Cameroon: Did Paul Biya burn Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo'o's opportunity card as a possible successor

Did Paul Biya burn Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo'o's opportunity card as a possible successor by dismissing him and appointing Rene Sadi as a Minister without any portfolio? These two personalities have often been presented by opinion holders as potential candidates to succeed Paul Biya,in case of incapacity.

Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo'o is under police scrutiny and scanner while Emmanuel René Sadi is maintained though without any portfolio, following the cabinet reshuffle that took place on the 5th of March, 2018. Following these very tense atmosphere following the cabinet reshuffle, the head of state has destroyed the chances that Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo'o had in the succession race.

As far as Emmanuel René Sadi is concerned, Mutations speculates that " Emmanuel René sadi' greatest blunder and weakness was the failure of the implementation of the Decentralization process, coupled with the unresolved sociopolitical crisis rocking the Anglophone regions of the Cameroon's.

It's been more than a month since the Sub Divisional officer for Batibo was arrested and closely followed by that of the Regional Delegate for Social Affairs all in Momo Division" A situation that was never announced by the deposed Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization,Emmanuel René Sadi.

As a sanction, he was demoted from his ministerial portfolio as he was a disappointment to the head of state" According to Mutation the succession path is now closed. This closure of the succession path therefore means that Emmanuel René sadi will no longer have the privilege to control the National territory and as such forfeit his huge network of appointments of Sub Divisional officers, Senior Divisional officers and Governors. Very close and intimate observers, according to the press think that whenever the President reflects in that direction, " he feels the need to place trusted ones under police scrutiny.

The President does not only protects his adversaries but as an utmost priority desire preparing his departure from the political scene discretely. When Emmanuel René sadi was the Secretary General of the CPDM, the illustrious son of Yoko was already highly esteemed and prepared as Paul Biya's successor . As concerns Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo'o as reported by Mutations, he was brutally sent out of the race.

The erstwhile Minister of Defence and Transport has now seen his dreams and aspirations shattered and battered. He can't any longer succeed his father and as such withing the very close cycle of potential successors of Paul Biya, only Laurent Esso and Louis Paul Motaze are still in contention. Louis Paul Motaze had been repositioned as the Minister of Finance while Laurent Esso maintained as the minister of Justice and keeper of the seals. They have preserved their respective opportunities to possibly succeed Paul Biya.
