The national Executive Council  (NEC) of the Social Democratic Front – SDF has decided to put to the forefront,  its “federalism Agenda” in the face of the rising Anglophone crisis. This was one of the major outcomes of the NEC meeting on Saturday September 16, 2017, as the party prepares for the 9th national elective convention in October.      

Nkemlemo Denis, National Communication vice Chair in his press briefing after the NEC conclave accused those advocating for separation of being sponsored, some by the CPDM. He said the party will accelerate the pressure on the regime to adopt a federal system of government. He said the SDF is the only party that holds the peace of Cameroon.

He blamed the government and the separatists of being extremist in the crisis. The SDF he continued is the only party that is found in the middle, with a reluctant CPDM government not willing to dialogue at one end and the separatist clamouring for a new state at the other end.

The Party Chairman in is opening speech said “the SDF as a political party that started with this struggle should be able to sit down and give a sense of direction”  adding the party cannot “afford to shy off their responsibility at this moment”.

Ni John Fru Ndi blamed the diaspora for hijacking the SDF’s model of government and in turn insulting the party. He called on people with leadership skills, with party commitment and sense of discipline to be voted when the time comes

The SDF has voted a budget of about 80 million Frs. for the convention due for  the 27, 28 and 29 of October 2017. The Adamawa, Centre and the South Regions are still under reorganization. The 9th elective convention of the Party is due to put in place a crack team that will lead the party into upcoming elections in 2018. If the electoral calendar is respected, Cameroon is due to hold a general election, municipal, parliamentary and senatorial election in 2018.
