At the end of the last National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the Social Democratic Front held in Ntarikon in Bamenda in early November 2016, the participants resolved to meet on Saturday 10 December 2016 in Yaounde, the political capital, for the assizes of this month of December 2016.
A communique issued on Wednesday, December 7 by the leadership of the political party leader of the opposition confirmed this. But, unexpectedly, the members of the NEC decided Friday to change the place of meeting. The destination of Yaounde was canceled in favor of Ntarikon, mythical place that has hitherto sheltered the majority of the foundations of the SDF, political party created 26 years ago.
“We have decided to bring the NEC’s work back to Bamenda because of the sad events that are taking place in this part of the country,” said an official from the Scale Party, before unveiling the topics that will be on the agenda.
“By splitting up last month in Bamenda, the draft agenda focused on preparations for the next year’s Party Congress. But with the latest developments around the claims in the South-West and North-West, we decided to put on the agenda the crisis that persists in the Anglophone part of Cameroon.
