The bishops pointed out that their position will be read out during next Sunday’s church services, and appealed for “the sense of responsibility of Cameroonians” so that their choice is guided solely by their conscience.

The bishops in other words, advised that citizens should not vote based on ethnic, linguistic, religious or cultural grounds.
