US assistant secretary of state in charge of African Affairs has expressed the wish of the United States of America to see Cameroonians enjoy peace and serenity that will foster investment.
Tibor Nagy Jr. was talking to the press shortly after an audience granted him by President Paul Biya Monday 18 March 2019.
He says “American investors require certain conditions to permit a profitable investment in Cameroon. So we will like the country to go in that direction.”
On the question of what was discussed as concerns the Anglophone crisis. The US diplomat mentioned that diplomatic discussions are always confidential but states that his talk with Paul Biya was ‘frank, honest and direct’.
Mr. Tibor appreciated what he says is President Paul Biya’s ‘wisdom and knowledge on what is happening in Cameroon’.
On the high media attention accorded to Tibor Nagy’s statements on France 24 TV and Radio RFI prior to his arrival in Cameroon, the diplomat thinks the Cameroonian press is vibrant and enthusiastic adding that “I am neither a devil nor an angel. I am just a human being like everyone else”.
The meeting between the US Assistant Secretary of State in charge of African Affairs and President Paul Biya has been highly awaited not only by Cameroonians but the world as a whole.
This was because earlier media outings by the US diplomat on burning issues happening in Cameroon notably the Anglophone crisis and the detention of Professor Maurice Kamto, 2018 presidential election candidate.
Tibor Nagy by telling the press that US wants the best for Cameroonians, political commentators say speaks volumes of what was discussed.
Cameroonians today they argued, do not enjoy their fatherland as violation of fundamental human rights by the regime is a daily issue.
Beside this, Cameroonians in the North West and South West regions have not known peace since 2016.
All these mean if America wants the best for Cameroonians, Tibor Nagy must have definitely stated the need for the bloodshed in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon to come to an end.
Before arriving Cameroon, Nagy had described the efforts made by Biya’s government to solve the crisis as ‘ineffective and not proactive”.
With the US seen as the measuring rod of democracy in the world, the incarceration of political prisoners by the regime would not have been applauded in the course of the audience with President Paul Biya.
The country of Donald Trump wants more Americans to invest in Cameroon and this cannot be feasible in a politically unstable country.
As Tibor Nagy leaves the Unity Palace, analysts think modifications on how to solve the Anglophone crisis and the issue with militants of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement party is expected to be witnessed in the actions of the regime.
Critics hold that of the US Diplomat’s objective stance will remain, even after President Paul Biya offered him the golden gift.
“Did the CAF president, Ahmad not stand his grounds after receiving a similar gift in 2018?” an observer questioned.
