Southern Cameroons Vice President, Dabney Yerima says the establishment of the Bank of Ambazonia and the Amba Bonds Project are necessary reforms carried out by the Interim Government to win the support of the diaspora and to equip the Restoration Forces.
Dabney Yerima made the comments during a telephone conversation with the Cameroon Concord News Group in which he also observed that fighting corruption in the Interim Government has made him a better leader and that financing the Restoration Forces is among the Ambazonia Interim Government’s top priorities.
The Ambazonia Second-in-Command revealed that he will be starting an international mobilization of Southern Cameroonians all over the globe beginning with the Republic of South Africa this December. Comrade Yerima added that the Interim Government’s priority has moved away from fighting corruption and misappropriation of funds to financing the creation of an Ambazonia Defense Force.
President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe replaced the disgraced former Acting President Samuel Sako Ikome under pressure from the Southern Cameroons Diaspora, who accused the gang of fake pastors of stifling the Southern Cameroons revolution and quest for an independent state.
Sako Ikome said at the time that he was the right man to take Southern Cameroonians back to their historic headquarters in Buea. But he reached a dead end in trying to resolve the financial scandal that rocked the Interim Government which has been further complicated by his refusal to obey the Ambazonian leader.
A source familiar with the exiled Southern Cameroons Interim Government cabinet said Sako Ikome and his acolyte, former Communications Secretary Chris Anu were both taking the last kicks of a dying horse.
Speaking at a news conference this week in Holland, Vice President Dabney Yerima indicated that progress had been made strategically in the formation of the Ambazonia Defense Force. He stated that the Interim Government was in agreement with the commanders in Ground Zero to appoint a trusted figure fully backed by all Restoration Forces and supported with a majority of competent, specialized people with military experience.
