Ni John Fru Ndi has regretted the actions of one of his leading party members Jean Michel Nintcheu, whom he says is trying to take the chairmanship role of the Social Democratic Front political party.
The decades-long SDF Chairman made revelations over CRTV radio’s “Cameroon Calling”, on how the Littoral region SDF MP is going against their rules and regulations.
The main concern raised by Ni John Fru Ndi in his media outing, regarded the decision he took to allow the SDF to participate in this year’s May 20th march-past. The move was contested by Jean Michel Nintcheu.
“I have told Nintcheu, there is only one National Chairman in this party. You are taking yourself as the National Chairman. There is one Chairman in this party, and the chairmanship you are trying to take, you are not doing it the right way. The party has a constitution” Fru Ndi stated.
He added that “up till now that I am talking to you, until I am voted out or I have said that I am tired and want to step down, I remain the Chairman of the SDF.”
Explaining the reason why he deemed it necessary for his political party to march on May 20th, Ni John said “We had to march. We are in the institutions, parliament, senate, councils and you will agree with me that the participation of the SDF in all these institutions has added more weight to the struggle to democratize the country.”
“You participate and let your problem be known. Like you saw the SDF supporters marching in Yaounde, carrying their hands on their heads. They were crying for the people. It was a sign Cameroonians are suffering and people are dying.”
According to the Chairman, now is not the time to be quarreling among themselves “We have so many things to fight for”.
He said he has tried several times to find out from Hon. Nintcheu what grievances he has against some of his party collaborators like Joshua Osih – First National Vice Chairman, but has not been successful.
“I tried before, inviting Nintcheu and Joshua Osih to come tell me what their problems are, Joshua came but Nintcheu absented. I told the SG to write another letter summoning Nintcheu to come report to me and he never came.”
The two MPs have been in disagreement for close to a year now.
All of this is happening at a time when the SDF looks forward to celebrating their 32nd anniversary. Activities marking the commemoration will hold on the 26th of May.
