Written by Deckson N.
Cameroons leading opposition party, the Social Democratic Front, SDF has held its National Executive Committee meeting, NEC in Bamenda ,North West Region with focus on the life of the party, national issues and France Presidential elections.

The members of NEC who met in an enlarged meeting grouping Mayors, Senators, Shadow cabinet Ministers and National Advisory Council noted with consternation that the Biya regime who has continued to fight with impunity, repression some Anglophones in the two English speaking regions. They wondered why the regime will negotiate and even pay ransom to Boko Haram Militants but was fast to arrest and imprison members of civil society with whom they had negotiated.

NEC members noted that the government has continued to fight undeclared war against the people of two regions with military deployed everywhere intimidating denizens.

Saturdays’ NEC meeting was also an opportunity for the party to put in place a commission of inquiry which will probe into cases of torture, arbitrary arrest and detention in the two English speaking regions.

They frowned at the court case opened against some Bishops in Cameroon arguing that the Mission has done a lot in educating Cameroonians and cannot be brought to court today by so called Consortium of parents.

Away from national life, the SDF was also preoccupied with its internal affairs especially the brouhaha in the Centre region. To this effect, the party used article 18.8 to dismiss all executives and the NEC Committee for the region to take charge while preparing for fresh elections.

The party also announced it will hold National Convention in the month of October.
