The Acting President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, H.E Dr. Sako Samuel Ikome, has sent out a national invitation to all Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians and key Leaders of Liberation Groups, for an “All Ambazonia Consultative Council (AACC)” scheduled for August 18th and 19th, 2018

- Leader of MORISC, Mr. Boh Herbert

- Leader of Catholic Episcopal Community, Cardinal Christian Tumi
- Leader of Human Rights Community: Barrister Agbor Balla
- Leader of Ambazonia Pastor’s Network: Pastor Victor Mbah
The Acting President further states in the invitation that; the AACC telecast is an open event and is subject to Registration, which is currently going on in the website: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/all–southerncameroonsambazoniaconsultative–council–tickets–48501235501?ref=estw
The invitation for the consultative assembly is coming after a group of Southern Cameroons religious leaders led by the retired Christian Cardinal Tumi, the Synod Clerk of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroun and leaders of the Ambazonian Muslim community, met in the economic capital of the colonial master La Republic du Cameroun (LRC) two days ago, and convened what they called the Anglophone General Conference (AGC). According to the clergy men, the Conference which is scheduled for 29th and 30th August 2018 is to discuss the issues at stake in the ongoing war with colonial Yaounde, and prepare a team for a possible dialogue in relation to the conflict.
The said conference has however received a lot of backlash from Southern Cameroonians/ Ambazonians, for the following reasons: It is being organized in Buea, the capital of Ambazonia, by a die heart Federalist Dr. Simon Munzu who doesn’t believe in a free Ambazonia. This means that all restoration leaders will not be able to attend because of the determination of the colonial dictator to assassinate all Ambazonian frontline leaders.
The conference is expected to take place in Buea on the 29th and 30th of August, 2018, one month to the colonial Presidential elections which the colonial president Paul Biya desperate want to organized in Ambazonia and consolidate his colonial kingship in both territories of the Cameroons. Ambazonians therefore see the said conference in Buea as a leeway for Mr. Biya to come in and organized the sham elections to enthrone himself again as the slave master over Ambazonia once.
The wisdom of the Interim Government to schedule the Consultative Council meeting before the AGC in Buea and its decision to make it inclusive by inviting all the representatives of Ambazonias whether Federalists or restorationists, is worth praising. It is evident that majority of Ambazonians want to recover their lost country from the colonial master. The consultative meeting in the USA will therefore be an opportunity to make the stand of majority of Ambazonians across the globe known concerning the AGC of August 29th and 30th in Buea.
Ambazonians had long waited for such a meeting of all liberation leaders, which had not been forth coming due to disagreements and dichotomy in revolutionary opinions by the different revolutionary leaders and groups. The summoning of the AGC by the religious leaders two days a go has therefore acted as an advantage to the revolution as it will now bring all the leaders together, to chat a common course for the revolutionary journey. After all, everybody all this while has been heading to Buea, though in different revolutionary trains and captains.
It is therefore time to use one train and a captain at a time, supported by able assistants, in order to avoid delays, traffic and confusion on the way to freedom.
