Unconfirmed reports state that the SDF party has lost all 7 seats in the Noth West region. Meaning that Fru Ndi has equally lost his chances of becoming a senator. The stakes were high in Santa between Fru Ndi and Achidi Achu. Fru Ndi has finally lost and the only hope he still has is to be appointed by the head of State. Ie each region is supposed to have a total of 10 senators; 7 are expected to be voted while the remaining 3 are going to be appointed by the Head of State.
Mean time, SDF won all the 7 seats in the West region and also in the Adamawa. These results are still unconfirmed and the rest of the results are still being awaited.
But why the senatorial elections in the first place? Our country is poor and you will be surprised to hear that each senator is expected to earn a salary of 3.000.000 frs per month. Meaning that out of the 100 senators, our country is expected to spend 300.000.000 frs per month as payment to senators. …In fact this is really much money; and such monies would have been used to improve on our infrastructures, and other amenities.
Also to note is the fact that Frank Biya is a CPDM senatorial candidate heading the south region. In case he wins, what will be the consequence? Since one of the roles of the senate is to take over the country in case the president is not there ie during the transitional period and now that Frank Biya is a senator, probably Biya might want to throw in the towel and convey the baton to Frank;
What then becomes of the secrete dealings between Biya and Fru Ndi in case Frank becomes a senator?
What if Biya decides not to appoint Fru Ndi among the 30 senators that are at his discretion to appoint?
Let’s wait and see….
