The Member of Parliament advanced the current situation in the North West region of Cameroon as the reason why he has decided not to go in for another term
“Given that many local SDF party officials have either lost their lives, been framed or arrested, lost their family members, seen their homes and property burnt down or have been displaced by war…” Hon. Cyprian Awudu said.
He decides to resign despite the fact that the party National Chairman, Ni John Fru Ndi while announcing the party’s participation in the twin elections rekindled his trust in all the outgoing parliamentarians of the Social Democratic Front.
Hon. Cyprian Awudu Mbaya is the longest-serving MP for Donga Mantung and one of those who fought for the representation of both languages at all levels.
