Hon.Joshua Osih,first National SDF Vice President.
In an depth interview on Canal 2 in the prgram L’ arene, first National SDF Vice President, Hon.Joshua Osih,answered questions from the host on politico-societal issues ranging from political transition of the country and party and his personal aspirations,the modifications of the constitution,the bird flu epidemic,the achievement of the SDF,the senatorial elections,constitutional council and population census.
The MP on the question of his political ambition notes that he will to continue being the party 1st Vice president or aimed higher that would be determined by the collective will of the party.
The Wouri MP postulated in another question that the amendment of the constitution championed and called by some CPDM Sycophants remains a rumour. He insisted he will not comment on rumours because there are not information.
On the bird flu Epidemic Hon.Joshua said it is a technical and scientific problem and measures needs to be taken in order to curb it effects. He continued by saying that the decision of the minister was prompt, but those poultry farmers affected by the epidemic needs to be compensated. It should be urgent because is a matter of public health and social justice.

Talking about SDF achievement He said since 2007, the SDF has been fighting hard to ameliorate the electoral process so that each Cameroonian should have one vote through the biometric system. He further said in 2011, the party invited 35 political parties of the opposition to talk about the amelioration of the electoral process, including an independent electoral commission , a single ballot box, elections by absolute majority or two rounds.
Asked about SDF entering into government with the CPDM regime,the MP was categorical that the party will not enter the government because they would not want to be part of an authoritarian regime that has impoverished Cameroonians for more than 3 decades. He continued by saying that they want to win power through comparative politics of free and fair elections to change things.Also,He decried the fact that for political reasons, rather than socioeconomic and because the CPDM regime want to keep their majority seats in the Parliament, they are playing hide and seek with the true figures of the population Cameroon.

The MP further cautions that his party is not in power, and should not be addressed as such. He went further to defend the long reign of the chairman ,Ni John Fru Ndi as party leader since it creation by using the example of ANC of Nelson Mandela who spent 30 years as party leader.

He continues that “The Constitutional Council is the most important democratic institution of the country. The institution needs to be put in place to strengthen the legitimacy of elected officials”,declares Osih. though some pundits have regreted that, no institution in the Cameroons is democratic. Democracy is a screenshot in the Biya government. Biya virtually have all sectors within his palms, the more reason the Parliament cannot act the way Parliaments are suppose to act. The setting up of the Constitutional council only goes to add more powers to Paul Biya.
