Reacting to the speech of the Head of State to the Nation, the president of the Social Democratic Front believes that the Head of State has proposed nothing as solutions to the problems that arise in the English-speaking area.
Interviewed by Radio Equinoxe during the special program décryptage on the speech of the Head of State Paul Biya to the Nation, John Fru Ndi, chairman of the Social Democratic Front (SDF), the main opposition party in Cameroon, did not hide his disappointment after the speech of the he who has been at the head of the country for 34 years.
For him, the President of the Republic has, for example, proposed no solution to the problems that arise in the English-speaking part of the country. “I do not expect anything from this speech. He did not say anything about the young people who were killed … He did not say anything about the return of anglophone students to school. Whether Anglophone students go back to school or not, he does not care, the schools reopen or not, it’s not his problem … ” he said, while reaffirming his support for lawyers , English-speaking teachers and students who, in his opinion, only defend their rights.
In this traditional speech to the Nation, the Head of State did not spare the protesters who rose in the anglophone part of the country. He did not hesitate to call them “extremists, manipulated and instrumentalized“. “Cameroonians have lost their lives; Public and private buildings have been destroyed; The most sacred symbols of our nation have been profaned; The economic activities were temporarily paralyzed. All this, you will agree, is UNACCEPTABLE, “hammered Paul Biya. He promised to draw all the consequences of the various investigations in progress on this subject.
