The United States Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Tibor Nagy has come under criticism following his recent comments on the Anglophone crisis.
Muslim scholar, Abdulkarim Ali has however come to the diplomat’s rescue.
In an outing, the scholar wrote “Dear Southern Cameroonians,
I see the emotions and misguided desperation at Tibor Nagy’s opinion about the statehood of Southern Cameroons. Please my people consider the difference between an opinion and a fact”.
“On the one hand, the fact is that it is our territory supported by international law and cemented by UN resolutions. On the other hand, his opinion is that he wishes for a United Cameroon. The mare fact that he wishes for unity defeats the premise of your emotions” he said.
He then added “Remember you can’t unite one thing. By definition, unity implies merging more than one thing together as one. You can’t have multiplicity of instantiation unless there is a given genius”.
He said “Bottom line Mr Nagy will even explain to you that it’s however up to you – if you asked him. He is well aware of your fundamental right to self determination. He knows about your history, legality and legitimacy better than you may assume”.
“Please don’t be angry at him, don’t insult him and don’t smear him. He is with you in essence and truth. I can proof that he is with you but ultimately is about what you want…” Karim stated further.
He said “Focus on the prize intellectually and piously.
Talk to yourselves more. Don’t talk about yourself/yourselves. Mr Nagy knows that his country is an epitome of immigration and revolution. He knows that liberalism is the premise of his society. He also recognizes that human rights which is what he advocates as a diplomat is an offshoot of liberalism”.
No diplomat, he continue will openly use the clear and concise language you will cherish and prefer to hear ” But rest assured they sponsor the right to self determination”.
“Don’t be a scared to go to jail, don’t be scared of the police or army, don’t fear death. The right to self determination is your right and Southern Cameroons is not part of LRC’s territory”he said adding “Relax and fly the plane.
Don’t blink nor waver”.
