Cameroon – Anglophone Problem: Mohamadou Ahidjo, son of the late former President Ahmadou Ahidjo says “Violence is not a solution”

Written by Deckson N.

The Itinerant Ambassador to the Presidency of the Republic believes that it is time to stop the clashes and open the dialogue between the parties.

It is very rare that Mohamadou Ahidjo, ambassador to the Presidency of the Republic, speaks publicly. But it took a mood swing in Bamenda and Buea to openly express his position. Speaking to our colleague of the daily newspaper Le Messager on Monday, December 19, 2016, he believes that in the situation that plagues Cameroon by this crisis, “violence is not the solution“.

Indeed, according to the newspaper, it is with deep sadness that the eldest son of the late former President of the Republic of Cameroon, Ahmadou Ahidjo, deplores the situation currently experienced by the two English-speaking Regions. And, as a solution, he believes that “it is time to put an end to these clashes and to dialogue with the authorities. We must find a solution to this problem, “he said.

To the question of whether the “Anglophones” were not deceived by President Ahidjo in the agreements of the Foumban Conference, the itinerant ambassador replied in the negative. For him, President Ahidjo, of regretted memory, has always been honest vis-à-vis his decision-makers.

It was at the end of this conference that the Federal Republic of Cameroon, later the United Republic of Cameroon, was born. With President Paul Biya, there has been a strengthening of this national unity. And it is under his impulse that the use of French and English has developed. “

However, Mohamadou Ahidjo remains convinced that the rapid establishment of a genuine decentralization of Cameroon will put an end to these surface swells, says the newspaper.
