Wirba spoke for himself, not for the SDF- Fru Ndi

John Fru Ndi, SDF Chairman

John Fru Ndi, Chairman of the Social Democratic Front, SDF, has said Hon Wirba’s famous intervention in parliament on the Anglophone problem was the MP’s personal point of view.

“When he talked in parliament the way he did I congratulated him and told him he talked more on a personal point of view; using I not we,” the SDF chairman said during the opening of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting at his Nkolfolou residence on the outskirts of Yaounde on Saturday March 25.

Fru Ndi disclosed that he had cautioned the SDF Member of Parliament for Jakiri Special Constituency and told him that in the future when he’s talking, he should make sure that he’s talking as an SDF member.

“But he went and organised a rally in Nso, his other colleague MPs were not there, the Mayor of Kumbo was not there, the SDF electoral district chairman for Kumbo was not there, the divisional coordinator of the party for Bui never attended that rally. And so when all this is done, you want me to make a statement, what statement?” the SDF chairman said in relation to an appeal for support by the escapee SDF MP.

The SDF chairman said he will not be supporting Wirba because the MP did not involve the party in his acts. “When somebody does something and does not involve the party, should I just jump in and start supporting?  Is the SDF a place for opportunism where you come and start your own thing, running in your own direction or it is a place where we can sit down, discuss and agree that we are going in this direction?” Fru Ndi questioned further.

Hon Wirba, who is currently on the run following a warrant of arrest for him, had written on Facebook vowing to continue  the fight till the Biya regime recognizes and respects the rights of anglophones in the country.
