Dr Samuel Sako has been ‘sworn in’ as President of the federal republic of Ambazonia.
He was sworn in by Elvis Kometa, member of the self proclaimed state of Ambazonia restoration Council.
The change of titles from Acting Interim President to President has brought mixed feelings especially from the camp of Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, whose supporters say he remains the President of Ambazonia.
In his inaugural speech, Dr Sako focused on what he said was the “full weight of what it means to carry the hopes of 8 million people”.
Stating that he won’t fail in his new role, he went on to note his re-nomination of Dr Abongwa Harricine as new Vice President of the interim government.
“All previous appointments in the cabinet and the presidency maintain their present posts of responsibility. I will procedurally write to the Restoration Council to make this decision official and permanent” he said.
Dr Sako also produced a list of 22 actions he said were achievements recorded. These among other things included he said was the stopping of the “presidential election in 2018 in 95% of our territory”, getting the Cameroon government sanctioned for the first time by the US and other countries and stopping AFCON 2019 from holding ” in both our territory and La Republique due Cameroon”.
To him, when the time comes to leave the position, he will without seeking to move with his followers.
The latest move has since faced a lot of criticism as many say it simply creates more division in a struggle that has already been marked by several stains and scandals.
