Speculation over Sisiku Ayuk Tabe’s first cabinet has intensified as the interim president opted to keep Ambazonians in suspense over his first cabinet team. The head of state’s official spokesperson refused to comment on claims that the Sisiku’s cabinet will be made public in London after a presentation at the London Metropolitan University.
Despite widespread suggestions that His Excellency President Ayuk Tabe’s main cabinet appointments would emerge before the trip to London, Cameroon Concord News understands the cabinet will now be announced after very intensive and productive discussions with the Ambazonia Diaspora in Europe and the US.
However, the Governing Council confirmed that Mr Ayuk Tabe will nominate Southern Cameroonians based on their expertise and commitment to nation building. Our source also hinted that gender and age will be key factors in the auditioning. The Southern Cameroons rumour mill has been whirring following claims that La Republique is anxiously waiting for the Ambazonian maiden cabinet.
But even if the rumours prove ill-founded, the Ambazonian first cabinet is expected to be extensive, with Sisiku Ayuk Tabe requiring reliable faces to fulfill his mission. President Ayuk Tabe also has the option of appointing a Vice President. Earlier today, an emotional Sisiku Ayuk Tabe pledged to use all the talents as he prepared to shape the cabinet and wider government for the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.
Aides to the Ambazonia chief executive said that the cabinet would be announced alongside Southern Cameroons diplomatic representatives in the West and in major African countries. Sisiku Ayuk Tabe will also continue to hold regular televised press conferences, although it is not yet clear whether there will be one this month.
