Social Democratic Front (SDF) National Chairman, Ni John FruNdi, has lambasted the Biya Government for what he termed gross marginalisation of Anglophones, especially the aborigines of the North West Region in Cameroon’s military.
According to the SDF Chieftain, the population of the North West Region deserves more than one General in the elite force of Cameroon.
He was speaking in Bamenda recently, during the commissioning ceremony of General Agah Robinson into his function.
Fru Ndi saw the elevation of Agah Robinson to the rank of a General as Biya appeasement offering to the population of the North West Region to replace the late General Tumenta, who passed away in tragic circumstances.
“General Agha alone is insignificant because the North West by the strength of its population deserves more than four Generals.
However, if you ask for many and you are given one, take and keep and ask for more because we deserve more than just one General,” Fru Ndi said.
Meanwhile, the Government of Cameroon through the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Defence in charge of the National Gendarmerie, Jean Baptiste Bokam, ordered General Agha Robinson to halt the manufacture of war arms in the North West Regional capital Bamenda.
With the present violent state of affairs in the North West and South West Regions, Government is disturbed that the irate Anglophones may lay hands on locally fabricated fire arms and use them to further resist Government.
The proliferation of locally made weapons in the North West Region has further compounded Government fears.
In his installation address, Bokam said the war against terrorism and other forms of insecurity must be tackled vigorously, as such; no locally manufacture arms should be tolerated in the volatile North West Region.
