Atanga Nji Barks, Kah Walla Bites, Tita Fon Hangs on as CPP Chair

The Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji has officially recognised Tita Fon Samuel as the National President of the Cameroon People's Party (CPP).

In a release made public on the 17th of July 2018, MINAT Boss instructs Regional Governors NOT to grant authorizations of any form to other representatives, claiming to be of the Party.

In an open letter to the Minister, CPP'S National Chair, Edith Kah Walla cautioned the Minister not to interfere in the internal functioning of the party. She says there is no legal basis which gives the Minister the right to talk about internal affairs of a political party; " There is no legal basis which gives you the right to enter into a political party's internal functioning and decide upon the officials or legal representatives of the party.

 We have received no official document in writing, nor have we been contacted by telephone or in person by anyone from the Ministry of Territorial Administration regarding any dispute in the CPP.|"

The open letter further states that the Ministry was adequately informed through correspondences on the 14th February and March 19th, 2018 bearing on the Exclusion of Tita Fon Samuel from the party.

The Founding President was found guilty of gross misconduct but has continued to represent the Party at various ranks.

Last week he was among 20 Party leaders who endorsed the Candidacy of Paul Biya for the October 7th Presidential Elections and signed on behalf of the CPP as National Chair.

On May 8, 2018 in Bamenda, Kah Walla and the CPP decided not to take part at this year's Presidential Elections because of the prevailing socio-political unrest in the North West and South West Regions which has not received the adequate attention from the Government.

The CPP has decided not to regard the actions of Mr Tita Fon Samuel as acting on behalf of the party since he neither has legality nor legitimacy.

At the eve of Presidential elections, the party led by Edith Kahbang Walla, remains firm in its strategy to achieve a democratic, political transition which begins with the departure of the Biya's Administration. The party has reolved that they will continue to mobilize, inform and train Cameroonians to carry out actions to achieve the change they have been seeking for so many years.
