The Administrative Court for the Centre Region June 16, 2020 recognised Edith Kah Walla as the rightful leader of the Cameroon People’s Party, CPP.
CPP Secretary General, Franck Essi says the court annulled decision no. 0000032/L/MINAT/CABB of 17 July 2008 in which Territorial Administration Minister Atanga Nji Paul recognized Tita Fon Samuel as head of the party.
The court ruled that Ms Kah Walla is the legitimate President of the CPP after the party dragged the Minister to court, said Barrister Hippolyte Tiakouang Meli.
In a statement, the CPP said: “It is our pleasure to inform you that the CPP has won a tremendous battle today! The Administrative Court of the Center Region has nullified the decision of Mr. Atanga Nji of 20 July 2018 where he illegally involved himself in the affairs of the CPP and nominated different persons as leaders of the CPP.
“The court has ruled today that this act is null and void as concerns the CPP. We, the CPP have beaten Mr. Atanga Nji in court today!
“We therefore continue as we have throughout, exercising our duties as leaders of the CPP.
“Step-by-step we are moving towards Political Transition. Even a Biya Regime court recognized our legitimacy today in court.
“While waiting for the official notification, attached is the notification from our legal counsel, Maître Meli!”
Observers say it is a feat for a local court to overturn the decision of a sitting Minister.
