The national chairman of the Social Democratic Front-SDF has rubbished Prime Minister Philemon Yang’s statement that the SDF party is like a barren tree. Chairman Ni John Fru Ndi who was in Donga Mantung Division as part of his campaign tour, told militants and sympathizers of the SDF that Yang’s appointment as Prime Minister, head of Government came thanks to the SDF party. Addressing the mamaud crowd in Ndu and Nkambe, Ni John Fru Ndi revealed that before the launching of the SDF, the post of Prime Minister was scrapped off, and it was only brought back so that an Anglophone could be appointed to fight the SDF reasons why all the Prime Ministers since then have all been Anglophones from Achidi Achu to Musongue, Inoni and Yang today.
Harping on the statement made by Prime Minister Yang Philemon that the SDF party is like a barren tree that should be felled; SDF national chairman rubbished the statement by stating that a barren tree that produces shade is more viable than a tree that produces fruits that would never receive the visit of birds or flies. He compared the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement-CPDM to a guava tree that produces acidic fruits. In reacting to another statement made by the Prime Minister that the SDF party talks a lot about power whereas they do not have the power to create a school, hospital, health center or construct a road, Ni John Fru Ndi questioned whether Philemon Yang is leaving any legacy for the people of the North West Region of Cameroon. He said Yang’s stay in the Prime Ministry will end up like a shadow resembling Achidi Achu Simon tenure that was booted out of the Prime Ministry without any legacy. He said Inoni constructed almost all the streets in Bakigili, Musongue did the same in Fako, yet Yang Philemon is unable to tar just a single street in Oku. Ni John Fru Ndi discarded the notion by the CPDM to impose Unidentified Flying Objects-UFOs as candidates in the Donga Mantung Centre Constituency. He denounced the fact that money earned from dubious contracts has invaded the Donga Mantung Division to buy votes, yet he advised the population to collect the money and chop to later slab it promoters with a sanction votes.
He warned that any injustice, before, during and after elections will be a concoction towards electoral violence. According to Ni John Fru Ndi, the SDF stands for justice during, before and after elections. Recalling the famous Ndu Genocide, Ni John Fru Ndi questioned the crime that the people of Ndu committed to deserve such inhuman treatment. The crowd was stunted when he revealed that government had compensated those whose properties were destroyed during that time yet the people of Ndu who lost properties and lives were ignored. The Biya regime, Fru Ndi added his heartless and should be vomited from Donga Mantung Division.On the hot political climate in Ndu and Nkambe, he prescribed calm and serenity but when further to warn that anybody who raises his/her hand on Mary Awudu Mbaya again (Hon. Awudu Mbaya’s wife) should be aware that the act is a declaration for war. Before receiving the blessing from the population to pass to the parliamentary candidate and councilors, he committed himself by announcing that any MP or Mayor that doesn’t work for the interest of the people who elected him shall be replaced.
