Cameroon - Paul Biya In A State Of Frustration Declares Consortium Leader Tapang Ivo Wanted

Paul Biya and his crooked advisers have issued an arrest warrant for Tapang Ivo, who acts as Interim Consortium leader ever since the arrest of Barrister Agbor Balla who was the President of the consortium.

The news first went viral earlier on Tuesday, 24 January 2017 on press review, a program that runs on canal2 international.It was the main headlines of a French newspaper in Cameroon.There have been numerous reactions to the news within Anglophone circles on social media.Tapang Ivo himself reacted to the news by addressing President Paul Biya directly.Below is a press statement he released on his Facebook wall;

Dear Paul Biya,

You can send the best of your journalists to vilify and demonize me. But they will never show, investigate or present any shred of evidence that I have ever called for violence or sought a regime-change in Cameroun or Cameroon.

Did I ever ask for a regime change? Did I ever call anyone to pick up pick up arms?

All my posts are on Facebook. Go and research about me since 10 years ago and beyond. I have always stood and preached for good governance, the rule of law, democratic accountability. I am an unrepentant advocate those values including positive peace.

You see Mr. Paul, I have always defined journalism as the ability to hold power to account. Of what use is a citizen to any country if he or she cannot hold power to account? Some of your local French journalists lack every journalistic ability and credibility. In fact, they practice pay- for-play or pay- for-publish.

You cannot succeed with your smear propaganda against this winning struggle that you vaguely call "revolution." A revolution against what? Against you? Wrong! Stop feeding LIES to your few and decreasing followers.

You are insignificant to us. In truth, the struggle is not against ANY HUMAN. Our Francophones remain our brothers and sisters. The struggle is against the suppression of universally accepted values, gross poverty and bad governance in West Cameroon, and the clear abuse of equal rights for all in a gangster "unitary system."

Do you know that even Francophones are the poorest in the country? I pity how they've been surviving without roads, hospitals, better life, etc., for 34 years. Terrible and impossible!

Will Federalism not benefit you, me, them, us, we, wuna, etc.? You are a rogue, Mr. Paul.

Likewise, my people have the full right to seek self-determination which is an inalienable right. My people have suffered much pain. We cannot see that happen again. They must resist you alone if you deny to dialogue on their problemssssss+.

When did inclusive dialogue with all relevant parties become a crime? Under whose law? Your Hammurabi law? Take a break!

Now, I see you have started setting the agenda for my arrest through your cheap and poorly presented gombo paper. Crafting headlines like "WANTED" is childish. Wanted by who? By you local dictator or the "newspaper" for a job?

Grow up, Mr. Paul. Or if you are already grown, then resign.

Violence cannot drive out violence. Only peace can do that. Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.

We come with the light to flush out your darkness. We come with peace to flush out your violence. Are you shocked that our peaceful approaches could paralyze the entire country and make your terrorist soldiers jobless? This is the tip of the iceberg.

You see, Sir, the difference between the French- speaking Cameroonian and the English-speaking Cameroonian is that while the French one is taught how to follow leadership like a sheep, the English culture teaches us how to question power and hold leadership accountable.

How does that make us "terrorists?" We are freedom fighters from dictatorship and tyranny.
