THE IG AND THE APNC: THE FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN OR JUST A SHOW OF POWER?
Anyone who listened to Chris Anu yesterday certainly left that show with many unanswered questions. While he attempted to rival why the IG does not stand for the holding of the APNC, pundits still hold that the IG has a thing or two they are not bringing out to the public.
In a meeting with the AIP, Dr Sako, he told activists that they were notified late for the conference. Something Chris echoed with a loud voice. He justified their position with a lot of zeal and even gave figures albeit many errors of country heads who have rejected the holding of the conference.
Yes the calls have been in their multitudes for a reorganization of the IG. The question that begs for answer from the organizers of this conference is if they are using this as a springboard to hold their conference or they have other motivations we do not know? While this question and more are still lurking around, it may interest Ambazonians to also be told if this is not a constitutional coup to dethrone the current leadership of the IG. Is Sako and Chris afraid to be unseated? Are they trying to show legitimacy and the force of a government over its citizens? Or simply put are we in a voice race where he who holds the mike is heard loudest?
Be that as it may, discussions are still going on ferociously for the APNC conference to hold. If you ask my opinion on this topic, I will tell you both parties need to talk some more on the background. The fear I have is what if the conference proposes very good points and strategies that may take us ahead, do we just discard them because the IG has rejected its holding? In that case why are we ready to spend millions on a conference that its resolution will not be implemented.
Now the question the IG needs to answer is why will they refuse known and genuine Ambazonians the opportunity to meet and talk about the struggle? Are they seeing this a coup and are afraid it may sweep them like the case in some African countries?
The IG needs to have a listening ear and above all learn to listen to every voice. We are at a cross road and we never know where the penalty will come from. Like I said, it is not time to show who is stronger or weaker, it is time to show how collaborative we can be to dismiss the elephant in the house. Nyamjoh and Konnings had warned that unless the Anglophone leadership comes together, talk and listen to each other, the fight for a free homeland maybe more fierce than we think.
