Retired Advocate General at the Supreme Court Ayah Paul Abine has slammed the leader of the ’11 million citizens’ Cabral Libii for excluding federation and secession as options if any dialogue has to take place to solve the crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon.
Speaking on Equinoxe radio on Tuesday morning, Cabral Libii is said to have opined that any dialogue with regards to the crisis should centre around decentralisation.
This did not go down well with Ayah Paul Abine who sees in Cabral Libii a ‘bad faith’ to exclude secession and federation as options on the table.
“It has been said that the said Mr. Cabral Libi serves at a university. One is not sure whether as a teacher or a member of the auxiliary staff. If a teacher and he is still to grasp what Secession signifies, so much the worse for our university educational standards. But if he is a member of staff, all our compassion!,” Ayah Paul said.
“As regards federation, his predilection for federation as against it teaches the Anglophones all the more that they don’t belong there. When an Anglophone argues the case for federation, he is automatically officially marked with the sign of perdition. At the best, he is abducted, tortured and kept in captivity. Yet does he dictatorially rule for decentralisation with little perturbation.
He stressed that dialogue without preconditions is the only way out of the crisis.
