The gate way to revolutionise our culture, the government and power. The dawn of the new Cameroon.
Thank you. Today, true citizens of Cameroon have spoken – and spoken decisively. So let me speak decisively in return.
You had a choice between three ideologies with little to recommend them save an unwillingness to sell their fundaments in return for power, and in your quest for an alternative to the current system of governance I am humbled by the honour you have bestowed.
I’m going to take a moment later and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we’ve made here. what I care about most is the history Cameroon has yet to write. Our children and grandchildren will look back at this time, at the choices we are about to make, the goals we will strive for, the principles we will live by. And we need to make sure that they can be proud of us.
Thanks to you, we’ve for 56yrs reached a milestone – the first time in our nation’s history that we can speak out against wrong doing, challenge assumptions and seek a better informed pathway for all with pragmatic evidence to justify our differences.
Today’s victory is not about one person. It belongs to generations of Cameroonians who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible under Ambazonia challenging propaganda influence.
The Ambazonia ideology started out of opportunistic ventures When a small but determined group of youths, women, and men, explored a lope hole created by teachers and lawyers ventures into practical and judicial differences in Cameroon. A genuine outcry naïve exploited and analysis to the understanding of the mass.
Although must of these problems is beyond the scope of the ordinary man’s understanding,the coin speaks for itself it was the first time in human history that that kind of declaration occurred. We are suffering from the effects of a war that had nothing to do with us and the differences between Foncha, Dr Enderley and the Formal President that failed to truly reflect our status at the time. This should not make us different nor should we use it to spread differences where none truly exist.
So we all owe so much to those who came before, and this day this year belongs to all of you.
I want to thank all the volunteers, community leaders, the activists, and organizers who supported our campaign in every Part of the world against ideologies that create divisions and hatred or proclaims our innocence where we are not. We pay special tribute to those who have paid the ultimate price in an attempt to revolutionise the government and power and we ensure your hard work will be remembered in years to come.
I want to thank all the people across our country who have taken the time to talk with me. I’ve learned a lot about you and I’ve learned about those persistent problems and the unfinished promise of the current government that you are living with. So many of you feel like you are out there on your own, that no one has your back. Well, I do. I hear you, I see you.
And as your voice for a better alternative , I will always have your back. I want to congratulate Open minded Francaphones, a special tribute to la piro, ateba Eyeni etc for the extraordinary campaign. They spent their long career in public service fighting and paid the ultimate price as advocates of peaceful coexistence in a heterogeneous society.
And let there be no mistake: The pragmatic campaign against Ambazonia and the vigorous debate Is all about how to amend the problems highlighted above and how to
raise incomes, reduce inequality, increase upward mobility Which should be above all good for Cameroon.
This has been a hard-fought, deeply-felt campaign. But whether you supported the liberal or Ambazonia or the current government, we all need to keep working toward a better, fairer, stronger Cameroon henceforth.
Now, I know it never feels good to put your heart into a cause or a candidate you believe in – and to come up short. I know that feeling well. But as we look ahead to the battle that awaits, let’s remember all that unites us.
We all want an economy with more opportunity and less inequality, where does in position of power can never wreck the life/lives of the mass in the manner we currently experience. We all want a government that listens to the people, not the power brokers, which means getting unaccountable money out of politics. And we all want a society that is tolerant, inclusive, and fair.
We all believe that Cameroon succeeds when more people share in our prosperity; when more people have a voice in our political system; when more people can contribute to their communities. We believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. That has been the biggest strength of any nation today that Ambazonia has failed to exploit as a 21st Century alternative.
It’s a pragmatic simple but powerful idea. We believe that we are stronger together. And the stakes in this struggle are high. And the choice is clear. Peaceful coexistence the mother of our success in a multicultural, multi-ethnic colourful country. The only country in the world where Islam and Christianity share a common space without fear. What a gift from God!
When anglophones speaks of on the behalf of English speaking student receiving lectures in French, they are right but when Ambazonia politicise the act, they are short of reality in Land the right punch to the government. Why are Anglophones teachers not teaching French speakers according to our understanding of bilingual country?
When Anglophones lawyers complained of civil law in Anglophones courts when the English system warrant common law, they are right. When Ambazonia politicise the move they are short of the reality. The facts are in the practice not the law and I questioned why arrest made in bamenda is transferred but to Yaoundé? It is by reality we need the civil law in Anglophones court.
When the people complain of jobs and discrimination at the point of deliverance, they are right but when Ambazonia politicise the move they are short of wiseness. Bamenda should have a large depot for brewery to supply it large geographical area. Fact
When Ambazonia called people LRP it is mere a smere campaign for who are the soldiers who have paid the Ultimate price? When Ambazonia preach self determination, it is right an just only that it fails to address it within it own constitutional legal documents the pathway to self determination for all.
When Ambazonia leaders sacrifice innocent children education, their children are happy schooling abroad and it failed to justify it actions or show rumours for affected families whose children might never see further education again.
When Ambazonia preach peace loving people and pure status, they are right only that schools have been burnt by aliens. The list goes on.
Ambazonia has been temperamentally unfit to be that alternative many Cameroonians today seek for. And it is not just trying to build a wall between Those who had 2 decades of English education and those who had 2 decades of French education Ambazonia is trying to wall off Cameroonians from each other when we should be dishing the French and English divide and rule exploitation system from our genes.
When Ambazonia says, ‘Let’s make Amba land pure that is code for Let’s take You backwards to the primitive age of sardine= to your gold and silver.
Back to a time when opportunity and dignity were reserved for some, not all, promising innocent supporters an economy they cannot create or sustain in today’s world without enslavement of people like you.
We, however, we want to write the next chapter in the making of Cameroon, with a 21st century prosperity that lifts everyone who’s been left out and left behind, including those who may support our ideology but who deserve their chance to make a new beginning and a better life
When current Cameroon government keeps breaking it own promises and postponing agendas, we expect Ambazonia the présumé better alternative to deliver pragmatic reality. To date what have you learned and seen? The same but worse propaganda full of hoax and eccentric ideas distorting reality and our imagination of reality.
When Ambazonia says a distinguished Anglophone lawyers can’t do their job in bamenda because of Civil law or the mocks the UN as toothless bulldogs or calls Mr PM yam or starts teachers teaching nine speakers of French in French, it goes against everything we stand for. Civil law is the backbone of almost all judicial systems around the world. However, there is a point that is very important in the practice but Ambazonia has so far failed to address fundamental problems associated with such and act of stupidity by the current government. Raising revenues and Creating jobs for yourselves is a prime example of your ideological world of exploitation of the very people you intended to help bringing you equal to the regime you are condemning. You are a good example of your own critics. Amba= regime = missing plugs
Because we want a Cameroon where everyone is treated with respect and where their work is valued whether or not it is in contrary to our views
It’s clear that Ambazonia doesn’t believe we are stronger together. They have rightly condemned Cameroon but with no pragmatic alternatives instead
abused and block any primary critic intended for better judgement.
They wants to win minds and souls by stoking fear and rubbing salt in wounds. And reminding us daily of just how great Ambazonia will be.
Well, we believe we should lift each other up, not tear each other down. We believe we need to give Cameroonians a raise – not complain that hardworking people’s wages are too low without defining the hard work and addressing inflation l. We believe we need to help young people struggling with the current poor orientation to ensure their education and chosen careers are fit for purpose. We believe we all are lazy and corrupt not just a francaphone.
To be a better nation we can’t be narrow minded. You have to be as big as the values that define your ambition and to expect success from our own initiatives.Be self reliant to relying on the state.
No system no government will address your personal problems except yourselves. Systems are not pc codes run by aliens and each system has it flaws. The System has o problem with Cameroon but Cameroonians have a problem with the system and themselves.
We are a big-hearted, fair-minded country. We teach our children that this is one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Not just for people who look a certain way or worship a certain way or love a certain way. For all. Indivisible.Division should be preach were it is clearly shown to counter preach further divisions within the same framework. Ambazonia failed to fully understand the consequences of such pathways with a narrow view of English as a token of unity when divisions exist within families and no two tribes are the same.
This struggle is not, however, about the same old fights between CPDM, SDF, SCNC. This struggle is different. It really is about who we are as a nation. It’s about millions of Cameroonians coming together to say: We are better than this. We won’t let this happen in Cameroon.
And if you agree – whether you’re a CPDM , SDF, scnc or independent – I hope you’ll join us.
Our campaign will take this message to every corner of our country. We’re stronger when our economy works for everyone, not just those at the top, with good-paying jobs and good schools in every corner of the globe or hold positions of power to exploit the ordinary mass but a real commitment to all families and all regions of our country.
We’re stronger when we work with our allies around the world to keep us safe. And we are stronger when we respect each other, listen to each other, and act with a sense of common purpose.
We’re stronger when every family in every community knows they’re not on their own, because we are in this together. It really does ‘take a village’ to raise a child – and to build a stronger future for us all.
I learned this a long time ago, from the biggest influence in my life: my mother. She was my rock, from the day I was born till the day she left us. She overcame a childhood marked by abandonment and mistreatment, and somehow managed not to become bitter or broken. My mother believed that life is about serving others. And she taught me never to back down from a bully, which, it turns out, was pretty good advice.
So yes, yes, there are still ceilings to break – for women and men, for all of us. But don’t let anyone tell you that great things can’t happen in America. Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win. Our history has moved in that direction – slowly at times, but unmistakably – thanks to generations of Americans who refused to give up or back down.
Now you are writing a new chapter of that story. This campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings – no limits – on any of us. And this is our moment to come together.
So please, join our campaign. The only campaign that accept wrong doing in us and offer a chance for reconciliation and reconstruction for all allowing room for peace. As an immediate course of action, and end to ghost town and all children are free from today to return to school. We do not hold ourselves hostage or sacrifice our children on any framework. We called on all schools to open their gate and any remnants of Ambazonia ideology should accept the unconditional surrender of your ideology. We want a positive change but with accountability and responsibilities from grass roots. We called on the Cameroon government to assume and take it responsibilities and act accordingly in respect of it reciprocal actions. We are Cameroonians seeking a better nation for all including your own children.
