Senior Journalist, John Mbah Akuroh has hit back at the Confederation of Anglophone Journalist Associations created by the Publisher of the Watchdog tabloid, Dotta Ezekiel for spearheading a movement which undermines the stance of a majority of Anglophone Journalists in the ongoing struggle to preserve and consolidate the Anglo saxon judicial, educational, and cultural heritage.
In his outburst, the fire brand media personality who works for the state media CRTV and manages the Times Journal has rubbished the move of Dotta by giving a strong backing to the lawyers and teachers; Insisting that the opinion of the Confederation does not reflect the general views of all Anglophone journalists.
"A group of hungry so-called journalists grouped under a yet-to-be known Confederation of Anglophone Journalism associations was caught sharing money at Ayaba Hotel in Bamenda this day to whomever wanted to collect so they could go and sell their message that students must return to school on Monday the 9th of January, 2017.
The said traitors, led by one Dotta Ezekiel who runs The Watchdog newspaper, specialized in dishing out awards to gullible politicians, posed as representing all Anglophone journalists in Cameroon.
In my capacity as President of the Cameroon Anglophone Publishers' Association, CANPA and Secretary General of the Commonwealth Journalists Association - CJA- Cameroon, hereby assert that we support the strikes and stand by the demands made, while insisting we back the calls for schools shutdown and ghost town until the demands presented are met."
