Honourable Jean Nintcheu
Honourable Nintcheu Jean Michel of the Social democratic front (sdf) has informed President Biya that” Cameroonians are ,If he is physically unable to run the country let him Resign
The SDF honourable member of parliament for the Litoral region made the statement while calling for an urgent parliamentary INQUIRY into the Eseka train derailment which according to reports killed some close to 200 people and thousands injured while traveling from Yaounde to Douala Friday, October 20th, 2016.
In his release published in french,the SDF Deputy Nintcheu Jean-Michel extended his condolences to the families of the bereaved and wished a speedy recovery to the victims and survivors who are obviously still in shock.
Hon. Nintcheu Jean-Michel wrote, “Cameroon has once again, faced a real tragedy: dozens of compatriots have passed from life to death following a train derailment at Eseka. Beyond the emotion and bitterness within me, it is important to investigate the root causes of Friday’s tragedy.
These casualties are a result of the broken bridge on the National No. 3 at Matomb which led the camrail company to increase rail passenger traffic on the Douala-Yaounde line . It is obviously the responsibilities of both the government of Mr. Biya and Camrail company.
Regarding the Camrail company which has not even issued any condolences to the victims, they have a commitment to responsibility.
Despite the argument that camrail was forced by the government to increase passenger traffic, the company which transports goods to the detriment of passenger transport, should have assessed the security risks associated with this government ORDER.
Nothing is worth a human life. From the moment when suspicions weigh on domestic logistics business and the quality of rail infrastructure, the State of Cameroon has an absolute duty to disclose transparently the terms contained in the privatization of the national Board of railways which was once a national pride.
Regarding the responsibility of the government of Mr. Biya, the broken bridge did not brutally cut off that morning but a gradual erosion had been going on for some time. We have a government that reacts rather than act.
It is, therefore, the place to question the role of the Directorate of Civil Protection, in the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralization.
As part of the Public Investment Budget for 2016 the Ministry of Public Works, the state has allocated FCFA 83,838,155,000 for the “maintenance of roads and other infrastructure, with the aim of improving infrastructures on the national territory.
In this maintenance program,is a planned rehabilitation of the Yaoundé-Douala road totaling 600 million but nothing seems happening
Biya must go, the SDF MP reiterated.
