Urgent Need For Dialogue- Barrister Felix To AU Political Affairs Commissioner

 

 

 

 

6th High Level Dialogue on Democracy, Human Rights and Governance in Pretoria, South Africa.

My heart goes out to all affected families of the current escalations. I stand with you. These are very trying times to us as a people that is why I decided to use the opportunity to give our people a voice in Pretoria, South Africa upon invitation by the African Union to the 6th High Level Dialogue on Democracy, Human Rights and Governance, on the theme, Enhancing Youth Participation and Representation in Governance in Africa.

With the deteriorating situation at home, I raised concerns about the risk of further escalation of the Anglophone Crisis with the African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs, H.E Mrs. Minata Samate Cessouma.

With Participants in SA

Highlighting the following:

• Gross human rights abuses by the military on civilians, several cases of missing persons since September 22 and October 1, 2017.
• Militarisation of North West and South West Regions, seen as signs of brutal repression, suppression of dissent. This displays intentions of a military solution by the government rather than a peaceful solution through inclusive dialogue on the root cause as recommended by the United Nations.
• Mass exodus of civilians living in fear, causing thousands of refugees, many living in deplorable conditions in Nigeria. We cannot fight against slavery in Libya, when our citizens live and flee the country as slaves!
• Hundreds of youths, women and persons of age in detention facing trumped-up charges.
• Government of Cameroon rejecting dialogue both at the level of civil society and legal representatives of the people in parliament.

We all agreed that dialogue and an urgent solution is required.

Equally of great importance, was a brief discussion with former president of Republic of Ghana, H.E John Dramani Mahama, with whom I raised worries on the crisis, and informed him about growing activism by our majority youthful population who constitute the bedrock of future governance and representation across the region.

Respect of Human Rights, Good Governance and Democracy with participation and representation of youths, remains the only path towards development and creating long term peace throughout Africa.

    Agbor, what was their response to your report??? I understand the AU as a very corrupt organisation. On the other side Ghana might be a good partner for the Federation of Ambazonia in the future.

    The government of LRC has NEVER had a genuine dialogue with any of its “citizens” without them imposing what they want,how they want it,and they believe no other person has to have an opinion.
    The AU and other groups of persons should have learned from history that genuine dialogue has NEVER served LRC . All LRC knows is the use if force, rape, killing, looting, unimaginable levels of human right abuse. A dictator doesn’t dialogue, he dictates.

    Barrister Nkongho, I hope by now you must be out of that federalist camp. If a cpdm senator can see us as property to be exploited then I begin to wonder how on earth someone can think in their right mind that we can cohabit with these type of people. The damage done by the french leeches to many in LRC is too much for use to be concern with.
    Please promote the ideals of Ambaland for you are too knowledgeable to be part of this demonic experiment from LRC, for we know that if they will not get you to do their dirty games, they will do every thing to eliminate you.

    Agbor Balla is insignificant. Once bought and in hell, there forever!

    No, no, no. The language is:

    They kill us, we kill them,
    They escalate things, we escalate things,

    Equal and opposite forces neutralizes each other, no begging of fake institutions.
