“Army and nation, together for a united peaceful and prosperous Cameroon  » is the theme for which the national unity day  2024, is celebrated. The head of state Paul Biya aims to reduce the gap between the population and its army  especially at a time when the North West, South West and the Northern regions of Cameroon have been faced with some political setbacks that have threatened its unity and integration towards a one and indivisible cameroon.

In the west region I saw images where the military went out to clean gutters to sweep the road, to show to the people that the army is not against the people rather, with the people. SO, peace and security is of primary importance to any community and to us in Cameroon. Unfortunately,  Unfortunately we had this small political differences in South West and North West and we believe politicians unitedly will solve the p roblem and i don’t believe in arms you can not solve any problem using arm, killing people, killing our brothers and sisters”
