Dr A A Agbormbai

Good speech, good decision. New blood is certainly needed in the leadership of the SDF party, especially in the position of chairman of the party.

You need a more collaborative and upright character, who can bring people together and tolerate differences in opinion while remaining flexible and open-minded enough to change his position in favour of a more promising one based on the opinions of other members of the leadership team.

The 'iron-lady' posturing of Mrs Thatcher is perhaps good in war-time (where it is necessary to intimidate the enemy) but is a complete failure in peace time, as Churchill also found to his dismay.


Should the SDF have as its chairman a francophone,with the Ni John charisma and possess more flexibility and a collaborative approach,it will stand better chances of success.Lest we don`t care to realize, after 1992, most francophones tend to look at the SDF party as an anglophone network.Even the move of Ni John to Yaounde hasn`t modified this image.
If we continue to think, only an anglophone should head the SDF it`s then not different from any other anglophone struggle movement with many francophone sympathisers.The SDF doesn`t only need a drift from its helm, but also changing its general outlook. That is,to convince Cameroonians from south to north and east to west that it stands for their interest. It`s stronghold shouldn`t be just Bamenda.
Another point where the SDF hasn`t done well, is informing its sympathizers, that, it`s normal for the opposition party to receive money from its government that isn`t bribe. People still think the old way that any money received from the state is betrayal. We can see this from how difficult it was to convince people entering parliament at a certain point was good or bad.
Ni John`s success has been based on his image as the incorruptible, which has been a very big boost to his party.With Asonganyi`s broken dagger,it would be a hilarious victory for him to point out clearly the stances of corruption or party duplicity with the Biya government.
We expect him to go above suspicion and speculation. Was he the SG or not, but he talks like any outsider will do.
Most importantly, had the government really bribed the SDF, this same government will stylishly reveal the mess up in a press or whatever means best known by them to discredit the SDF.The cry has been government and CPDM is corrupt, the latter would jubilate to see its challenger brandished in this like.
Bury the speculation of secret funding, the SDF needs real policies and a new leader to propel it ahead. However should other candidates be given a fair chance and Ni John be re-elected, we will accept the people`s choice and assume he knows his weak points and certainly will take a new dimension.
