Fru Ndi Lambastes Reunification, Says Biya Failed to Recognize It Heroes

By Fai Cassian Ndi
Ni John Fru Ndi, chairman of the leading opposition party in Cameroon has declared that there is no time for Cameroonians to continue to dream when everything around them is falling apart. According to Fru Ndi, President Biya's reunification speech was like a pack of disillusion that has shown the regime's inability to provide concrete solutions to basic problems of Cameroonians. SDF National Chairman made that declaration at the end of the civil and military parade yesterday in Buea . According to him , this celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Reunification has brought nothing to Cameroonians . After a critical and comparative study of the organizing committee SDF chairman questioned the number of Anglophones in it . To him, the SDF will not close their eyes because Anglophones are not happy. In a furious mode SDF chieftain said that normally the celebrations were suppose to have taken place in 2011. "We are celebrating 53 years of independence and reunification", he reiterated. Fru Ndi also discarded the speech by President Biya to the youth as another blatant empty promise. He wondered how Biya will create 250,000 jobs for young people in a year when his government is unable to industrialize the country since his accession to power in 1982 . He said what transpired during the celebrations in Buea is not enough to convince Cameroonians. "They are not fools" and these lies will no longer pass", he hammered.
He blasted the Reunification celebration as complete failure that will anger more Cameroonians. He decried how the Biya regime has destroyed its own very foundation. I was shocked that no photo of the real actors of this important moment in our history was present at the march-pass. "I saw no picture of President Ahidjo, or John Ngu Foncha , Muna or Endeley . What are we celebrating? he asked with a frown on his face. He wondered why Biya could not promise the entire South West the construction of a culvert at a point that they were expecting to get giant projects like the Limbe Deep Seaport and or the Kumba-Mamfe road. These, he said are signs of regime failure in meeting the aspiration of the people.
