The SDF chairman has said that Cameroonians stand to gain little or nothing from the reunification anniversary celebration. Fru Ndi made the remark shortly after the official ceremonies at the grandstand at Bongo Square in Buea.

“The celebration does not bring anything new to Cameroonians,” Fru Ndi said, questioning how many Anglophones were involved in the organization of the event. He noted that Anglophones were not the least happy and wondered why the 50th anniversary should be celebrated in 2014 and not in 2011.
Fru Ndi recalled how in his address to the youths on 10th February President Biya promised creating 250.000 new jobs. “How do you create jobs without industrializing the country,” Fru Ndi wondered aloud, noting that the message read out by Biya in Buea was out of place. “Cameroonians are fed up with Biya’s lies,” he said, wondering why nothing was mentioned about Ahidjo, Foncha, Endeley, Muna and why their photos were not also pasted all over the place like Paul Biya’s. “What then are we celebrating,” a visibly disappointed Fru Ndi wondered aloud.
