President Biya's first son with late wife Irene Biya, was among those present at the airport yesterday Friday Dec, 15, 2017 to welcome him from France, where he joined over 60 other Heads of States in the just ended 'One Planet Summit' on climate change.
Frank Biya's presence among those at the airport has set tongues wagging, as it is the very first time in the history of President Biya's official and private in and out visits ceremonies, that his son is seen in pictured.
Cameroonians are thinking aloud, questioning whether the Head of State is sending out a coded message that his 47 years old son will succeed him when he retires from the Etoudi throne he's been sitting on for 35 years.
With similar cases that happened in Gabon, Togo, Congo, Cameroonians are having the feeling that Paul Biya will impose his son as the next President of Cameroon, representing his party.
It is true that Franck Emmanuel Biya has not been openly seen in the political milieu of Cameroon, and so far his name does no appear anywhere in the organigramme of the Cameroon government, but closed door sources in the high places say he has been very influential in every decision regarding the appointment of members of the government, and even in his father's CPDM party.
The very discreet and reserved Franck Biya is known to be a businessman and not a politician, but as the saying goes 'impossible n'est pas Camerounais', our lenses are fixed towards Etoudi, and our ears up and open to hear the big announcement SOONEST.
