In the north shell are the deeply enshrined salient points raised in the Address of the National Chairman of the Social Democratic Front SDF NI John Fru Ndi to the Nations Youths of Cameroon eve (9th February) to the occasion of the Celebration of the 49th Edition of Youth Day manifestations in Cameroon.
Fru Ndi, at his Ntarikon residence lamented after his address to youths of the Nation before the cream of Journalist present that he regretted the havoc the Islamic sect is causing around West Africa but is happy that their devilish actions and the extend of their increasing might has pushed Cameroonian CPDM bigwigs to resort to prayers and to be prayer conscious as the best remedy to the situation that is gradually going out of hands. He said I quote “something Di Spoil Fix some one” as the local pidgin parlance holds. “Before it was unusual to see CPDM elite praying after the anthem in public ceremonies, today the reverse is true in most of their staged managed ceremonies, like the propaganda anti-terrorism solidarity march staged against Boko Haram recently which was characterized by prayers of all sorts”.
Fru Ndi in his usual attack to the system and regime stoned at the deploring economic situation of the country full of short comings at every level, government policies and actions which were not flexible to demanding need while looking extensively on the percentage of jobless youths and what the future hold for them.
“The fact is that our production system has completely lost its structures with the creation of an insignificant informal sector. Since employment in the formal sector is highly selective and requires skills which our professional training system does not provide, close to 72%of youths of the working age, those between 17-40 are employed by the formal sector. These are the type of jobs that are trumpeted to you. Whereas, these jobs do not give you security, rather they continuously keep you in a precarious situation. In effect, with such jobs, it is practically impossible to make savings and purchase for instance, a piece of land for industrial farming, a house or to envisage a decent life for your children; notably sending them to good schools is impossible, besides, jobs in the informal sector are not included in the financial system. This makes it impossible for you to take out loans in order to boast consumption in your households…”.
Regretting the havoc his party caused in the early 90s to Cameroon and Cameroonians, in the form of “Ghost Town”, looting, property lost, destruction and human damages which are immense, the chieftain of the social democratic front observed with remorse that it cemented the base or the cacus for youth’s liberation in the hands of a centralized system full of dictatorship and the wanton desire to stay on and maintain grip to power. Hear him “our struggle has always been guided by the urgent necessity to avoid such moments of self destruction. We owe this peace that I know you cherish dearly, to the fact that you and I had always avoided the traps of division and hatred, laid sometimes, by the same persons who claim to promote peace. During the first pluralistic Presidential elections in our country, even though I emerged victorious, I took the awesome responsibility not to rule in chaos and in a pool of blood. It was a difficult decision to make but I was more concerned with your wellbeing than with my personal interest. You who in the past did not constitute the majority and did not have political awareness. The hope, that you represented already, was for me the most precious value for the nation”.
Putting a nail on the subject matter, Fru Ndi call on the youth to champion the course for the fight against Boko Haram by not being mislead into wanton behaviors that will not demonstrate true citizenship and patriotism which is the fundamental upon which a peaceful and united Republic is belt.
Sounding very optimistic with the last paragraphs of his address to the Nations Youth’s, he regretted what will befall Cameroon in the event of the sudden departure of President Paul Biya with the way his government and institution functions.
