“I find Prof Tagou’s book refreshingly captivating, original and above all up-to-date. For the first time with no taboo and no bias, a Cameroonian, scholar hits head-on theories and practices of tribalism in Africa at large and specifically in Cameroon and Ivory Coast and handles them with serenity. The Rotation in High Office Democracy proposal questions in the most ridiculous way countries where the main obstacle to democracy is the mode of power transfer and retention for survival purposes. It is a pragmatic breath of fresh air for our nations bruised by colonialism and prejudice, then for new rulers and their wandering. It is both a solution to the Anglophone crisis and an answer to other ethno-regional problems facing Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire and some African countries…”

“A piece of Bassa wisdom holds that each tree builds up from its roots. Metaphorically speaking, democracy should be like the earth, universally shared that feeds each tree according to the nature of its soil. Celestin Tagou, in an eloquently relevant style, demonstrates that democracy should benefit from an endogenous appraisal according to the historical, sociological and anthropological diversity of each people. For democracy, he puts forward a theoretically innovating model for diverse societies: Rotation in High Office Democracy.”
Dr. François Bingono Bingono, Journalist – Lecturer – Anthropologist
