The Lead Counsel of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) party currently defending petitions filed against October 7, 2018, Presidential Election at the Constitutional Council (CC), Barrister Francis Sama, says if the Council does not heed to his party’s request for the total cancellation of the election; it will give him enough reasons to see reasons with the Anglophone « Ambazonians’ Movement.
He was speaking this Thursday, October 18, 2018, at the dock of the Constitutional Council, while presenting the epilogue of his party’s arguments.
According to Barrister Sama, if the Council does not cancel the election; it will give Anglophone Pro Independence Fighters known as « Ambazonians » legitimacy in Cameroon.
He went ahead to posit that, it was shockingly unfair, for over one million people not exercise their civic rights on October 7th due to the massive insecurity that reigns in the two English Speaking Regions.
Quizzed by the President of the Constitutional Council, Justice Clement Atangana, on whether if the Council canceled the election and order for a re-run can SDF guarantee security within the twenty days for the re-run, Barrister Sama responded with all certainty that it will be possible within twenty days.
He urged the incumbent Head of State, Paul Biya, to use his high office and pay an appeasement visit to the Northwest and Southwest Regions so that Cameroon can continue to enjoy hear peace.
« Visit Bamenda, Buea like you visited Maroua. They are your children..they will give you a listening ear., » he said.
