Senatorial hopefuls of Frontline opposition, the Social Democratic Front (SDF) in the South West Regions have launched campaign in the South West Region ahead of the March 25 Senatorial and 2018 Presidential polls.

Speaking in Buea, on Saturday 10, 2018, the party militants took turns in cautioning the 2018 Senatorial electorate in the Region not to vote for people who will abandon them in times of crisis.

The SDF flag bearers appealed to the electorate to invest in them, because as they put it, there are the  best group to tackle the Anglophone Problem, a problem which they said, can only be handle at the highest level of the decision making process, which is the Upper House of Parliament.

Presiding at the event, the SDF Southwest Regional Chair, Martin Forcha Ndobegang, said only the SDF can stick her neck for the people’s interest, especially those of the North West and South West Regions.

“We demonstrated this last year, where our MPs stood up against the oppression of Anglophones in the ongoing Anglophone Crisis in Parliament and the Senate. Unfortunately, the CPDM MPs, who our people voted to represent them, abandon them at a time when they needed them most.

“If you watched what happened in the last Senatorial session, you would have seen that SDF Senators from the West and Adamawa were fighting that the Anglophone Crisis be included in the agenda of the Senate, while Senators from the North West and South West, who are CPDM were pretending as if the problem in the two Regions does not concern them, but they claim to be representing the North West and South West Regions. We want to present a team that will fight for the Anglophone Crisis,” the SDF Regional Chair, who is also the Mayor of Kumba II stated.

He regretted that if the SDF MP for Jakiri Special Constituency did not muster the gumption to seize the hemicycle over the issue, the Anglophone Problem would not have been mentioned at all.

“We don’t want our electorate to commit the same mistake again. This is an opportunity for you to vote for people who will genuinely represent you and not those who will abandon you when the going is tough,” he said
