The controversial Symposium on the Social Actions of the First Lady Chantal Biya has come and gone, and the coming days, weeks,months or years, will certainly reveal the mask behind this symposium, that had so many opposing points of views, as thosewho see beyond today, saw theCOVERED IDEAbehind this.
Top intellectuals, Politicians and even University Authorities were fighting for and against this event, which according to the opposition it was just a waste of resources, because similar actors like Chantal Biya have come, performed and gone unnoticed without loud applauds.The Symposium amidst every controversy finally kicked off on Tuesday Nov.1 2016, and closed its curtains on Wednesday Nov. 3 2016 at the University of Yaounde 2 Soa Campus.
Participants debated solely on the different social activities and involvements of the First Lady, wife of President Paul Biya, from Her Chantal Biya Foundation, to her Chantal Biya International Reference Center, to CERAC Group, to being UNESCO's Ambassador of Good Will, to African Synergies, to being a devoted mother and wife etc.. heaping pile of praises to whom praise was already due.
The Symposium that called her 'Mother Teresa of Cameroon' was filled with litanies of praises in her honour, and during the second dayof its activities, participants quoted Max Weber,his ideology about Social actions, his inspirations and political involvement, all these to announce the birth of a new philosophical doctrine called "Chantalism Biyalism", which will henceforth be instituted in all Cameroonian universities.
At the end of the Chantal Biya's laudations, the participants concluded on a proposal that Government should attribute a New Legal Status to the First Lady,and if this proposal is adopted by the government, it will be sent to the National Assembly for a Constitutional Modification.
An Honorary Degree was to be awarded to the First Lady, in compensation for all her charitable actions carried out in and outside Cameroon with the people's money.The Symposium whose organization budget of 65 Million F CFA came out from the Public Treasury, ended on a very satisfactory note, to the participants, who were none other than Government Authorities, Political Scientists, Legal Practitioners, Economists, Sociologists, Internationalists and other Top University Officials.
