The U.S. government on Wednesday commented on the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Cameroon

Washington like the United Nations and United Kingdom called for restraint and dialogue to be employed by both parties in a press statement issued on October 4, 2017.

The statement issued by the State Department spokesperson, Heather Nauert, whiles expressing concern about the situation said Washington found the use of force in handling protesters grievances as ‘unacceptable.’

The Cameroonian government’s use of force to restrict free expression and peaceful assembly, and violence by protestors, are unacceptable.

The full statement read as follows:

“The United States is deeply concerned about violence and the loss of human life in protests that have taken place in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon since October 1. The Cameroonian government’s use of force to restrict free expression and peaceful assembly, and violence by protestors, are unacceptable.

Heather Nauert
“We urge the Government of Cameroon to respect human rights and freedom of expression, including access to the internet. We call on all sides to exercise restraint from further violence, and engage in dialogue for a peaceful, durable resolution.

The embassy in Yaounde has since late September issued a series of security messages warning citizens of unrest in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions. They cautioned citizens to defer all but essential travel to the North West and South West regions.

They cited running battles between security forces and protesters demanding independence from the Central African country. The regions which have long complained of marginalization on October 1 intended to declare its freedom under the name, Ambazonia republic.

A heavy security deployment to the area clashed with protesters leading to deaths. The official toll was put at eight even though Amnesty International put it at 17 and the main opposition said 30 people had died. Dozens were injured whiles hundreds were detained by authorities.

  1. Look after your shooting and killing…solve your own problem…stop going around creating trouble into other peoples life bringing them back 50 years like you doing in Libya etc…just to make yourself superior.

    Every time a society want to make progress you come along and destroy it and bring them back 50 years while you are doing slow progress in your own society and portrait yourself as smarter than all…you are not smarter..if given same starting point I am sure your society will be bottom. Devil!

    • Young man, it may interest you to know that the priest who stands at the pulpit to preach to a congregation is not without his shortcomings.(All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God). Yet someone must preach the word to God’s people!

      Understandable to play the Cameroonian (blame) game. But look for a better setting. Remember that the day the US went after Saddam Hussein, voices were raised in Cameroon calling on the US to come after their own Saddam Hussein. Does that ring a bell?

      • He who comes to justice should come with clean hand…go and think about this and come back talking to me…you have a victim mind state and peoples like you are slaves forever so I don’t discuss with peoples like you..always trying to keep their own in captivity

        • HouseKeeper!

          Given what the other gentleman said you still didn’t get it. I am not sure there was any use of metaphors but parochialism defines how individuals who support a dictatorship would stop at nothing to make their point, notably the use of anti-western rhetoric. It was wrong, the attacks on Iraq, in fact the premise was false but do not confuse that with the fact that Saddam was a bloody despot like Biya. It would be bullheaded for anyone to make a case in their defense.
          I met an African overseas who expressed dislike for western ideals, attacked their healthcare system & nutrition. I told him his argument would be weakened by virtue of the fact that he is living for many years in the West & moreover life expectancy in Africa is just 55 years. He paused & stated “I may be wrong”. And you??

        • @ HouseInvaders

          yeah yeah yeah keep clapping….listen if i was stronger than You rest assure that i wiill invade you for the killing of blacks by police and you kkk…you kill more than saddam Hussein ok?? and who arw you to decide hein? shame on you…devil…you can’t even see your devilish acts that is how devil you are.. again try Russia and North Korea..you are only quick at the wick ones …vietnam hein

        • Ever letter ought to EARN its place in a word, every word a place in a sentence and so on; peroration is the end result of violating this basic lesson.

  2. Ashu time is the common denominator in life, no one has ever had 25hrs a day in the history of mankind. If someone has a more advance society and is more superior, that’s because they use their time in positioning themselves in that light. What do you mean by a starting point? Which frame of time are using ? any frame of time you take as the starting point will be same for everyone in the world. So try to use your time judiciously cause from your thinking in a hundred years you will still be talking of a starting point.

    • Please stop acting like you do not understand clearly my point…your writing are smart enough for me to know you are getting me…if by “If someone has a more advance society and is more superior, that’s because they use their time in positioning themselves in that light” you mean going around killing and creating troubles in others societies and countries then you are right and proving my point that for you …all road takes you to Rome and you don’t care about the damages you create….the only reason you are going in others peoples countries is only when you see them making progress and you want to bring them back 50 years! Libya is the latest fact! South Korea and Russia you cannot go there

      • Ashu say something better. You are making no sense.

      • That is why when I see my ambazonian brothers hoping that the US will “come and save them”, I feel so depressed. For the common byamsellam to express those envy I can understand, but the bushfaller who has been exposed to world news, to be unable to analyse all events and wars perpetrated by the US and come up with the conclusion that It is “all man for himself”, it is just laughable. They have completely forgotten that Africa was shared by the big guys, with each having his zone of influence and no ones is stepping on someone else cake. England stopped eating its african cake, but France has yet to renounce his. Instead of uniting to make their cake bitter, we are instead fighting each other over colonial heritage. I know who my enemy is and it is certainly not the bassa or douala man.

        • @Theman

          You got it man you got it all well

          @Anzhi
          As you see from other comments you are the only one no making sense from my post…maybe you don’t want to look at yourself??? I am in the west for more than 30 years and i CAN TELL YOU THAT YOUR STATEMENT IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER YOU PEOPLES GIVE WHEN YOU ARE CORNERED AND HAVE SOMEONE THAT KNOW YOU VERY WELL

          “YOU MAKE NO SENSE” BECAUSE FOR YOU GETTING YOUR OWN WAY IS THE ONLY SENSE OUT THERE!!

  3. Hypocrites….aren’t you the ones encouraging this crisis?

    Tell Biya you’re out of the game and see if he is not going to visit Buea and Bamenda the very next second for immediate negotiations on a federal system…

    • @Ashu,it is due to lengthy conversation that we are even trying to get your point of [email protected] ,if perfectly correct by asking you to say something better.Why,not be brief without twisting things for easy understanding.Now,you are claiming that @Theman, perfectly understand [email protected] also profit from it to make his own political statement.The US is asking for violence not to be used in solving the various grievances causing the present unrest in the two English Regions.They are the world power, which implies what they say must be respected.US can solve that problem in two minutes.It is only through intervention that the problem can be easily solved.Before the release of the detainees,it was through intervention.Going to dialogue for negotiations it shall also be through intervention.

  4. @Ashu This Ashu of a guy,probably from east Cameroon,answering a Manyu name from the South West is some kind of lunatic.I was expecting u to say that it is the west that has manipulated the anglophones.But no,this time around,u are blaming the west for asking u to respect human rights.The present united states constitution have been there for more than a century,if i am not mistaken.The United states is gocvern by the rule of law.Not by an individual.But in Camùeroon,Biya and some acolytes sits and decides what to do and what noty to do with the country.And u see nothing wrong with it,right? go and decide what to do in SC lets see…Go and open schools lets see…..abui ngan

    • United state constitution?? give me a break…where do you live? do you know that politicians in the US are trying to dismantle that constitution?

      Can you really set the US constitution as an example? I have no more answer for you…please comment the article not my comment ok?

      • Ashu = Mbappe. Take note Amba brothers.

      • Épée Dipanda

        Ashy is just a name the francophone guy is using, read his English and play it back in French it all makes sense. He is thinking in French and trying to write English. Probably an Ewondo or Beti petty thief masquerading as Moh Manyu.
        In any case they must get used to it.
        Enough of the rubbish, we are in restoration mode. Ambazonia for ever.

    • @kongosa
      Why from east Cameroon? Why not accept the fact that they anglophones who don’t embrace secession.
      I wish you and other believes come to understand that it is very difficult and it will never happen. Anglophones are now claiming to be Saints. Not true brother.

  5. @Zam-Zam Close your mouth.SCnians have gone past federal system.Biya has been behaving as if SC is a conquered territory by LRC.In the 90s,after the AAC 1 and 2,Biya sucuumb to the pressure of the anglophones and accept decentralisation.21 years after,Biya could not apply the decentralisation that was voted into law.How does this concerns the United States? Now that we have found ourselves in another crisis becos of Biya’s inability to keep to his words, we don’t think that it is only Cameroonians that can solve this crisis.Thats why we need a third party to be present before any negotiations.Third party like the UN,AU,Britain,France and Nigeria.After failing to decentralise for over 20 years,Biya have shown that he is not a man to be trusted.That is why we need a third party.

    • @Kongosa,

      it no longer depends on Biya+gang, the whole nation is now for a federal kinda system. CMR, I mean the pple not those thieves in Y’dé, cannot afford to lose part of her sons and daughters cos of the intransigence of one man.

      It is now very clear to all that we have got a Pharaoh whose plan is to go down six feet deep with all of his subjects—he’ll be mummified and buried alone—if it must be so.

      Either the army will take its responsibility at hand and do the right thing, or the pple would have to take their destiny into their own hands—I don’t see Biya swallowing his ego any time too soon.

      Whatever the case, SW/NW can never cohabitate under one roof—even if done officially.

      Na tam fo share dang oya fo grong so, qu’on saura qui est qui, qui fait quoi dans la vie…

  6. A genuine FEDERATION could resolve this crisis forever. However, Fame Ndongo repeated today that the form of the state is a NO-GO-AREA and therefore non-negotiable. He still believes that the present unitary system could be sustained with the help of the military. We are headed for serious trouble if Biya still believes that the status quo could be sustained manu militari. He is surely living in a fool’s paradise.

  7. What is the fate of the Commission on Bilingualism and Multiculturalism?? This question is credible and compelling because the members are ending astronomical salaries for no work done. The budget of this commission could be used to provide portable drinking water in villages and towns

  8. Two currents sweep through Cameroon. The first – the DO NOTHING current – consists of saying that every Cameroonian has the same problems and it stops at that.

    The second goes the extra mile to do something about the problems. This was demonstrated at the launching of multiparty politics against all the odds. It was shown again at the launching of the GCE Board which brought about a BAC Board as a side effect.

    The AAC went along these lines but was frustrated by myopic considerations. And the current popular uprisings point to the same direction even as those with entrenched interests and entitlements do overtime to stymie them.

  9. The fate of the anglophone problem believe it or not rests in the response of the people of the francophones.

    Dialogue will only happen when the entire nations pushes the government to adfress the state of the failure of the Decentralization process.

    A massive revolt against the regime from all regiins is what is needed. Unfortunately the regime as it is benefits the greed of the west so their lip service would continue

    • Heine,

      I saw you come out in support of the fictitious Ambazombi termite nation that is not supposed to exist in the first place! I was truly scandalized because i know that your family is among the scores of Bamileke that took refuge in Limbe… and there you were, shooting at your very own leg! Again, that was surprising to me.

      Let me tell you this, man… the day the secessionist elements made it a confrontation against the so-called Francophones, they jumped from the frying pan into the fire! You will be reminded that Cameroon is more complex than what the imperialist devils put in your head. That country is deeper than what you think… with tentacles everywhere.

      Now, some are chanting about chasing away Francophones… and you are Bamileke. So, where do you belong? In Limbe??????

      • @Ras Impostor Tuge,

        Your struggle to paint this struggle with your hate brush and make it a francophone vs anglophone bullshyte will explode in your face. Go and look up our newest recruit, General Kady Cissee, the Amba commander from Ouest region. This is a struggle of good over evil, a fight for justice and equity. You are either with the downtrodden or with the punisher! No wonder only cunning ones like Zam-Zam follows you shout these days.

        • Uprigjtness is not a cheap commodity so you cannot expect it from cheap people

  10. Seeing, is believing. Everyone, even the deaf and blind, know that we have had conferences,
    meetings, tripatite etc talks in cameroon, in order to solve one or the same problems. Even
    the commissions on multiculturalism, has become crippled, at it`s inception.
    Taking a step back and looking at the problems and seeking a solution, the best solution and
    answer to our problems for a quiet and prosperous future, is STATEHOOD.
    You may argue and even insult each other, but the fact of the matter, is that for the word
    PEACE to reign, that is the best option. Each part, doing it`s thing the way it suits.
    Imposing a decision, even fron a third party, doesn`t solve the problem. It helps to postpone it.
    We can not live, to plant evil and danger, to our unborns.
    This is a very powerful thought.

  11. The USA, was the offspring of the United Kingdom, as we all know. It had the same
    problems we cry foul with lrc today. It was war, that dictated the solution. What do
    we see today? Two great and powerful countries, that are the envy, of everyone. This
    is a good example at this time, to use as the example, to end the marginalization etc in
    cameroon.
    Out of this, then we don`t like peace.

    • You want war to dictate the fate of Cameroon! Go ahead… perhaps that’s what is needed for us to become like the Americans and the British! Unfortunately, those folks have their own story… and we must find our own way without them. That is absolutely what Fanon preached and he died struggling in vain. If Africans can’t find their way back to glory by themselves; and without recourse to imperialistic indoctrination, then those Africans shall remain the WRETCHED OF THE EARTH! Essentially, that is Fanon’s teaching in his masterpiece titled ‘THE WRETCHED OF THE EARTH’.

      You want peace, then you must sit down with all the other tribes in the country and straighten out your differences, period! You settle for imperialistic indoctrination, then you pick the demonic way!

      • Bep bep, bep bep, bep bep bep. ..Hard drug junky!

      • you always mix up things?tribalism is always in your mouth?

      • Preach, Ras. Preach, Tuge…if some folks elsewhere on planet earth had our diversity they would thank CHINEKE from dawn to dusk, for ever. And they would never let the said blessed diversity loose cos one must perpetually scapegoat others for one’s pitfalls–as if it all happened unnoticed—as if that man just intruded into a barren land, and declared, “I am the fon of fons”, or, ” I am the way and the light”. And so was it—and we all jumped up from our deep slumber with some great applause!

        We’re are already wretched enough, how more do we all want to be BLACK? Even MOTHER EARTH has had enough of our wretchedness, yet the cloned intellectuals that we all are would never allow it to rest…

        • What can Tuge preach? When he claimed Biya is the only man who can bring an end to the French Empire in Africa, it implies he is aware of French imperialistic indoctrination we are under. The same Tuge is the one mocking of Anglophones for seeking imperialistic indoctrination from the Queen. You yourself see how dubious we are, talking from both ends of our mouths. What dialogue can we have when Tuge acknowledges this imperial hold up by France, yet thinks Ambazonia should not fight for self autonomy? Btw, why has dialogue become the leitmotif now? How can you guys dialogue with cowards, terrorists? Tuge promised his SW would never be touched by strikes, he claimed Anglophones declared war on francophones. How many francophones have been killed by anglophone terrorists? Wanna get shame?

  12. Undercover investigations have confirmed that Laurent Esso requested the assistance of CEMAC troops to slaughter Southern Cameroonians. Note should be taken from the particular majority of the heartless Chadian and Central African killers that raised hell in Mamfe, Buea and Bamenda. They shall pay for this dearly. No sane government requests outside slaughterers to come and murder its own people. This is prove enough there are 2 different territories.

  13. About 300 people have been murdered by LRC

  14. most of the comments above in particular those bashing ASHU are a perfect thermometer to measure the kind of indoctrination and alienation that led some of us to the point of adoring our definitive enemies.what people like john dinga with a slave aryan name reproach ASHU is the fact he questioned the country we were indoctrinated from childhood in catholic schools meant to fabricate adults with unthinking brains.what is america?a country where at least one african is brutally shot and killed everyday by a red christian police officer decerndant of those who conquered that land from the original people through genocide and cannibalism.batholome de las casas says in his book a brief account of the distruction of indians that aryans use to hunt kill and sell the meat of indians in shops.

  15. five hundred years after this tragedy the decerndants of those who hunted indians slaughtered and sold their meat in shops have maintained the same tradition,and worste continue perpetuating it under pretext of human rights?were indians whose meat they consume humans?did they have rights?to say some of our super degree holders support and rationalise this kind of abomination with arguments drawn from the violent book(eh nwaneh buheh) “slave book” bible ,used to destroy this noble people is beyound the word tragedy.this kind of ignorance is sucidal.unfortunately this is expected from this good for nothing generation uprooted from our traditions,indoctrinated in the name of education and their minds brought under strict control.today their function is to defend our enemies.

  16. Zam Zam,
    We are all past masters at your mind games now! You are testing the waters to see whether people will jump on the federation bandwagon as usual, but read what Mr.. Akere Muna said. Popol compounded hatred and distrust of him by thinking he could project strength in front of his French handlers by unleashing vengeance on young people. By souring the mood, I can assure you that the end of his reign will not be anything like the beginning. This is the end of his long stay in power as he will continue to come up against the wall with Anglophones , until his masters in Paris get enough of him and show him the door.

    • So Firefighter, Akere is now a saint?

      Biya is already against the wall cos this matter is no longer dependant on the whim of his ego.

      Only a perceivable form of federation on the ground can give him some night sleep right now, assuming he still wants to be the first person to kick the ball during the opening ceremony of CAN2019. That is, if he sur*vives 2018…

      • Zam Zam, the saint is rather you! We Anglophones love the position we have now placed Biya in. It is up to you francophones to debate the future of La Republique ad nauseum. I take no pleasure in weather you think Biya is melting or turning into ice. That is the internal politics of La Republique. Ambalanders have no time for dirty tricks!

        • …whether…

        • Firefighter,

          there are old videos out there on YT of some lone wolves, patriots, five in No. or so, from LRC, who’ve ceaselessly been storming Continental hotel. And alone. We were all here, in this forum watching them. Are we more CMR than them? Luckily enough, their very last leader, with a bandaged hand, was wearing some woven bag close to his loins—woven bags don’t discriminate you know! Anglos or Francos, woven bags don’t choose their makers—wish they could tho.
          Are the intellectuals that we all are not able to put all puzzles together, and allow our children to prepare themselves for the bigger fight, at ease? Ask Ni Bah what the bigger fight is oh…

        • Zam Zam,
          You cannot call those who storm intercontinental hotel patriots and call those who carry leaves back home terrorists! Those who are going after the supreme deity of La Republique must be terrorists! If they are all from la Republique and you call them patriots , while calling those rioting back home cowards and terrorists, you now understand why no one trust people like you! You even blame people for making Biya fin of fons. Did giving someone a traditional distinction transform them into a monster? You are now equating victimizer and victim, putting them on the same level. You have made it clear that Anglophones are scapegoating francophones whereas they made Biya Fon of fons! This is their fault and must die for it!

        • No, Firefighter!

          I am looking at myself in the mirror, and sharing the blame too. Not being stingy with truth, if you prefer. And from there we can now move on and perhaps come back down to earth—and share mbuh later—of course. Whom are we/you fighting against? Bami is Bamenda, Bakossi is Sawa. Bami is Franco, Sawa is Franco. Who is our ENEMY?

          The said patriot on YT in front of Continental, with a bandaged hand and a woven bag is CMR. Isn’t he? Selective memory would do no good to a people that we all are, who’re already BLACK enough…

  17. The latest Reuters report has indicted this regime. Biya us in trouble. I mean big trouble for authorizing attack helicopters to spray live bullets on unarmed protesters. Finito..!

  18. By and large Cameroonians will solve their existential problem if and when it dawns on them to focus on the message rather than the messenger. The honeymoon of being enamored of a manifestly failed leader is taking its toll even as ardent devotees live in denial.

    People are perfectly right to cocoon themselves in eerie comfort zones and denounce foreign powers all day long even as they know in their heart of hearts that those powers call the shots in their comfort zone.

    The famous Kungfu fighter, Bruce Lee would enter a village and take on its elements one by one, each waiting for his turn, clueless as to the possibility of joining hands to face the monster. Boko Haram wants to reign yet starts by unleashing murder over the people, a practice Mr. Biya has adopted to much applause! Haba

  19. The question we should be asking is that ,do we have dreams for our own children of weeks just want Paul biya children to take over and continue over our own children like their father did us?.

  20. It’s a pity that in 2017 so many Africans still seek validation from elsewhere – always matching in some Western metropolis (London, Paris, new York… never Dakar, Ndjamena or Abuja). Did the USA not go to war to maintain the union? If territorial integrity was good for the USA in 1861, why is it bad for Africa in 2017? How many times in recent memory, have we seen the federal govt take a firm stand on renegade movements, and here they are finger-wagging.

    If having Anglo Saxon institutions was all that a country needed for success, why are countries like Nigeria not magnets for migration?

    • @ limbe kid

      you are very smart and keep preaching

      • Épée Dipanda

        Ignorant as you are fake Manyu man and true Beti you do not understand the ignorance limbs kid is spewing. Feel free to check the migration records of Nigeria.
        And as usual dumb fellows like you who do not travel try to downplay developments in Nigeria. Nigeria is wealthier, and more developed than the entire CEMAC. Check the records, they even beat South Africa to the top spot of African economies.
        Their success is evidence that federalism and Anglo Saxon institutions work.
        But we are not discussing federalism.
        The Ambazonia train has already left the station.

        • Do you know the misery that exist in nigeria?? why they have so much money and we are taking care of they refugee?? abandonned an entiere state?? listen i fly nearly every month to Nigeria for bussiness and I can tell you it is just a fake society like always they try yo copy the west and abandon their own! in the west peoples have social welfare…nigerians politicians cannot introduce same for their peoples.

          Now I am a true manyo man little rat…and we will smoke you fake dreamers and secessionist from our southern cameroon..we are brothers and part of Kamerun

        • @Epee Dipanda,
          It may interest you to note that the majority of Africans attempting to migrate to Europe via the Mediterranean, are Nigerian. If the country is such a haven of prosperity, why are its citizens attempting such a hazardous journey?

          Nigeria’s wealth has little to do with system of governance, but more to do with geography: the country is by far Africa’s largest oil producer, which constitutes more than 85% of revenue. Take oil out of the equation and that country will sink.

          Given the opportunity to emigrate to either Nigeria or France, where do you think the average anglophone would rather go?

    • @Limbekid with the same age old resolute ideas. Why not start with a little self introspection? Ask African despots to stop silencing dissenting voices that present power threats. Even the moderator of this website is an expert in deleting comments that doesn’t share his opinion.

      The protests shall continue in western capitals because as much as we criticize them, freedom of expression is a norm there. Besides, the Berlin conference, treaty of Versailles and the UNO that has plunged the continent in this mess never took place in Africa so what’s your point? The toppling of Mubarak, Moboutou, etc were all designed in western capitals. All you need to do is not participate as no one is being forced into it.

      I’d advise u look up what Alice Kom has to say in this one as she’s spot on.

      • @aGee,
        If unfettered freedom is a right in Western countries, why was Chelsea Manning in prison? Why are Julian Assange and Edward Snowdon fugitives? Why has the independent citizens movement not been allowed to flourish in the USA? You seem to have internalised your inferiority to the point you say anything to defend an anomaly. When was the last time you saw citizens of a European country march outside their national territory to highlight internal issues?

        • Because, …as long as good people stand by and do nothing, the forces of evil only gather power and strength. (Trump, 2017). It is simple logic that the strong must help the weak. Besides, back in the the days of Soviet Union and Mao’s China, there was enough popular protest by citizens of these countries in western capitals that contributed immensely to regime change. The biggest absurdity of it all is that you are comfortably enjoying the freedom that the Magna Carta brought forth in London and at the same time objecting the same opportunity to those who don’t have the same opportunity in the dictators hell any chance of getting the same favour. That’s very selfish and of you.

    • Limbe Kid, the American civil war had more to do with abolishing slavery than maintaining territorial integrity. Seven southern states declared secession from the union because they wanted to carry on with slavery and this led to the war of 1861.

      The only way your argument comparing the war of 1861 to the situation in Cameroon holds weight is if Southern Cameroonians are requesting secession in order to maintain an immoral and unethical institution. However, we both know that is not the case so please refrain from repeating this fallacious argument so fools like Ashu can stop showering you with unmerited praise for being “very smart”.

      On the other hand, Slavery was good for America in the 1800s so why is it not good for Africans today?

      • stop looking for excuses…we don’t want to know the reason..their reason was stupid then..just like yours is stupid today…can you see how stupid your arguments are??

      • I am not surprised you “don’t want to know the reason”; for as a fool your mind is akin to a broken pot and will hold no wisdom, Ashu.

        Nikov,
        You have time for agents of La Republique?
        Their history only from 1960 is unknown but he knows about 19th century America…heheheheh. I no want laugh.
        Ambazonia has left. They must get that into their skulls.
        If they reject peaceful restoration, armed restoration will be enforced. If we must sell the oil in Limbe for it. So be it. In any case we are not benefiting from it now so what’s the point?
        I think these la Republique people are not well read. A struggle that has lasted 50 years is not about to die because 300 people are killed.
        Ambazonia will be free.

        • lies and deceits will not advance your already sorry and lost case, Southern cameroons independence was conditioned by either joining nigeria or cameroon, therefore it was never and independent country prior to that, the letters of the british are very clear on this, the mandate called souther cameroons was deemed too poor or not economically viable to be one country, so how do we go from not being economically viable to be a country, and having to join either nigeria or cameroon to being an independent country? old man locate your nearest old people house/center and die there, it is ludicrous that an old person such as you who is supposed to teach pure and undiluted history has decided to twist it for its own pleasure because this is not about your perception or what you but about facts
