Anglophone Crisis: Richard Bona offers the befitting solution to Biya, asks him to release Sisiku Ayuk Tabe

The famous Cameroonian artist draws the attention of the Head of State, Paul Biya, to the disintegration of the situation in the North-West and South-West regions. He also pleads for the release of Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his companions, to consider a way out of the crisis.

The famous bass player Richard Bona never stops pouring out on the crisis in the North West and South West regions. He particularly resents the Yaoundé regime, and its management of this crisis. Currently on tour in Europe, he spoke once again in the evening of Wednesday March 11, 2020 in Istanbul (Turkey), in a video posted on his Facebook account. 

Very iconoclastic, and particularly bitter with the posture of the Head of State, Paul Biya, with regard to this situation, Richard Bona wanted first of all to send him a message: "The solution is not military Sir Biya, think again! And again, you're not going to listen to me. You will still fail. The solution is not military, ”he chants. 

He exhorted the President of the Republic to "listen to other sounds of bells", and to offer possibilities of negotiations on the form of the State, which constitutes according to him, the true apple of discord. “I have been telling you for four years: federation is not separation.. We want peace, and this peace requires a mechanism which is simple: it is federalism. If it is not federalism, it will be separation, a real separation. But if you want the united state..., thing thing ..., it won't happen anymore. Do not dream anymore ».

Richard Bona clearly shows his support for the populations of these two regions, which, for their part, are in a position of self-defense against what he considers attacks by the Cameroonian army. “When we decided to send the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) to solve the problem, I already found it a bit arrogant. We cannot brutalize people who have not taken up arms. They weren't the ones who took up arms at the start, "he said. 

For him, the separatists simply reacted to the attacks of the Cameroonian army. Also, he calls for the release of Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, the leader of Ambazonia, as well as all those arrested in the context of the crisis, in order to envisage solutions for the outcome.
