War Ambazonia - The Life of Paul Atanga Nji in Danger - Bamenda

The opponent Denis Emilien Atangana likens the nominations of Paul Atanga Nji and Nalova Lyongha to provocation towards the populations of North-West and South-West.

The presence of two Anglophones in important positions in the government built on March 2, 2018 does not rejoice the opponent Denis Emilien Atangana. Far from there. Former member of the opposition parties MRC and PAL blasted the nominations of Nalova Lyongha and Paul Atanga Nji on March 4, 2018 during Canal 2 International's "Canal Presse" debate program.

"Even if the president would have wanted to entrust posts to English speakers it is not the same to Paul Atanga Nji, or this lady. Because we know that these two faces have contributed to fuel radicalization on the English side, "he said, recalling the hostility that some in the North-West region have at Atanga Nji.

"If today we take Mr. Paul Atanga Nji, we place him on a street in Bamenda, I assure you if he is alone and he is not kept, the news that will come back to Yaoundé will not be good and positive, "said the young politician adding as a reminder of incidents that occurred at the beginning of the Anglophone crisis that" this man almost lost his life in Bamenda ".

Denis Emilien explains that these promotions supposed to appease the angry Anglophones risk rather to produce the opposite effect. "The creation of the Ministry of Decentralization and Local Development is a provocation for our English-speaking compatriots. 

In the sense that we have today a debate that is solid: that of reviewing the form of the State of Cameroon that does not benefit all Cameroonians. We need to engage in governance that allows power to be at the grassroots level, at the local level. "

He believes that Anglophones no longer want to rejoice in the promotion of one of their own, preferring real solutions to the problems they pose. "The problem for Cameroonians today is no longer that the job has been given to my cousin, to our family, to our village. Because you figure Article 2 is not collective, it is individual. 

The fact that we appointed Mr. Atanga Nji as Minister of Territorial Administration is his problem with his children. Because when he puts them to ENAM, not all anglophones will be affected. The appointment of Mrs. Nalova Lyongha does not concern all English speakers ".

Denis Emilien Atangana says that the break-up of the Ministry of Territorial Administration is not a strong signal for decentralization. He maintains that a real debate is needed on the form of the state. He thinks that the present situation only helps the military bourgeoisie, the administrative bourgeoisie. 
According to him, those who argue that for Cameroon is one and indivisible, actually want to say that it is the "budget is one and indivisible". It would be for him for this reason that "people are blocking decentralization and are afraid of federalism".
