Why I'm Running
Many in our society are treated as second-class citizens. We live in a time when divisions cut deeply across our people and our government does little to bridge the divide.
I am running to ensure that all Cameroonians are treated equally under the law. Whether Francophone or Anglophone, we are Cameroonian first. Our government must take an active role in facilitating national unity. Anything less is a failure of leadership.
