The Choice
Creating a Nation that works for future generations
58 years since independence, the people of Cameroon are at the verge of a constitutional crisis that could implode by the end of 2018. Cameroon today faces endemic poverty for the masses and mass corruption in the highest echelons of government, and as the crisis in the English-speaking regions becomes more acute, a majority of international stakeholders are convinced that absent fundamental changes to the status quo, current and future generations of Cameroonians will inherit a legacy of systemic collapse. Despite the calls for dialogue, repression remains the preferred tool of government. This site is dedicated to the solutions, and the standard bearer - Akere Muna, a man most objective observers believe has the character, capacity and capabilities to bring peace and stability to this important geo-strategic and resource-rich country in the Gulf of Guinea.
