“There is no Act of Union between La Republique and British Southern Cameroons” President Ayuk Tabe 0
The interim President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, His Excellency Sisiku Ayuk Tabe has told Cameroon Concord News Group that there is no document detailing the transfer of power from the British government to the indigenous government of the people of British Southern Cameroons. In a telephone conversation with our chief political correspondent, Soter Tarh Agbaw-Ebai earlier today, the leader of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia opined that there is also no Act of Union between the British Southern Cameroons and La Republique du Cameroun. “This does not exist,” said the president.
“How would it feel for a student to go to university for 4 years then on graduation, his/her certificate is handed to the roommate? This is similar to the situation of the British Southern Cameroons. After colonisation from 1919 to 1961 (42 years) her certificate of transfer of power was handed to the neighbouring La République du Cameroun,” noted Sisiku Ayuk Tabe.
President Ayuk Tabe further pointed out that La Republique du Cameroun has now recolonized the people of the former British Southern Cameroons for 56 years. “This nation is 2 years shy of a century of colonization. Did the world declare an end to colonization many years ago? Why are humans silent on the plight of the people of the former British Southern Cameroons?” President Ayuk Tabe wondered aloud.
“When two Nations decide to merge and form one Nation, usually with the two States equal in status, they must get together and negotiate the terms of their union. At the end of the negotiations, the two nations must sign an Act of Union. The people of the former British Southern Cameroons submit that there is no Act of Union between their Nation and La République du Cameroun. Therefore, La République du Cameroun has invaded the territorial integrity of the former British Southern Cameroons” added the Sisiku
On a serious note the interim head of state revealed that with a government now in place, Ambazonians are exploring all available options to redress this situation and send the occupier to her side of the UN defined and marked border.
