Atanga Nji: «Les terroristes ont franchi le seuil de la tolérance. Ils n’auront jamais les moyens de combattre un Etat»

237online | «Les terroristes ont franchi le seuil de la tolérance. Ces terroristes sont dans une aventure sans lendemain. Il faut qu’ils le sachent. Le Cameroun est un et indivisible. Ils n’auront jamais les moyens de combattre un Etat».

Le ministre de l’administration territoriale a fait cette déclaration à l’occasion de la réception de quatre des sept chefs traditionnels enlevés puis libérés par les sécessionnistes dans la région du Sud-Ouest.

Dans une interview diffusée au journal de 13 heures du Poste national de la CRTV le ministre de l’administration territoriale Paul Atanga Nji a expliqué qu’en les recevant à Yaoundé, il tenait à apporter le message de réconfort du chef de l’Etat à quatre des sept chefs traditionnels enlevés puis libérés au Sud-Ouest ces derniers jours par des combattants sécessionnistes. « N’oubliez pas que le chef de l’Etat c’est le fon des fons dans le Nord-Ouest.

Donc il a été très touché quand il a appris que les chefs traditionnels ont été kidnappés dans la région du Sud-Ouest. 8 chefs traditionnels au total.

Et quand ils ont été kidnappés le chef de l’Etat a instruit les autorités de tout mettre en œuvre pour libérer les chefs traditionnels », a fait valoir le ministre avant de poursuivre : « le président de la République a fait du Cameroun un pays de paix et de liberté. Les Camerounais aiment la paix et la tranquillité. Donc il était question maintenant d’encourager les chefs traditionnels. Ils ont bravé la peur.

Ils ont vaincu les intimidations et aujourd’hui ils ont été libérés ».

Il dit avoir assuré au maire de Buea qui a amené les chefs que la lettre destinée au chef de l’Etat lui sera transmise. Il a ajouté qu’il faut qu’ils sachent que le président Paul Biya est avec eux, les soutient et que le désordre ne passera pas. « Que les Camerounais rejettent la violence, que les Camerounais condamnent les activités des terroristes. Les Camerounais condamnent les sécessionnistes », a-t-il illustré, citant le chef de l’Etat camerounais qui a souvent proclamé que « le Cameroun est un et indivisible ».

Paul Atanga Nji déclare que « nous vivons dans un pays où les gens peuvent librement exprimer leurs doléances ». Il rapporte que les chefs traditionnels ont admis que le chef de l’Etat est allé au-delà de ce que les enseignants et les avocats réclamaient et que par conséquent rien ne peut justifier les actions terroristes.

Il dénonce l’action des séparatistes accusés d’avoir passé à tabac l’un de leurs otages et les défie en ces termes : « Les terroristes ont franchi le seuil de la tolérance. Ces terroristes sont dans une aventure sans lendemain. Il faut qu’ils le sachent. Le Cameroun est un et indivisible. Ils n’auront jamais les moyens de combattre un Etat ».

Selon lui, les auteurs d’atrocités sont une infime minorité. Il fait savoir que ceux qui sont à l’étranger et qui les encouragent sont en train d’être traqués. « Nous avons réussi à ce jour à identifier clairement les sources de financement.

Le moment venu la justice va se prononcer », annonce-t-il non sans saluer l’action du maire de Buea Patrick Ekema Esunge, présenté comme un « Camerounais patriote ».

  1. After the rain comes sunshine!

    Forget about that ego game, Nji.

    We’re all CMRs, it is high time we all sit down and polish out this stuff.

    People back home just want to have a little signal that the gov’t cares, that’s all. It’s clear that IG cannot achieve anything, but we have to think more about the innocent masses (what matters) and forget about some lost diaspora folks…

    • I agree with you. We have made the terrorist hidding abroad so relevant. We simply have to ignore them and take care of the masses suffering inland. I am one of the folk who thought it was a mistake arresting Sissiku. His arrest made him relevant than he ever was.

      This battle was a diplomatic one, and the govt succeeded bringing the whole world to its side. Aside from a few US senators and public figures motivated by self profit, no govt in the world stood against Cameroon.
      Ambazonian diaspora can continue sponsoring terrorism, but it is nothing else than the last kick of a dying horse. Cameroon is and remain one and individible.
      That being said, the time has come to really address the issue raised by our brothers and sisters from the nw and sw. The time for regional autonomy is now.

      • I only hope that some reasonable talking is going to be initiated before elections are held, cos once Biya is elected he’ll intensive military pressure, probably under a brief state of emergency cos of AFCON. And that would be very brutal, that’s why all is being done to keep third foreign parties at bay.

        Wish most Anglos knew all the traps that were set before they were invited to be that grass that suffers when crazy elephants fight…

  2. SEPARATIST aka SECESSIONIST

    The Beti hierarchy has realised that ex-convict Atangana is doing everything to prolong the war. That conman is profiting from the war. That is why they asked Dictator Biya to replace that criminal without delay.

    Statements like «Les terroristes ont franchi le seuil de la tolérance. Ces terroristes sont dans une aventure sans lendemain. Il faut qu’ils le sachent. Le Cameroun est un et indivisible. Ils n’auront jamais les moyens de combattre un Etat» only helps to increase the momentum of the struggle.

    Believe me or not, the Anglophone Question will be resolved this time around come rain come shine. There is NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING Dictator Biya or ex-convict Atangana can do to prevent the COMPLETE, TOTAL, IRREVERSIBLE and UNCONDITIONAL resolution of the Anglophone Question.

    • I agree with you on this one. The anglophone question will definitely be resolved this time around.

      • SEPARATIST aka SECESSIONIST

        I am very sceptical if the Anglophone Question could be resolved under Dictator Biya’s watch. Dictators hardly learn from history
        Simply put, the next seven years with Dictator Biya still at the helm will be very chaotic in SC. LRC can NEVER defeat the “secessionists”, the economy will be in shambles, SC will become almost ungovernable, the killings on both sides will intensify, the radicalisation of the youths will increase, “Vivre ensemble” will become almost impossible, etc.

  3. SEPARATIST aka SECESSIONIST

    “Cameroun anglophone: au moins 4 gendarmes et 1 policier tués dimanche”

    FACTS

    1. There is absolutely ZERO military solution to the Anglophone Question. The earlier Dictator Biya accepts this statement of fact the better for him and his LRC.
    2. “Vivre ensemble” with the help of the military has NEVER EVER worked. That was the reason the Soviet Union disintegrated into 15 independent countries.
    3. DECENTRALISATION, the Commission on Bilingualism are solutions to the Anglophone Question
    4. Every war always ends with negotiation. Dictator Biya’s war MUST also end with negotiation between the belligerents Dictator Biya can therefore not respect his vow of NO DIALOGUE WITH TERRORISTS.

    • SEPARATIST aka SECESSIONIST

      3. DECENTRALISATION, the Commission on Bilingualism are N-O-T solutions to the Anglophone Question

    • @SEPARATIST aka SECESSIONIST

      “au moins 4 gendarmes et 1 policier tués dimanche” .

      what about amba son of a bitch, you are killing law enforcement and you re so excited about it. u needs to tell us how many ambas had been killed to raccoon.

      kikikikikikikikikiki water na water son of a bitch and bastard. your foremothers had been fucking with a Nigerian man during the Biafra war and we have you, terrorist.

  4. first, we need to check the passport and citizenship status.

    we cant dialogue with a foreigner ” Igbo descend in Cameroon “. SISIKU

  5. Take your medications fils de pute

  6. @James Biya started failing from the beginning,and he will continue to fail.This is a war he can never win.All police in Kumba are no longer putting on uniforms on the streets.They only go and wear their uniforms in their station,and when they want to go out,they change and put on civilian attire becos of fear that they can be shot by the seccessionist.Almost 80 percent of SC is ungovernable.If Biya thinks he can resolve this crisis without dialoguing with the seccessionsts,then he is wasting his time.Sisiku is relevant,so is Chris Anu and co.They are the ones giving Y’de sleepless nights…ha ha ha ha ha ha…

    • “He is wasting his time.” You dont get it, do you? Does Biya seem bothered by your madness? Has Yaounde cease finctioning? Has oil stopped flowing from the sw to fund the country budget? If anything, this war is helping biya maintain his grip in power. As far as Biya is concerned there will be NO DIALOGUE. He does not care. When time come Biya will increase the military presence and terrorist will be crushed. It may take 1, 2, 3 or 50 years. Just remember how long the biafra war lasted, but biafra could NOT secede.

  7. One thing that Atangha Nji fails to understand, is that biya will dump him some day.

    • Not bonly dump him but put him in aconfinement like Marafa. A fowl plays with a hygna not knowing its death has come.

  8. biyas regime is a french slave puppet,Cameroon is a embarrassing dirty slum country,all those voiceless people who support the regime are unpatriotic Cameroonians victims of black slavery mentality, second class human beings of Africans beggars holding the continent backwards, biya as a politician for 46 years not able to show any national development? the youths in many decades have dreams of leaving the country to better themselves or face long life unemployment, go to Uganda Kampala for example and compare to slum smelly Yaounde, biya’s legacy of embezzlement, corruption fake cosmetic measures, lack of care and compassion towards it’s citizens. those residing abroad in Law abiding, clean, caring nations outside the shithole french Cameroon will understand how terribly bad it is .

  9. if one is really in love with a caountry in the name of cameroon, then you cant waste time to listen to people like Atanga Nji..A countrys problems are not solved with force..
    I really wonder how he came to that position..This is just a prove the country is failing to understand simple things..
    This problem is now 2 years old..There have been killings, burning down of villages, raping women etc etc..
    A lot of arm groups all over the place…
    But such idiots like Atanga Nji still go around claiming its a minority..Its a very big issue affecting the whole country..Its a big problem that resulted as a result of bad politics..We need to rethink and work together as a nation, not with the spirit or assumption that francophones are the superior class. We have a big problem to solve . man no run.

  10. @James That is the problem with u guys.U keep comparing banana and plantains.Before the Nigerian Biafra war,no state had ever existed with an internationally recognised boundary,like the state of biafra.The biafrans wanted to creat the state of biafra.That is different with the SC case..SC started existed as an autonomous state within Nigeria in 1954,with her own PM,by name,Dr.EML Endeley.At that same time,Nigeria also had her own PM,by name Tafawa Balewa Abubakar.LRC ,at the time,did not even have a PM,talk less of a president.The IGBO domination ceased to exist in SC from 1954,when SC have had her autonomy under Nigeria,with her own gov’t.We are not trying to creat a state,we are just trying to restore a state that existed,becos of francophone domination.

    • Hahahahaha, Historian Kongosa…na man wey yi di win war di write history.

      “…when SC have had her autonomy under Nigeria,with her own gov’t”

      Why then did SC decide to unite with LRC? That “WHY” is what is making you hate history.

      Baba witi Flance dem bin be dey di concentrate on how dem go taclé André Marie Mbida then chop chair, Awala witi SC no bin be for dem agenda. How come we still unite?

      Ah tek Chineke beg you, no start for answer me witi Foumban, dis one na b4 Foumban…

  11. @Zam-Zam Why are u claiming to be concerned about anglos suffering when two elephants are fighting? Are u a child to understand that independence comes with a price?Is the state,economy not also suffering? The issue here is who will be able to resist more than the other.If the economy continues to be in shambles,u can always go and borrow,from who ever will accept to lend u money to buy arms and come and fight.But what u should understand is that,u may have the money,but we have all the time to make our land ungovernable from Y’de.U went and kidnapped Sisiku and Co from Nigeria.At least,u have given us a reason to fight back.Our reason for fighting is simple:release our leaders! Even the international community will understand why we are fighting.U are in possession of our leaders.

    • Kongosa, in possession of which leaders?

      Me ah dong tell wuna sey, dis trio Biya-Nji-Ayuk dem get some game wey dem di surely bouk we—plenty three-card ova dey for inside dis matter.

      Ifi no be witch, how 47 leaders dem fit gather all for one place liké fawo dem for inside kenja—sep mboutuku dem liké Shekau dem no fit meik da kana mistake…

  12. @James ”As far as Biya is concerned there will be NO DIALOGUE. He does not care. When time come Biya will increase the military presence and terrorist will be crushed. It may take 1, 2, 3 or 50 years.”…U have been saying this for the past two years,and the seccessionists are waxing stronger and stronger and gaining more territories.Do u really think Biya have plan B? Biya have ran out of ideas,and is just waiting for God to take control for things to be in his favour.Just look at Ekema,who was running his mouth yesterday,but it is evidently clear,that the seccessionists are giving him sleepless night.Buea was again ghosted yesterday,despite mayor Ekema’s threats….ha ha ha ha ha ….

  13. @Zam-Zam ”Why then did SC decide to unite with LRC? That “WHY”is what is making you hate history.”…I think your question should have been:Why Northern Cameroon did not unite with LRC also.That ”why” is what makes u hate history.Now,back to the dabate.SC decided to re-unite with LRC becos of the bad experience of the Igbo domination when they were with Nigeria,so in 1961 they decided to try,if staying with LRC will be better than the experience with Nigeria.Uniting with LRC does not mean that they should loss their autonomy and be dissolved in a basin of water.I could have still decided to stay with Nigeria and keep my autonomy in tact(What Endeley advocated for).If,according to u,nothing went wrong,do Cameroon needed a change of name,from United Republic of Cameroon to LRC?

    • Fair enough, Kongosa !

      Even though you’re tactfully avoiding to mention UK that was behind all this maneuver.

      One thing you’re ignoring, SC was to be 100.1% engulfed in NGR. Meaning, SC citizens were to become 100% NGRs, without any chance of ever maintaining anything, not even an ID.

      Now, was the move to join LRC brothers, who accepted a certain form of autonomy, a bad move?

      What came after is both the fault of LRC and SC, NONE is innocent. Do you agree?

      “Why Northern Cameroon did not unite with LRC”

      Elections were rigged in NC, unlike in SC. That is why Baba filed in a case at UN to contest—Bribed Lamidos voted for the illiterate populace.

  14. @Zam-Zam For me,i don’t believe that 47 people were kidnapped from Nigeria.What i know is that the gov’t says our leaders are in their possession.We want to see our leaders.If the gov’t knows that our leaders are terrorist,let the gov’t bring them to court,else,the war in NW and SW is a war without end.Chis Anu,Ebenezer Akwanga and Ayaba Cho have just shipped in more arms.At least,the gov’t have given us something to hold on to,as a reason to fight back.Release our leaders…
    The Y’de juntas have no jurisdiction to judge our leaders.So,the best thing for them to do,is to release them,and stop the blood shed.

    • Kongosa,

      Lawyers have met those 47 bandits, I even think Ba-lla was among those lawyers. Nji, their gang leader, is taking good care of them.

      Don’t be dreaming, according to the rules of their game Biya-Nji-Ayuk, they can only come out after Biya has been elected and later claim their checks.

      Why can’t Cho and Co. man up and join field Marshal and Ivo in the forest?

      Your mov’t has provoked NGR, there is just no way they can use her territory for smuggling arms—waste of time.

      Besides, coming days are going to be very rough for Amba fighters, they have already been localized and encircled. And the population in SW is now ready to cooperate should they try to take cover within the populace…

  15. @Zam-Zam ”One thing you’re ignoring, SC was to be 100.1% engulfed in NGR. Meaning, SC citizens were to become 100% NGRs, without any chance of ever maintaining anything, not even an ID.”..ha ha ha ha..really? Okay, agree,that SC was to be engulfed in Nigeria,but at least, that would have been in a federation,not in Etat unitaire centralise.More over,SC and Nigeria are all using English as their official language.The co-habitaion would have been smoother.
    May be u think it is only SC that have eperienced this kind of thing.Look at the SeneGambian Confederation.It did not take 10 years for them to realise that they made a mistake to form a country together,and they had to seperate,because,Senegal is French Speaking and Gambia,English speaking.

  16. @Zam-Zam ”Why can’t Cho and Co. man up and join field Marshal and Ivo in the forest?”…How is that your business?..I think u should instead advice Biya and Co to go to the war front,becos they are the ones that are losing in the field.

    ”Thecoming days are going to be very rough for Amba fighters, they have already been localized and encircled.”Ha ha ha ha….U have been saying this for the past two years,and u keep losing on the field.

  17. @Zam Zam ”Elections were rigged in NC, unlike in SC. That is why Baba filed in a case at UN to contest—Bribed Lamidos voted for the illiterate populace…..Who are u referring to,as ”Baba”? Is it Ahidjo? was his country,LRC, independent? He had never gotten the independence of his own country,and he was filing complain to claim a territory that is not his? He had not fought for his own independence and he was filing complain to annex another territory?..Man,be serious,go and fight for your independence first, before coming for a union with SC.

    • Kongosa!
      The more the ghost towns the more Anglos are getting wiser about your agenda, cos ghost towns and economic sabotage means nothing to Etoudi. Losers are Anglos, and they will soon make it clear to your movement that they have had enough of your fairy tales that does nothing to improve the daily lives of Anglos, just destruction, embezzlement of funds and fallacious promises…

  18. @Zam-Zam I can see u don’t even know your oponents.What IG is doing in NW and SW is called legitimate violence to the anglo population.No anglo have the courage to oppose the IG,else u will be dealt with.This is a fight for freedom,the strong will survive and see the promise land,and the weak will die on the way.No anglo can nurse that courage to come and denounce the IG,else,that person will be arrested and dealt with,by the restoration forces.Let any anglo step out and say that they no longer want the IG becos they have uffered enough.And the net day,u will see what will happen to them.It is an obligation to respect the IG’s command.They are incharge.They are telling the anglos what to do,they are not askling them.

  19. @Zam-Zam SCNC had been planning a confrontation with the Y’de junta for so many years,and Biya just gave them that opportunity,and they have ceased it,and believe me,they are not going to let this opportunity slip off their fingers.Siiku’s arrest was the biggest mistake Biya made,but at the same time,a blesssing to the struggle.SCNC had been waiting for an opportunity like this.Biya’s regime have made Sisiku,relevant,and so is Chris Anu,Ebenezer Akwanga and Ayaba Cho.SCNC had been waiting for this kind of opportunity.Biya have stepped on the accelerator and legitimized the war that Ayaba Cho,Chris Anu and Co,are fighting,against Y’de.Biya have given them a reason to engage Y’de in a war.If Biya had not arrested Sisiku,the IG would not have had any reason to engage in a war with the regime.
