Cameroon Concord News Group has consistently warned Ambazonians to critically scrutinize the intention of individuals laying claims to leadership to the Ambazonia liberation struggle before investing their trust in such leaders. A critical test of leadership rests on the ability of a presumptive leader to selflessly champion the defense of the people of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia who are victims of the ongoing genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
Such a leader must make a public and unimpeachable commitment to Ambazonia’s individual and collective self-defense until the invading enemy is chased out of the territory and every death suffered in the hands of the enemy accounted for and avenged. The leader must not be a gullible power seeker, money-monger and a ruthless war lord. War lords do not lead wars of liberation. War lords lead internal revolutions for political change. The reason is obvious; war lords do not emerge by the will of the people, and do not seek the mandate of the people for the realization of their objectives. War lords concentrate power in their hands, administer ruthless justice without due process, do not respect the laws and customs of war and mercilessly execute their own people who dare challenge their personal power with sadistic arrogance.
Cameroon Concord News Group in its cautionary editorials in the past anticipated the possibility of some opportunists claiming leadership of the Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia struggle not for the public interest but for their selfish interest. Cameroon Concord News Group ventured to mention names of some of such opportunists. Ambazonians did not take the cautionary postings serious enough to take precautionary measures to abate the prejudice caused by these individuals. Among the persons mentioned by Cameroon Concord News Group, was Ayaba Cho Lucas.
Cameroon Concord News Group authoritatively cautioned Ambazonians about this individual because a cross section of our cream of intelligence reporters serving with Cameroon Intelligence Report observed him from proximity for over a decade. His acts and conduct, his war lord proclivities, his avaricious greed, his intermittent unstable miens, his unguarded flippancy and his reckless disregard for collective leadership, have a potential to imperil the self-defense war of liberation. Time has proved Cameroon Concord News Group right. His penchant for ordering the attack of self defense units fighting for the freedom of Ambazonia for refusing to submit to his command is treacherous.
Batibo was virtually freed by the self- defense forces of Ambazonia when he laid ambush and abducted not the enemy who are torching our towns and villages, raping our girls and women, executing the genocide of our people but the heroic Ambazonian liberation forces who had routed the enemy from that local government area of Ambazonia. The immediate fallout of this treacherous attack which deprived our fighting forces of their fighters and weapons was that the enemy returned to Batibo which was virtually liberated and continued to slaughter our armless civilian population virtually unchallenged.
Cameroon Concord News Group today saw a video on social media where some Ambazonians confronted Cho Ayaba in London where he went hoping to sign an oil deal over Ambazonian oil resources with a British Firm. This encounter exposes the gullibility, vulnerability and greed by Ayaba Cho Lucas who purports to be a commander-in-chief of the Ambazonia Defense Forces. Because he is blinded by greed, self-interest, power-mongering, his sense of discernment and security are blighted. He is not a risk worth relying on for leadership. The cost of gratifying and worshipping a warlord can be costly unless promptly unchecked. Ambazonians beware!
Sacrifices made by Ambazonians at home and abroad must not be taken for granted by power and pecuniary interests of a single individual. This struggle is not about power. It is about the individual and collective survival of the people. It is about defending the total independence of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia. Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, the charismatic President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia cautioned Ambazonians that the Ambazonia liberation struggle was more than any single Ambazonian. That must be the threshold on which we must judge our leaders.
Cameroon Concord News Group, at the threshold of a so-called “reboot conference” called in Washington DC shortly after the abduction of President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and members of the interim government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, made an urgent call for Ambazonians to reboot the reboot conference. The intention of that conference was evil. It was not for the good of the self-defense of the people of Ambazonia against the ongoing genocide by French Cameroon. It was intended to quickly kill the interim government which an overwhelming majority of the people of Ambazonia craved for and put in place under the leadership of His Excellency President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe.
Cameroon Concord News Group pointed to the fact that the said conference was initiated by a consortium of strange bed-fellows, united only by their hatred for the interim government and their greed to exploit Ambazonians for money. The gravamen of their hatred was that the interim government had deprived them the legitimacy to raise money from the Ambazonia Diaspora using the liberation struggle as opposed to their self-interest. Prior to that and now, Boh Hebert has never ever given an account of the money raised using Morrisc, Cho Ayaba with a war lord mentality has never been accountable to anyone. Ebenezer Akwanga has suffered so much in the liberation quest and no one can doubt his commitment to the cause. However, he might have been railroaded to that conference because he wrongly believed the interim government might inhibit his ability to prosecute the self-defense war independently. But that was only part of the story. He might not have known the pecuniary motivation for the conference and the potential of Paul Atanga Nji infiltrating it through the gullible instincts of some of the participants.
The most serious affront to the people of Ambazonia is the fact that the so-called conference was called shortly after His Excellency the President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and members of the interim government were abducted and French Cameroun with the support of Mohammadu Buhari intensified the abduction, slaughter and genocide of Ambazonia. In the conference resolutions, nothing was said about these critical issues that concerned the individual and collective survival of Ambazonians. The meeting was indeed a front for racketeering and scamming on the blood of Ambazonians. Neither Boh Herbert, Mbah Akuro nor Edwin Ngang endorsed the self-defense option taken by Ambazonians worldwide, home and abroad and the interim government for the collective survival and the liberation of the fatherland. Boh Herbert issued a press statement denouncing the self-defense option and tacitly placing the blame for the war on its Ambazonian victims.
The revolution was saved by Chris Anu, who despite the risks flew to Nigeria to confront the Buhari accomplices of the abduction of Ambazonia leaders and the genocide against Ambazonia in their own territory. Chris Anu provided Ambazonia and the interim government, a platform and a voice to denounce the abduction of His Excellency Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and the interim government members of Ambazonia. He addressed press conferences, forced the UN to issue a public statement condemning the abductions and stating that there abductees were under the protection of international law when they were abducted. That statement from a UN department that claimed jurisdiction over the abducted Ambazonia leaders provided a strong legal backing to the Ambazonia cause, its interim government and the potential bases for accountability for the international crimes committed in and out of Ambazonia against Ambazonian citizens. The Rohingya decision at the ICC recently has critically put the perpetrators of these crimes on notice.
Thanks to Chris Anu, the interim government survived a coup mounted by French enemies of Ambazonia and from within by greedy power and money mongers. This is the main reason for their passionate hatred of the Secretary of Communication the Right Hon. Chris Anu.
The interim government of Ambazonia is the best thing that ever happened in this war of liberation and self-defense. When Ambazonians selected His Excellency Samuel Sako as the acting president of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, they were guided by the charisma, humility, dedication, patriotism and commitment to the collective good of the people that His Excellency President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe embodied. They were looking for an Ayuk Tabe in our interim leader. The sense of collective leadership and humility are some of the strongest Ambazonia values that distinguishes Ambazonia from French Cameroun. Also, following on the footsteps of His Excellency Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, His Excellency Samuel Sako has buried for good the divide and rule tactics of the enemy, French Cameroun. He has kept faith with the trust placed on him by a majority of Ambazonians despite the tactics of greedy power and money-mongers to derail his focus. Remain focused sir! Ground zero needs your undivided attention now than ever.
Cameroon Concord News Group was dismayed about the so-called collaborative conference which took place in Washington DC among the so-called front-line leaders. Cameroon Concord News warned swiftly that the conference was a strategic mistake. Cameroon Concord News Group cautioned against calling persons who do not believe in self-defense, are not committed to assisting our refugees abroad and at home and have not fully committed to the defense of the Ambazonia homeland as front-line leaders. It came as no surprise that their participation was motivated by the possibility that money was going to be raised to support the ground forces engaged in the Ambazonia self-defense war of liberation which they hoped to blackmail the interim government to share among them. The refusal of the interim government to fall into this scam is a vote of confidence to the interim government for defending the public trust and standing by our fighting forces for which the contributions were intended. That is what leadership is about.
Cameroon Concord News Group once more calls on Ambazonians and the interim government to exercise caution when characterizing persons and organizations that are not in support of the self-defense of Ambazonia, are not assisting the refugees and are not strongly committed to supporting and assisting the fighting forces as frontline leaders. Inviting them to strategic meetings concerning the self-defense and refugees support efforts of Ambazonia is nothing short of placing a poisoned chalice on the lips of a determined Ambazonia liberation struggle and its interim government.
