promised to the Opening of a Truth, Reconciliation and Reparation National Conference in his 24 point manifesto published in Douala recently. 

Hon. Osih, also vowed to shut down the National Advanced School of Administration and Magistracy, best known by its French acronym as ENAM. 

He also promise to reduce the size of the government to a maximum of 20 Ministers and double the salary of civil servants over 5 years.

The comments by the Presidential hopeful via his official twitter account generated a lot of reactions, with some of his followers applauding his declaration, while others rather advocated him to bring reforms to the institute which he opined is not helping to develop the country in anyway.

In his tweet castigating ENAM, the SDF flag bearer said “the 10 most developed countries in the world have no ENAM.” He said ENAM is a “colonial legacy” which a strong measure should be taken to shut down.

He said his view on closing ENAM, “is a strong measure…ENAM is a symbol and it is necessary to be able to attack the symbol to advance”

Reacting to the Presidential candidate’s tweet, some of his is supporters, heralded it, and beckoned on Osih to also replace the FCFA currency that is in use in Cameroon. Other reactors to Osih’s declaration told the candidate that “not everything is bad”, as such, he has to pick and keep what is good of the institution and then discard what has made the institution obsolete.

In a previous tweet, the candidate said, “my programme previews the immediate closure of ENAM”

Osih’s campaign to shutdown ENAM comes at a time when many have made derogatory comments and negative assessments about the institution. Some people have termed it as a breeding ground for corrupt officials, who have put a price tag on justice and service offered to the different communities, which they have been dispatched to serve.

Entrance examinations into the centre, have also been mired in bribery and corruption scandals as some candidates succeed without even sitting for the examinations, while others buy their way in with FCFA millions, and others depend on their ‘godfathers’ in high places in Government circles, who just as with a node of the head, their godsons or daughters will be admitted.

The institute has been seen in the eyes of the poor and middle class who do not have the financial might to buy entrance into the school, as an academy or breeding ground for sons and daughters of regime barons, who are trained to keep the machinery put in place by their parents and present ruling class to maintain a firm grip over national life and ensure that their machinery keeps running.

Osih also promises the 24 million Cameroonians a plethora of reforms that will make Cameroon an Eldorado to all and sundry.
