Southern Cameroons Journal, Kaduna, Nigeria – The Conclave has risen with a final resolution proscribing the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia United Front SCACUF, and empowering former Chairman of SCACUF Governing Council, Julius AyukTabe to become first President of the Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) Interim Government.

Proceedings which began last Saturday in earnest rather in a contentious manner at the campus of the famous Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria rounded up late Tuesday night October 31, after a review and endorsement of a 29-point resolution that is yet to be signed by the new President.

The conclave empowered President AyukTabe to form an Interim Gov’t comprising of a Vice President, Restoration Parliament, (Council), and an Ethics Commission. The Gov’t, fashioned after a presidential system like in the USA system, shall consist of seven Departments whose heads shall be called Secretaries. The departments shall include Foreign Affairs, Defense, Finance and Economy, Home Affairs, Communications, Education and Social Services.

In the 29-point resolution ending the conclave, members among other things warn the Republic of Cameroun to withdraw its troops from the Southern Cameroons so that refugees can safely return to their homes. They emphasized that unless the troops are completely withdrawn and the security of school kids ensured by such a withdrawal, there will be no


school resumption. It further states that Ghost Towns must continue every Monday and whenever circumstances dictate. The resolutions also call for the immediate and unconditional release of Mancho Bibixy and all other held prisoners in prisons and detention centers across Cameroon

The resolutions equally call upon Southern Cameroonians to step up resistance against any orders from the colonial LRC administration such as resisting any form of taxation and levies. It appeals to traditional authorities in all of Southern Cameroons to henceforth act in the place of a constituted government in rendering and supervising local administration, away from LRC colonial administrators.

Among other things, the conclave terminated SCAPAC’s relationship with the new government suggesting that accusations of financial impropriety involving the former Secretary General and SCAPAC were unfounded, following their own investigations. Milan Atam’s alleged resignation was revoked, making him a potential member of the yet to be announced new gov’t. The Southern Cameroons Broadcasting Corporation SCBC TV, hitherto sponsored partly through SCAPAC, will henceforth operate independently from the new government.

The Conclave and the Interim Gov’t come exactly a month in the wake of the declaration of the restoration of the independence of the former British Southern Cameroons on October 1st this year.

The SDF has called on all its MPs and Senators to return to Parliament and perform the duty assigned to them by the party and the people. This was one of the major resolutions as the party met yesterday, October 28 for the National Executive Committee Conclave in Bamenda. Read the complete declaration

Barrister Agbor Balla's house in Bakwelle burnt the night breaking Sunday October 29. A note left by the arsonists warns him for putting to danger what they have taken till date to struggle for. Thanks to the timely intervention of good Samaritans the fire was put out. His father's grave was also desecrated.

Barrister Balla has been selling like hot cake after his recent outing on BBC calling for effective school resumption and solving the anglophone crisis as one and united Cameroon. He equally accused secessionists as reason why most people are in jail today. His message seemed to not have gone down well with most people especially on social media.

The 48-year-old, known for his lavish tastes, is the son of the oil-rich West African country's president.

He was absent from the trial, where he was found guilty of embezzlement.


His assets in France will be seized, including a mansion on Avenue Foch in Paris. He also got a suspended fine of 30m euros (£27m; $35m).

In November, Swiss prosecutors seized 11 luxury cars belonging to Mr Obiang. They said he had plundered his country's oil wealth to buy luxuries, including a private jet and Michael Jackson memorabilia.

The case against Theodorin was triggered by anti-corruption campaign group Transparency International and a similar NGO, called Sherpa.
Mr Obiang denied the charges, saying his wealth had come from legitimate sources. His lawyers accused France of "meddling in the affairs of a sovereign state", AFP news agency reported.

In 2000-2011 Mr Obiang acquired a collection of luxury assets and properties in France, including the €25m Avenue Foch mansion. He also boasted 18 luxury cars in France, artworks, jewellery and expensive designer fashions, the court found.

It is the first of three French investigations into the alleged "ill-gotten gains" of long-standing African leaders and their families.
The French daily Le Monde reports that the family of Gabon President Ali Bongo has 39 French luxury properties, while 24 are owned by the family of Congo-Brazzaville's President Denis Sassou-Nguesso. They also have about 200 bank accounts, French police say.
