LEAVING THE SUBSTANCE

A certain Mr. James Duddridge MP, said to be the British Minister for Africa, has stated in a letter that
“the UK Government recognizes the outcome of the 1961 plebiscite, organized by the United Nations, in which what are now the modern Anglophone regions voted to join La Republique du Cameroun. The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1608(IV) endorsed the result of the plebiscite and the UK Government respects the territorial integrity of Cameroon.”

CAMEROUN!!!
CAMEROON!!!
ONE OR TWO-IN-ONE???

With due respect, this sounds almost like some nursery school rhymes. Mr. Minister may wish to know that every pupil in infant classes among us knows that there was such plebiscite and such results. Every such infant knows about Resolution 1608(IV) of April 21, 1961. BUT all that is peripheral to the ISSUE OF THE DAY!!!

Reciting those clichés smacks of some cunning claptrap and of unfortunate ruse! The British were once famous worldwide for their high sense of justice and fairness – EQUITY! That explains, in part, the global growth of the Common Law! But there appears to have been a marked departure from those values of recent and in our times.

The CRUX of the matter is whether the terms of JOINING as prescribed by the (IN)FAMOUS Resolution 1608(IV) were complied with!!! Mr. Minister may wish to refresh his memory that the Resolution required that the United Kingdom, La Republique du Cameroun and the Government of Southern Cameroons should meet and state the AGREED POLICIES of JOINING!!!

Granted that there ever was any such meeting, the issue of GREAT MOMENT and IMPORT – the ISSUE OR THE DAY – is the EXISTENCE of an INSTRUMENT that evidenced the AGREED POLICIES of JOINING. We know and we are confident that Mr. Minister knows, (it would be discourteous of us to add OR, AT LEAST, IS PRESUMED TO KNOW), that there NEVER EVER has been any PAROL (oral) international agreement! The instrument that evidenced the agreed policies is the FOUNDATION – the condition sine qua non – that props up anything called TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY!!!

GLOSSING over this MOMENTOUS QUESTION is LEAVING THE SUBSTANCE and CHASING THE SHADOW!

GLOSSING over this ALL-IMPORTANT ISSUE is LOPPING THE BRANCHES instead of FELLING THE TREE!

VERY LIKE ENDORSING OR EVEN ENCOURAGING THE CURRENT GENOCIDE!!!

INCONSISTENT WITH EQUITY AND GOOD CONSCIENCE

INCONSISTENT WITH THE COMMON LAW CORE VALUES

    BRITAIN, france AND THE SWISS ARE NOT INTERESTED IN AMBAZONIA BECOMING AND INDEPENDENT NATION! THEY KNOW OUR STORY BUT CONTINUE TO PRETEND THAT AMBAZONIANS WILL GIVE UP THEIR INDEPENDENCE DECLARED BY THE PRESIDENT, H.E SISSIKU AYUK TABE ON OCTOBER 1, 20017, HENCE THE KILLING OF 22,000 AMBAZONIANS BY BIYA AND HIS FRENCH FORCES.

    The Swiss Want Ambazonians to come to the table as beggars. La republic has continued to kill Ambazonians hoping they drop their arms and surrender! IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

    We have known before now that the Swiss are not objective in getting Southern Cameroon and French Cameroon to the negotiation table as equal partners. They want Southern Cameroon to come to the table as beggars from NOSO and plead their case for another fake federation, not even the kind they had before 1972 that was annulled by French Cameroon. French Cameroon on the other hand is not willing to let go of Ambazonia as it’s their only source of revenue and slaves.

    The Swiss are there to defend their interest in Amba resources and that of French Cameroon. It’s almost twp years since the initiation of Swiss Talks to get the two waring parties together but biya has refused and continue to destroy and kill Ambazonians who they do not consider as equals on the negotiation table. As the Swiss and UN delay and play for time, biya in agreement them, continues to kill, and destroy Ambazonia while pretending to start a reconstruction project. The Swiss even gave the money to fund the BIR recently to kill Ambazonians while pretending it was for Covid l9.

    Just to remind the Swiss, the UN, Britain and France, that there will be no reconstruction in Ambazonia without Negotiating with H.E Sissiku. A third party, the UN, must be on the negotiating table to end the war biya declared and continue to kill more than 22,000 of us in Ambazonia. Biya shall retreat in shame and pay for all the Killing and destruction in Ambazonia. Finally, Ambazonia will retain their international boundaries with french cameroun as they were before 1960. The UN AND THE SWISS should know this: it was French Cameroun that separated themselves from Southern Cameroon after the
    deceptive union of the United Republic of cameroun NOT AMBAZONIANS THAT THEY HAVE LABLED SEPARATISTS IN ORDER TO HUNT THEM DOWN, KILLING AND BLAMING THEM TODAY FOR SEPARATING FROM EAST CAMEROUN while UN and France and Britain stand by and watch THE GENOCIDE.

    Listen to mr British minister effectively saying that what is good for the goose isn’t good for the gander. While Britain is exiting the European Union because it has not worked for them, the same Britain (via its minister) is opposing Southern Cameroons determination to exit the illegal union with French Cameroon because it has been a slave-master relationship for nearly 60 years. Thank God we have taken the destiny of Ambazonia in our hands, Britain or no British opinion. Long live the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.
