Why Cameroon’s Paul Biya Is Suffering – Primate Ayodele

The president of Cameroon, Paul Biya has been in the News for some days following the unpleasant scene he created at the US-Africa leaders’ summit.

Paul Biya who is hardly seen in public surprised many at the summit when he started behaving strangely; He was led to the podium to deliver a speech but forgot about the place he was. He was heard asking his aide that led him to the podium about where he was.

He clearly had no clue about where he was at that time and kept on staring at the speech written for him while passing gas in an unpleasant manner in the presence of leaders around the world.

While this is quite unfortunate, it is the fulfilment of Primate Ayodele’s warning which he gave in 2022 regarding the Cameroonian president. Primate Ayodele in a viral . uploaded on his tiktok account advised the president to step down because he will be incapacitated. The man of God categorically mentioned that the president’s trouble will start from dementia into other life threatening illnesses.

These were his words

‘’I am seeing that the Cameroonian president, unless he resigns, the country will not move forward. The country is about to break but don’t allow it so it won’t cause war. What I am telling the president is he doesn’t understand the government anymore and his people and military are angry. The minority are in pain, resources are not flowing, the country isn’t doing well. You have spent too much time in the position, why not take your time to do the right thing before the country begins to have problems? Before your health begins to have problems? You will start with dementia, Cameroonian president will have dementia disease….’’’

What Paul Biya suffered at the US-Africa summit is dementia because it has to do with easily forgetting things no matter how important they are. Paul Biya flew from his country to the venue, was aware of the summit but when it was time to deliver his speech, he totally forgot everything, pronouncing how bad his dementia is just as Primate Ayodele forewarned.
