Cameroon opposition leader says will not present presidential candidature this time

By Azania Post Reporter

A Cameroonian veteran politician and the national chairman of the main opposition party in Ni John Fru Ndii has stepped down from presidential race, it has been reported.

Ndii stepped down when addressing a special congress of his party held in Bamenda town, according to Africanews

The old politician said he was dedicating the election opportunity to the younger generation.

Ndii (77) founder and chairman of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) in 1990 was heard saying he was not going to table his Presidential candidature , but wants the congress to chose a person fit to contest for the post.

Ndii has recently been embroiled in a war of words with secessionists in the Anglophone region who wanted the SDF congress moved from Bamenda to Yaounde.

Ndii maintains that he is an Anglophone citizen who is not pro-secession.

Cameroon has been ruled by President Paul Biya from 1982 up to now. He expects to contest in the coming presidential elections.
