Cameroon's main opposition Leader Ni John Fru Ndi has congratulated the Head of State President Paul Biya, for releasing the Eseka Train Derailment investigation report to the Cameroonian people.

According to the Chairman  of the Social Democratic Front (SDF), 'President Biya deserves a handshake for this, because it is the first report of an enquiry commission that he has made public since his more than 30 years reign as President of Cameroon'.

Speaking to the 'Le Jour' newspaper during an interview about SDF's 20th May boycott, Ni John took the opportunity, to express what he felt about the Press Release from the Presidency, on the Outcome of the Eseka Train Derailment investigation.

He said questions should be asked on the circumstances surrounding the publication of this report, and why Camrail was the only one blamed for this. 'We should be asking questions on the circumstances surrounding the publication of this reports, as well as the technical specification of Camrail. Accusing Bollore of being the cause of the accident is a good thing, but Cameroonians are not fools'. The Chairman added.

Ni John also stressed that the Eseka disaster also raises concerns on the 'poor infrastructures in the country, and shows that Cameroon is lacking in matters of intervening during accidents'

It should be noted that President Biya had created an Enquiry Commission to investigate the cause of the accident. The report of the investigation was released to the Cameroonian people seven months after the disaster, that took away 80 lives and left hundreds wounded according to official reports.

The report revealed that Camrail was the sole cause of the accident, as the train was over-speeding, coupled to the fact that the brakes were faulty.

Camrail had contested the report saying that their locomotive was in good shape, since they were just newly acquired.
