Dr. Nick Ngwanyam is one of the Cameroonians who think the announced soverign national dialogue is an opportunity for Anglophones, though he makes mindblowing reservations.
He writes: “We need to make the best of the half-baked cake. Even God did not ‘finish creating everything. We continue the art of creation with our talents. That is what the President wants us to do. It is a combined effort which is participatory
It is about being intelligent and wise and nor reacting emotionally”.
Indicating that he is ready to do his best, Dr Ngwanyam said there are many windows of opportunity that have been opened, but impediments, he believes, will come mostly from Anglophones and Francophones who think with their stomachs and not their heads.
“This is the time for serious business and we do not need more ‘republican republican’ stuff any more. The Anglophone leaders thinks what is good True and Just should prevail for the sake of Common Good at this technical moment, and the public should guard against some Cameroonian praise singers who like throwing spanners in the spokes of every wheel. They should just back off with their ‘hungry’ attitudes and give peace a chance,” said the medic.
This category of persons, he thinks, represent the greatest danger and they have been responsible for making a bad situation worse because they tell lies and live a lie.
Dr Nick Ngwanyam prays for H.E. Chief Dion Ngute to be courageous and truthful, acting in love and deliver the Anglophone from the chains of bondage and marginalization.
“He should create the stage for a better Cameroon. He should realise that many ministers and CPDM barons hanging around him and the President are poisonous snakes who will like to make him fail to give the impression they could have been better Prime Ministers. The waters have been parted and he has the baton of command to make or mar.”
“If he had never really prayed nor gone on his knees to ask for wisdom and understanding in humility, then this is the time. The awaited bridegroom has entered the hall”. Dr Nick
Dr Nick Ngwanyam also appealed to anglophones to use wisdom and not emotions in handling this open door.
“Let us put on our Thinking Caps and demonstrate that Love, Truth, Faith, Reason, Justice, respect and Merit along with humility are no match for arrogance, violence, anger and hate and
the Kingdom of God shall and Must prevail over the Kingdom of DARKNESS always.
“We must listen to the advice given by H.E. CHRISTIAN CARDINAL TUMI,” he said
He adds that: “I sincerely wish our nation healing and recovery from this senseless war and violence. We should not trust our own understanding. We should be careful with our emotions. Be careful about PRIDE and empty Ego. Be careful with ‘stomachs’ and those that have been making gains from the war economy. These are dream killers. Mr. Ayuk Tabe and others shall be released in due course.”
The Elite and Renown educationist is confident that 80 percent of what shall be discussed during the national dialogue is CONFEDERATION, which is the formula which will solve most of the problems and challenges facing the Anglophones and the nation in the absence of secession.
Dr Nick Ngwanyam is a medical doctor, proprietor of St Louis University Institute Bamenda with campuses in Douala.
