Open Letter to Statesman Emeritus Njoh Litumbe

Dear Sir,
I am writing to express my profound gratitude and salutations from the grass field to you, I listened keenly to that Morning Safari Programme on Tuesday 18th of February 2014, which was akin to the Cameroon Calling Programme of May 1990 which precipitated the birth of multi-party politics in Cameroon. Your articulation and acute presentation of the historical facts about independence and reunification of Cameroon, rekindled a lot of hope in many Anglophones. You’re a non-nonsense political activist as opposed to your adversary on the same programme, Honourable Enow Tanjong whose views about reunification was either hypocritical or an attempt to plague some one in high office. Judging from your presentation, you faulted the British, UN, for arbitrary forcing Southern Cameroons with a two option of gaining independence in 1961 by joining the Eastern Region of Nigeria or La Republique de Cameroun. Your satirical tone did not spare late Ahmadou Ahidjo who outsmarted John Ngu Foncha at the Foumban constitutional talks.
Dear Mola and great one, your sharp reflections about events as they took place from the defeat of the Germans in 1916, to the League of Nations in 1930 and the termination of the mandatory powers of the colonial masters that gave birth to La Republique on 1st January 1960 and the Plebiscite of 11 February 1961, the day of re-unification of Southern Cameroon put you on high pedestal. Hon. Enow Tanjong should better understand that history is like a mirror, you either look into the mirror and adjust yourself or you break the mirror and face the consequences of breaking it. Life does not begin and end with us. William Shakespeare describes the world as a stage where actors come and go and the world remains. Many Anglophones have complained bitterly that the union with La Republique du Cameroun from the Plebiscite of 11 February 1961, to October 1, 1961 was a union between master and slave. Their arguments have gained practical evidence on grounds that no Anglophone has ever headed the following ministries; Finance, Territorial Administration, Defense, right up to the Secretary General at the Presidency. In the diplomatic cycle no Anglophone has ever been appointed as Ambassador either in America or Great Britain, all English speaking countries.
To crown it all, dear Mola be steadfast and keep the Anglo-Saxon culture of truth, honesty, accountability and transparency in tact. You are one out of many like Cardinal Christian Wighan Tumi, Barrister Ntumfor Nico Halle who still incarnates some of our lost glories like virtue and truth.
Bravo Mola, accept greetings from the North West Region
