The Communication Secretary of the Central Committee of the ruling CPDM crime syndicate has reacted to the SDF decision to boycott the so-called National Day celebrations. The anti Anglophone Minister of Higher Education, Jacques Fame Ndongo said that each political party in Cameroon has the right to express its opinions and that the SDF bears full responsibility for its decision.
Fame Ndongo pointed out that all nations have some sacred principles, which any political party that operated in the country must respect scrupulously. The Francophone cabinet member wondered aloud why a political party should boycott national day festivities.
“It is enough to re-visit the history of nations or political institutions to see that this is a glorious day that belongs to all citizens. What is more, the national day is about a major event in the life of our nation (referendum of May 20, 1972 having consecrated the historic advent of the unitary state), “he added.
For the Communication Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPDM, his party will stage parades with enthusiasm and patriotic ardor throughout the territory, on 20 May 2017, as usual, without prejudice to the watchwords of any particular political group.
Fame Ndongo explained that the National Day does not belong to any political party. It is the prerogative of all the citizens of the Republic. Expressing his frustration, the Francophone political elite hinted that other parties will parade. And they will be many.
