The 2015 State budget, bill to suppress acts of terrorism and the Emergency Plan were some of the issues discussed in a press conference on December 11.
The National Chairman of Cameroon’s leading opposition party, the Social Democratic Front, SDF, Ni John Fru Ndi, has told the press in Yaounde that his party is always available for a fully inclusive dialogue that can help avert the nation from crumbling. Fru Ndi reiterated that they were available to put in place an all-encompassing avenue for a clean political transition and thereby fully play its part as the country’s leading opposition party. He however, said the political inclusivity was not a call for the party to share in government but rather a call for government to put in place a broad-based platform of growth between itself, the true opposition and the responsible civil society.
The party Chairman was speaking in Yaounde yesterday December 11, 2014 at its Olezoa Provincial Party House during a press conference attended amongst others by its party lawmakers. As concerns the just ended session of Parliament and some bills adopted, especially that to suppress acts of terrorism, Ni John Fru Ndi argued that it was counterproductive to think that liberties must be stifled to battle terrorism. The SDF, he said, is against terrorism. The party understands that terrorism has to be fought with appropriate and determinant means but the SDF also understands that terrorism can be prevented.
Ni John Fru Ndi said the State budget has turned into a pro-forma for embezzlement and neither respects the laws of the State nor minimum standards of regional balance.
