Sisiku Ayuk Tabe
The team to be led by Sisiku Ayuk Tabe will consist of a vice president and seven ministers.
Anglophone secessionists in Cameroon said on Wednesday they had formed an interim government after a conclave in Nigeria between October 27 and October 30.
The secessionists said "The Federal Republic of Ambazonia" has decided to set up a "government" of Southern Cameroons with an interim President called Mr. Sisiku Ayuk Tabe. There will also be a Vice President and seven ministers.
In a press release issued on 1 November 2017, they underlined that their conclave in Kaduna state in northern Nigeria ended up with 34 resolutions.
Kaduna is where controversial Nigerian governor, Nasir el-Rufai, known as a snake, resides.
His government is accused of conniving with the Nigerian army in December 2015 to kill hundreds of Shi'ite Muslims. El-Rufai and President Muhammadu Buhari are Sunni Muslims and the Shiites have accused both of trying to exterminate them with the help of Saudi Arabia, which is fighting a proxy war with Iran in Africa.
The new "President" Sisiku and his team called on "Mr. Biya to stop interfering in the internal affairs of the good people of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia".
The Anglophone leaders urged the Cameroonian government to release "immediately" Bibixy Mancho and all those who were arrested in the context of the Anglophone crisis.
They reiterated the International Criminal Court (ICC) to prosecute President Paul Biya and some members of his regime for crimes against humanity and genocide.
The participants of the meeting announced the formation of an interim government on October 31, 2017, under the control of its acting president, Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe.
They invited him to form his first cabinet "composed of a vice-president and seven government departments, namely; defense; Homeland and Security; Finance and Economy; Education; Health and Social Services, Foreign Affairs, Home Affairs, Communication and Technology".
The Governing Council of Southern Cameroons denounces the rape of students, burning down of schools and the destruction of property "perpetrated by the military and law enforcement of the Republic of Cameroon."
It should be recalled that it is the Governing Council of Southern Cameroon (former British Cameroon) which organized demonstrations last October 1st in a bid to declare its independence.
