It’s really a pity when youths are used to perform acts of corruption whereas we all know how bad corruption can jeopardise youth’s future.
On Sunday, the 9th of October 2011, Cameroonians were called out for the presidential election. Your fellow GYACer was accredited as a National Observer; and I went out to observe how our democracy is moving forward. Some of the acts that I witnessed from my fellow young compatriots were unbelievable. In a context where we are calling for youths to build responsible generation and join efforts to fight this enemy which is not allowing young Africans to live a decent live.
I use this occasion to call for all young Cameroonians, Africans and others:
- Voting two, three or four times is a fraud,
- Determining your vote choice on the basis of a sum of money that someone gave you is a lack of personality,
- Changing vote’s reports because one has promised you a reward is a sin against your nation.
“Youths have to take their future in hand as from now”. We will still not spare energy when saying this.
Fellow GYACers, let’s join hands to continue building civic skill of our compatriots who still need this support. Politicians are really using youths in countries for purposes which do not benefit to the youth, but are serving just their egoistic interests.
In Cameroon, the upcoming joined municipal and legislative elections in 2012 should not have such behaviours. I hereby call for all Cameroon GYACers to start working as from now, let’s put hands together to curb down corruption during 2012 elections. Let's train our fellow youths to fight against electoral corruption in our country. These politicians should no more use corruption to turn youths into beast of burden.
Dear youths, open eyes and see what is better for your future and that of your nation.
