The leader of the Ambazonia Interim Government and the Vice President of the Interim Government Care, have both said while they are pursuing a diplomatic means to end the crisis, a military option is primordial because Cameroon’s President is not showing any signs of withdrawing. During their end of year messages, Dr Samuel Sako of the Interim Government and Dabney Yerima of IG Care said they plan to frustrate Cameroon from organising the CHAN 2021.
Cameroons president, Paul Biya said during his end-of-year speech on December 21, 2020 that the only solution for separatist fighters is to drop their weapons and integrate the DDR centres. According to Biya, 86, the holding of the Major National Dialogue in 2019 was a success that will lead Cameroon out of the ongoing impasse in the two Anglophone regions.
But Separatists leaders have said they will purchase more guns to fight Cameroon military and regain their independence as was the case before 1961.
Samuel Sako said:
We have declared all players, match officials and Coaches, persona non grata. Warns hotels, individuals, public figures and participatory. “I have not declared any ceasefire, Ambazonia restoration Forces have not declared any ceasefire. We have sent official letters to all participatory countries that the CHAN, AFCON has been banned in Ambazonia.”

Says that Kumba School Massacre was committed by Government forces to implicate Ambazonia fighters. Key witnesses in most cases have disappeared.
Calls on the UN Security Council to establish an independent fact-finding mission to investigate crimes – It smells like complicity for the UN Security Council to keep on hearing only from one party.
Silence but aggressive diplomacy has been the cornerstone in 2020 with some UN Security Council members supporting the Swiss Process.
Tells France, you do not have to kill and displace others just to preserve your interest. The interest you are trying to preserve through this senseless proxy war will be jeopardised if Ambazonia is not free.
All Ambazonia Constitutional Draft Conference will be organised in 2021 in collaboration with some, Ambazonia Coalition Team, ACT members.

While on January 3, 2021, Dabney Yerima said:
There will be prompt and definite response should Cameroon make attempts to host the CHAN in the southwest region. That they have written to participating countries, telling them of the danger that lies ahead.
New strategy to give the revolution fresh impetus with clear achievable goals to restore confidence and security- this will be based on four cardinal points such as DEFENSE-DIPLOMACY-FINANCE AND COMMUNICATION.
