Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, jailed leader of the Self -proclaimed state of Ambazonia has called for continued resistance if independence is not granted.
In a message released Saturday October 1,2022 Mr Ayuk serving a life jail term in Cameroon’s capital Yaounde said the independence struggle is a reality.
October 1 is commemorated as independence day by activists fronting for the creation of separate English state from dominant French speaking Republic of Cameroun.
In a message from within the prison walls to mark this year’s celebration Mr Ayuk Tabe sounded optimistic.
“We have stood firm.We continue to walk tall and straight even as we fight to once and forever restore the independence of our beloved nation, Ambazonia”, said the jailed separatist leader recalling that, “For more than half a century our parents before us and we until a few years ago lived a deliberate lie in a ‘come we stay’ relationship that was faking for the real deal”.
“We know today that we can not tell our children anything about their destinies that will not be a lie” he went on.
Addressing naysayers of Ambazonia project, the computer engineer turned separatist leader said, “From the onset , naysayers said we fold and submit in subservience.They said that our enterprise to defend our families and our land from a raging maniacal adversary was naive and impossible”
Looking at the road covered, the jailed leader added that “You have proven everyone of them dead wrong.In this war, our collective wounds and sacrifices remind us of the huge price we must pay for our liberties”
Acknowledging the human and material loss so far, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, noted that the quest for freedom has never been an easy one.
“Freedom and liberty everywhere in every age and time have been gotten only by sweat, tears, blood and loss of human lives by those few people brave enough to dare to be liberated and free” Sisiku noted adding that, “The people of Ambazonia shall forever be remembered for the magnificence of courage,we have to endure to liberate ourselves”
According to him, it has been regrets all along with the kind of treatment metted the people he claim to fight for their liberation.
“Since 1961, even our parents ingratiated themselves to la Republique du Cameroun,all we have received in return is shame, humiliation, insult, abuse, torture and summary executions ” the separatist leader went on.
With all these he said, it was time to fight and victory is on their side.
“The time came and we as a people have had to sink or to swim.We have had lower as cowards or to fight.As it is our right,we choose to fight. We are fighting most valiantly,beyond every expectations” Sisiku boasted
Believing that independence is near he said, “We thank God all mighty we are winning too.Ambazonia is a reality”
He never the less wished his comrades well as they celebrate their independence day
“I join with you to celebrate today as our children shall celebrate into perpetuity every October 1,this Wonderful independence day.May God all mighty continue to bless you.May God bless Ambazonia” Sisiku said said with optimism.
