Cameroon:SDF holds stormy NEC meeting to decide Osih’s fate

The fate of Joshua Osih hangs on a balance as the National Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Front holds a stormy meeting on Saturday November 03 in Yaounde.

This will be the party’s first gathering of any sorts since the October 7 Presidential election as the seek to assses their performance under Joshua Osih.

This is the worst outing of the SDF at the Presidential election as their flag bearer finished fourth with just over three percent of the votes far behing winnerr Paul Biya, runner up Maurice Kamto and third Cabral Libii.

This performance has not gone down well with a section of the party’s members who are calling for the resignation of Joshua Osih as Vice President of the party.

The alarm bells started ringing from the SDF section in Germany who immediately calledfor Osih to step down from his position as Vice President or be sacked by the party.

They re-echoed their stance on Friday ahead of the NEC meesting scheduled for Saturday in Yaounde.

The Mayor of Wum, Kuate Wambo Guy equally added his voice to those calling for Joshua Osih’s head slamming the SDF flagbearer for what he terms reckless outings by the SDF Presidential candidate after the election.

However, the conservative wing of the party remains adamant Joshua Osih should keep his position as Vice President of the party and called on all party supporters to come together and get the party back on track.

Discussions at the NEC on Saturday will therefore be very crucial going forward with the Legislative and Municipal elections in view.
