President Donald Trump: Reversing Government Overreach – who should control your natural resources?

President Donald Trump in this video captioned Reversing Government Overreach makes a comparative remark on how natural resources of Utah are managed. In Trump’s opinion which I fully support, central governments do not have a mastery of natural resources found thousand and thousand miles away. In my humble opinion, natural resources amongst other factors are the sources of conflicts worldwide and most especially in Africa where people have all but get nothing. Funny enough, the now African rulers are not interested in how citizens feel about how such resources are managed, they rather turn to European, Asian and other continents to buy dictatorship spirits and habits, and protection with natural resources. This is the definition of France’s relationship with its oversea territories especially in Francophone Africa as it’s called.
 Believe me or not, no African leader will make such assertions as Trump has done in this video because they want people to learn but they don’t want people to know. Such habits of keeping people in the dark turns to open new pages in people’s mentalities regarding their natural resource management. This you will agree with me has been part of the reasons for secessionist attempts in Sudan, Spain, and even in Cameroon. In this video which I hope you’ll watch, Trump says “Some people think that the natural resources of Utah should be controlled by a handful of very distant bureaucrats located in Washington DC.” Trump says that people with these thoughts are wrong. Take Utah for your area with natural resources and Washington DC for Yaoundé, you’ll understand that there is a wide margin between those who have and those who control. The families and communities of such areas know and love their land the best, they know best how to protect and conserve their land for many generations to come. Trump says “your timeless bond with the outdoors should not be replaced with the whims of regulators thousands and thousands of miles away.” Trump adds that “they don’t know your land and truly, they don’t care for your land like you do.

This is a fundamental truth and I never stop thinking and writing truthfully.

WHAT’S UP AFRICA: President Robert Mugabe removed as World Health Organisation goodwill ambassador.

President Robert Mugabe has been removed from the post of World Health Organisation’s goodwill ambassador just a week after his appointment.

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe

“I have listened carefully to all who have expressed their concerns,” WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement. He had previously praised Zimbabwe for its commitment to public health. But the appointment of Mugabe was met by a wave of surprise and condemnation. The UK government, the Canadian prime minister, the Wellcome Trust, the NCD Alliance, UN Watch, the World Heart Federation, Action Against Smoking and Zimbabwean lawyers and social media users were among those who criticised the decision.
But critics pointed out that Zimbabwe’s healthcare system had collapsed in recent years. Staff often go without pay, medicines are in short supply, and Mr Mugabe, who has outlived the average life expectancy in his country by three decades, travels abroad for medical treatment.

Hey Mr Tedros. What’s up? So the slogan has changed to “let’s prove the possible to be impossible?

Anglophone Crisis: What coincidence

Many people have talked and written about the ‘anglophone crisis’ that has for closed to ten months now been topping news headlines in the country.

My comment: The 2017 results of exams organised by the Cameroon General Certificate of Education Board is a true reflection of employment rates in Cameroon. Statistics from the board have it that , 38000 candidates registered the GCE advanced level, 33037 candidates sat for the exams and 11670 passed, recording a percentage passed of 35.52%. The results witnessed a drastic drop compared to 2016 were some 46000 candidates registered and 43000 sat the exams and 29000 passed giving a percentage passed of 66.52%. I have only used statistics for the GCE Advanced Level because this level produces some scholars to the job market. When you look at these statistics and compare them to the number of candidates who apply for jobs in Cameroon or those who write public exams in Cameroon, you see similarities in their results. Why am I bringing up this argument? Many people want children to go back to school but they’re not thinking of those who have graduated from higher education institutions and are still loitering around doing odd jobs like selling SIM cards, selling bitter cola, ridding commercial motorcycles and others that have almost nothing to do with knowledge acquired from colleges. This is therefore a clear indication that people are going to schools and people are graduating from schools with certificates that cannot put food on their tables.

The other argument raised by people who want children to go back to school is that, children will end up going into drugs, unwanted pregnancies, theft and other immoralities. This argument falls between legality and legitimacy. I say so because we’ve also seen too many graduates who are masters of the above cited immortalities as a result of idleness. Where are the jobs?

What should we therefore do? Let’s open the job market that has been closed by ageing and unproductive so called elites. OMG, CRTV is calling back “veteran journalists” at a time when young graduates from schools and departments of journalism have no jobs.

D’Banj Announces New Album Release Date and Tracklist

D’banj features in CNN African’s voices (CNN)

The time lag seems to be over. D’Banj aka Koko Master has finally unveiled the official track-list and release date for his long over-due album titled ‘King Don Come ‘. Note should be taken the album which was due for release on the 7th of July suddenly went faint without any formal notification from D’Banj. Fans were disappointed and some bloggers wished D’banj had chosen something (like business) rather than music which they claimed he’s not been up to his best in recent years.

When D’Banj dropped two tracks off this album, I enjoyed and appreciated ‘It’s Not A Lie’ ft. Harrysong & Wande Coal. The other track was ‘Be With You‘, which were meant to serve as appetizers for the album(according to tooxclusive.com).

The King Don Come album is now rescheduled to drop on the 25th of August.

The official tracklist was unveiled yesterday evening by the Koko Master himself.

Check the tracklist below.
