When you opt to jump off a cliff, rather than use a climbing gear right next to you for a gentle and orderly descend …
I have held my frustration with the SDF party for a while now, and out of respect for what the party once was, and it’s past contributions to the change process in that country.
But after reading this declaration (or call it an apology letter to Biya) from the SDF candidate Josua Osih, it won’t suffice and it will be an understatement to say I am dissapointed. (I am hoping it turns out to be a fake).
The timing and tone of the declaration clearly delineates a coverted attempt to frustrate any form of resistance from any other agents of change still mustering the courage and momentum to challenge the despotic system in Lrc.
It’s not only a blatant betrayal of the few who still had hope in the SDF party as an agent of change, but a clear message to millions that his individual political survival and personal interest (be it business or whatsoever) over the next 7 years under Biya’s dictatorship is more important to him than the plight of the people.
We all know the party is leaking its own self- inflicted wounds, for defying and ignoring the plight of the very people that have guranteed it’s existence since its creation.
Whatever the case was, I want to think there was still an honorable way to pass into the abyss of history.
Someone has ill advised him.
To say it’s shamefull is not enough.
