Nord-Ouest: les fons disent non à la sécession

Cameroon Tribune | C’était dimanche dernier à Bamenda en présence du ministre de l’Administration territoriale, Paul Atanga Nji.

La prise de position des chefs traditionnels du Nord-Ouest qui ont réaffirmé l’indivisibilité du Cameroun ainsi que leur soutien aux institutions de la République et aux personnes qui les incarnent est sans équivoque. Venus de tous les départements de la région, ils ont dit à l’unisson non aux sécessionnistes dimanche après-midi dans la salle de conférence de l’hôtel Ayaba à Bamenda, au cours d’une réunion avec Paul Atanga Nji, le ministre de l’Administration territoriale (MINAT).

Les gardiens de la tradition qui ont pris la parole à cette occasion ont dit combien ils sont reconnaissants au chef de l’Etat pour avoir nommé un de leur digne fils à ce poste stratégique lors du remaniement ministériel du 2 mars 2018. Pour eux, Paul Atanga Nji est un « homme d’action ». C’est « l’homme qu’il faut à la place qu’il faut » dans le contexte actuel.

Le MINAT a saisi l’occasion de cette rencontre pour dénoncer les comportements de ceux qui insultent ou molestent les fons, auxiliaires de l’administration et dépositaires du pouvoir ancestral. Raison pour laquelle, selon le MINAT, ils doivent être respectés parce que leur autorité est sacrée. Il s’est engagé à punir quiconque portera désormais atteinte à l’honorabilité des chefs traditionnels dans la région du Nord-Ouest.

En leur remettant l’arbre de la paix, Paul Atanga Nji leur a demandé d’être les messagers de la paix en collaborant étroitement avec les pouvoirs publics « car ceux qui tuent, violent, brûlent, détruisent, ne vivent pas au ciel. Ils sont parmi nous et il faut les dénoncer ». Le MINAT a également donné 30 jours aux jeunes armés pour qu’ils se rendent.

Après les chefs traditionnels, le MINAT a eu des échanges très fructueux avec les dirigeants des syndicats des conducteurs de motos-taxis. On sait que les conducteurs de ces engins à deux roues sont impliqués dans près d’une centaine d’atrocités qui ont été enregistrées. Les syndicalistes présents se sont engagés à travailler plus que jamais pour dénoncer et éloigner de leur profession les fauteurs de troubles.

Le MINAT, qui leur remis à titre symbolique des casques et des chasubles, leur a accordé 90 jours pour se conformer à la réglementation en vigueur concernant l’activité des motos-taxis.

Derniers à être reçus, les syndicats des enseignants, les présidents des associations des parents d’élèves et les opérateurs économiques ont exprimé leur volonté d’œuvrer pour que la paix revienne rapidement dans la région. Les enseignants ont demandé aux parents encore réticents en zone rurale d’envoyer leurs enfants à l’école.

Ils ont demandé au MINIAT d’intervenir auprès de ses collègues du gouvernement pour que les arriérés des frais de correction des examens soient payés, car ont-ils déclaré, certains parmi eux, notamment du secteur privé, cumulent parfois jusqu’à une dizaine de mois d’arriérés de salaires.

Les opérateurs économiques, quant à eux, avaient pratiquement les larmes aux eux, en expliquant comment les villes mortes et le couvre-feu font péricliter leurs affaires. Alors qu’ils doivent faire face aux échéances des prêts contractés à la banque et à leurs obligations fiscales. Ils ont prié le ministre de voir dans quelle mesure faire lever le couvre-feu qui pénalise bon nombre d’hommes d’affaires, comme les transporteurs et les propriétaires des boites de nuit qui accumulent des manque -à -gagner.

  1. These so-called traditional rulers have been used by the Etoudi Junta to stifle the liberation struggle of their own people as championed by their youths.
    Most, if not all, of these so-called traditional rulers have shamelessly mortgaged their consciences to the Etoudi oligarchy by accepting membership of the CPDM crime syndicate. Most of them have now become members of Biya’s election rigging syndicate.
    These so-called traditional rulers have refused to positively team up with their subjects for the improvement of the lot of Southern Cameroons and of their people, They prefer rather to stand in the way of their subjects by actively thwarting the latter’s efforts in exchange for a few marginal and ephemeral favours from LRC.

    • No wonder Colonial administrators from LRC do not have any respect for Southern Cameroonian CHIEFS and FONS. These so-called traditional rulers have themselves to blame for their predicaments. They have sold their consciences to LRC in exchange for a few marginal and ephemeral favours.
      These so-called Custodians of the traditions of their ancestors were not even ashamed to desecrate the same traditions in order to please the Dictator in Etoudi.
      The NW Fons shamelessly awarded the brutal Dictator, Paul Biya, the title of FON OF FONS.

      Very few Southern Cameroonians listen to the so-called FONS. They are part of the problem not the solution.
      EX-CONVICT AtangaNA can bribe them to say anything to please Biya.

      THE PEOPLES REVOLUTION IS UNSTOPPABLE.

      • @MVOMEKA
        BADLUCK PEKIN . You disobey your traditional rulers , your revolution will not bring you no where . than to spend your time on the media talking nonsense better go back home and help your brother so you too will be crush and peace and life will continu.

      • The Chiefs in the good old days of West Cameroon were people of high repute. They were respected by their subjects because they were apolitical. The House of Chiefs was created therefore to advisory instance of the other branches of the state of West Cameroon. The House of Chiefs was constitutionally NOT a partisan institution.
        Then came LRC. The Chiefs and Fons have been transformed into “Nchindas” of Biya. They spend their time writing and shouting motions of support, thanks, immortality, wishes, congratulations and prayers to Biya.
        Like subjects in kingdoms like Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Lesotho and many others, these so-called Fons and Chiefs always wish that their so-called FON of FONS lives and outlives the oldest person that ever lived.

        • They even send Biya motions of immortality. They wish that Biya should live forever. He should be like the Almighty God.

          How in God’s name could the so-called custodians of the tradition of the people of the North West receive orders and ultimatums from an EX-CONVICT, MURDERER and secondary school dropout?????

          That is indeed the inexplicable paradox that beats my imagination.

        • **** My advice to Dictator Biya and Ex-convict AtangaNA ****

          Stop wasting taxpayers money bribing these so-called custodians of the customs and traditions.
          Few Southern Cameroonians listen to them. They can therefore NOT help stop the present momentum.

          As a reminder, last year the chiefs of the South West even went further. They told the visiting Commonwealth SG that they were:
          1. against secession ( the right word is SEPARATION )
          2. against a FEDERATION

          AND GUESS WHAT????

          The utterances of the so-called chiefs fell on deaf ears.
          The momentum has intensified.
          The bribe given to the chiefs was a sheer waste of scarce resources.

          This revolution belongs to the people and can only be stopped by the people.
          Arresting Ayuk Tabe, Ayaba et al. will not stop the momentum.

        • What wrong with Paul Biya be considerer as a chief ? did you see any problem with Morocco , Saoudi Arabia, and others like you mentioned ?
          Who teach you Democracy ? if not Europe and Others ? stop saying Paul Biya all the time . if i check you back home you did not even have a chicken call yours. what you know is Paul biya must go. than to be asking the government to change or adopt one or few things to better the life of poor Cameroonian. if not been here proposing the action to take to make our institution to change.
          IS BEEN MORE THAN 10 YEARS PAUL BIYA MUST GO. IF HE STILL THERE LES’T CHANGE THE STRATEGY AND FOCUS TO THING WE WANT HIM TO DO TO BETTER OUR LIFE.

  2. This is not the first time we are hearing that from a few sellouts,and i guess it wouldn’t be the last.
    Let any fon speak for himself,but if anyone among them is deemed a traitor to our course,we will not hesitate to clean house the south African way.
    Our brothers from the NW are up to the task and know how to take care of those fons that collaborate with lrc thugs to terrorize our people.

  3. Gone are the days when the people will listen to their traditional rulers..When the traditional rulers defended the interest of its people and could do some village developments..Today the rulers are just like the thieves from Yoaunde.They think only of their stomach and have been corrupt by the Gangsters from yaounde..
    I am happy to say that the people dont even listen to them anymore..
    I am proud to say that cameroon is taking a very important turning point in its young history..I am also very proud and happy to see that the days are gone when a so call hand full of big people came from yaounde to full the people with drinks and food.
    I am very proud to say that Cameroonians from the NWP and SWP now understand what it means to take part in nation building. remain strong freedom fighters.

  4. yeah yeah yeah stupidity always insist insist and insist….only your opinion matters yeah? terrorists!

  5. The fons are all politicians of West Cameroon,made in East Cameroon…But i am sorry to burst their bubbles.The blue and white flag that i saw people carrying during the 22nd of sept manifestation signifies Ambasonia.Not some kind of federalism or decentralisation with LRC.
    So,this insignificant minority politicians, made in Yaounde cannot help LRC..Let LRC try something else.

    • And where is that diaper [email protected] kongossa??

      • Certainly not in the dustbin where the peace plants carried by the traitor fins belong.
        Do you remember that in September and October 2017 Anglophones marched in the multitudes with the same peace plants? Why were they massacred and slaughtered like chickens but the fins are not killed?
        So the problem is not with the peace plant but rather the people holding it nobi so?
        Well we he small people have decided. Organise the referendum, we will obey the Fons and vote as they have ordered us to.
        Bring the referendum quick

        • Epée,

          say what is inside your mind concerning the fons from NW take—say it to others tho—I know.

          Waiting on the comment of my Bojongo friend, the Mola Omar…

        • You amuse me haven’t I said what you wanted to hear supra?
          Or will you not have us obey the Fons?
          Let the referendum come quickly.

    • Kongosa,

      I didn’t hear you suggest to Cho to take care of the fons.

      Your crazy fighters would soon be discovering what it means to be a maquizard, as fons would soon pass order for them to be denounced to BIR each time they’ll attempt to run away awhile from forest life.

      They would have to stay henceforth in that forest hideout for a very-very long time…

  6. shameful Southern Cameroons colonial free loader fons and chief who only thinking of their status, power to bully the people about useless witch crafts, they are lazy slaves beggars who rely on lrc bribes for 57 years to feed themselves,they see their people as personal properties,kept in primitiveness, is there any single county or village in the entire English regions with descent living conditions in the 21st century? people are still living like cave people with dusty, pothole roads, dirty smelly villages with rotten houses, no electricity, no drinkable water, no decent jobs, industries, for their youth population yet they do nothing as heads of the communities, the youths must disown these devils who have no care, compassion and vision for their people and regions,they are lrc agents

    • What are you fellows weeping about? Accept the fact that the majority are staunchly against your insanity and move on…

      • You need a psychologist. 3 and half Fons are majority?
        Only in larepublique

      • do you think i can stand infront of the govt and say i support ambazonia,only a mad man will do this,people are in jail just because they mentioned the word federation,why will the fons infront of atanga nji carrying backs of money say they support ambazonia? tell me why,is it really true you di smoke abanga?dont make me believe what guys say about u here.

  7. Nothing substantial can be written by a Colonial newspaper CameroUn Tribune

  8. Respect is a two-way traffic between a people and their traditional ruler. Once a third party enters the scene, things begin to shake and the people watch how power display plays out. For a while people stick with their chief and their tradition. But as the third party (DO,) and chief begin to kowtow to the Administration and even outdo each other in genuflecting, the survival instinct of the people sets in.

    Today the ordinary citizen has to choose the lesser of two evils(the two genuflecting rivals).

    • @JD, remember, that where you are, there is nothing like chieftaincy or chief.
      Others are in the new testament days and such set backs, have no place.
      Look at K- Town for example. The natives have finally, been pushed to settle
      between the station hills. Much of the good level land, is now in the hands of
      strangers and when CDC will decide to give back some land, natives will have
      nothing to gain. Does K- Town, have a chief, JD? This thing, is immaterial. It
      is old fashioned and should be compared, to witchcraft and banned. What is there,
      that the chiefs can show, as proof that their positions have improved on the lives
      of their peoples? Only a conquered and brainwashed folks can continue in this
      blindness.

  9. Who cares about what this beggars have to say ? All them are payroll in Yaounde their subjects are suffering! They travel to diaspora to go begging from some of their people that running from poverty and misery that they are Paul Biya created. Toothless bulldogs without power or armor!

  10. What wrong with Paul Biya be considerer as a chief ? did you see any problem with Morocco , Saoudi Arabia, and others like you mentioned ?
    Who teach you Democracy ? if not Europe and Others ? stop saying Paul Biya all the time . if i check you back home you did not even have a chicken call yours. what you know is Paul biya must go. than to be asking the government to change or adopt one or few things to better the life of poor Cameroonian. if not been here proposing the action to take to make our institution to change.
    IS BEEN MORE THAN 10 YEARS PAUL BIYA MUST GO. IF HE STILL THERE LES’T CHANGE THE STRATEGY AND FOCUS TO THING WE WANT HIM TO DO TO BETTER OUR LIFE.

  11. So these fons have seen no reason so far to come out and condemn the excesses of Biya’s military on civilians in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon?

  12. @Zam-Zam Of course,some fons and chiefs have already been taken care of.Don’t u know of some fons and chiefs that were sent to their early graves by the tigers and ADF? Ambasonians world wide,spoke on the 22nd of Sept 2018 with their blue and white flag.Ambasonians are in solidarity with the actions of Ayaba Cho’s ADF to dfend home land.Any Fon,Chief,parliamentarian or Senator that would defies the Ambasonian law will pay dearly for it.U just saw how our dear Prof Leke Tambo was collected like a termite and his family had to beg for his release.That is just to serve as a warning to all who will defy the Ambasonian law.We have seen some have compiled list,to go and represent the Ambasonian people in Cavaye Yeguies’ parliament,just watch and see what will happen in the days ahead.

    • Kongosa,

      that chief u’re talking abt was a mere chef de quartier. Try that ur madness with fons, and u’ll soon discover that Khaki is no leather. Besides, if u think this stuff is going to be fought only in CMR u better wake up, bros.

      That system all intelligent sons and daughters of CMR were begging u 2 concentrate ur energies and join forces 2 break its neck, is 1 million times murderous than Cho and his likes. Just wait and c. I know our secret service very well, they’ll take that fight 2 u guys hiding in the West. And they’ll use ur own mov’t guys 2 deal with u. Be it in USA, EU, SA…

      The difference bw u guys and the system is simply that they have got the money. Forchive used to say: “nous avons les moyens et la volonté”.

      No need changing ur Facebook profile!

      Wait and c…

    • Ohhhhh we are afraid to die!
      They should kill everybody I have told you worms and dust will rise and fight.
      We will die fighting for our freedom and will not be second class to any man who walks this earth.
      Certainly not du -mb fellows like Larepublique with nothing to show for years of education

  13. @Zam Zam. I understand that maquisards like u think Ambasonians can also lost a war against France like u did…But,sorry to dissapoint u,your leaders in those days did not have the support of the massees,which Ayaba Cho have.Who are fons? their subjects alone can take care of them.

  14. @Zam Zam..Ayaba Cho can do anything he want to do with the insignificant minority traitors like those chiefs,Fons,Senators and parliamentarians.We have given our blessings.

  15. The fons and chiefs, are no custodians. Did Ama Tutu Muna not carry away artifacts from
    the NW and nothing has been done to this day? Those are lrc employees who are the spies
    to help divide the people so a few can come and lord over them.
    One thing is certain, that is, they are the last fight. They are not significant now. When their
    turn comes, it would be like throwing some grains of corn in a room and the harvest is done.
    Who ever knew, that a quiet people will be so so organized today?

    • O yea, the Fons and chiefs are no custodians, you chant… but the rasclaaat queen of England is your most significant custodian! You are ashamed of your ancestral heritage as you continue chasing shadows. Man, it is not incumbent upon the African society to raise your self-esteem.

  16. @Ras Tuge No,the Fons and chiefs are not custodians,but Emmanuel Macron.Imperialism have eaten deep into your marrows. Quit our land lets decide what to do with our land.Is it too much to ask? If we care,we can use Spanish or Yoruba as national language,that should not be your concern.All i know is that we don’t want French,as proposed by the chiefs and fons

    • I am with you papa.
      And they panic because they know they cannot win.
      On a coupé la tête du serpent avec l’arrestation de Ayuk Tabe.
      Well Le serpent avait 100 têtes, une méduse n’est ce pas?
