This was during a conclave organised by members of the SDF Parliamentary Group in Yaounde on July 9, 2019. Going by the resolution drafted by Hon Fusi Naamukong Wilfred alongside SDF Parliamentary Groups leaders, in accordance with the provision of section 57 of the Standing Orders of National Assembly, the party advocates a Peace, Truth and Reconciliation Commission to effect a mediated settlement that will involve those inside and outside the country.

Despite repeated calls for meaningful dialogue by the Cameroonian people and their wailing to see lasting peace return to the North West and South west Regions, the situation keeps deteriorating. The party frowned at the daily killings of civilians and defense forces in the North West and South West Regions as a result of the crisis.

While stressing on the European Parliament Resolution on Human Rights Abuses, the party condemned the grave human rights violations and the crimes against humanity perpetrated on the peoples of the North West and South West Regions during the ongoing crisis.

The numbers of Internally Displaced Persons in these regions have been growing ever since the crisis sparked off in 2016 the Parliamentary Group Leaders said adding that schools were near total closure while private and public properties were being destroyed every day.

They complained that in the face of all these, the Speaker of the National Assembly, Cavaye Yeguie Djibril, speaks of government’s apparent readiness to seek an end to the crisis in the North West and South West Regions.

It was against this backdrop they said, that the SDF which stood to defend and protect the interests of the Cameroonian people, called for a total ceasefire by all parties involved in the crisis.

They said the SDF had requested the release of all those in detention and that amnesty be granted to those in both Cameroon and in the Diaspora who are affected and involved in this crisis.

Going by their declarations, SDF envisaged compensation to all  victims of the crisis after a broad based evaluation of lives and property destroyed and also the setting up of a deadline for the execution of this resolution.

Still going by the resolutions arrived at, it was suggested that elections should only be organised after the crisis in the North West and South West Regions had been resolved, the parliamentarians concluded.
