Some people in the English-speaking part of Cameroon have come to think that the central government of the state has become increasingly unable to practice inclusive politics, that it is unwilling to include all parts of the country in an effective management of resources, put in place an appropriate design and an organizing instrument of policy, with an efficient discharge of functions, designed at answering to the needs of the Anglophone minority. Rather than doing this, the government is seen as putting in place a disingenuous falsification of republicanism. The question these people keep asking is if the government can in future exhibit a predictable, open and enlightened policy-making through a state system that is imbued with professional ethos acting in furtherance of every part of the country? Can Anglophones rely on the government in Yaoundé to provide a conceivably more decisive constitutional regulation and pursue an integrated process of development that is a reliable option to secession? These are the questions that have come to represent what is referred to as the Anglophone Problem in Cameroon.
