The National Executive Secretary of Cameroon Teachers Trade Union, CATTU, Wilfred Tassang has revealed that the government of Cameroon is presently in a desperate attempt to forcefully get schools to resume come Monday Jan 9.
He discloses that “Huge sums of money were dulled out to traditional rulers this Christmas through Governors to First class rulers, SDOs to Second class and DOs to Third class rulers.” However this cannot be verified.
Mr Wilfred Tassang has cautioned chiefs against taking such money to sell their consciences, he says “Whilst we caution any of our fathers who have taken this money of wickedness not to further desecrate the throne and their authority by taking the wrong side in this struggle, we appeal to all stakeholders not get give up at this point in time, when victory is so close.”
He added that “Those who are for us are more than those who are against us. That’s the only reason to be advanced for the fact the President’s speech leaked more than 3hrs to presentation. We have friends in very high places.”
According to Mr Tassang after government’s failure to force-start schools on the 9th, Yaounde will also be forced to face reality.
To him, the multiple secret visits to Bamenda Tuesday January 4, 2017 and this Wednesday by very highly placed and thought of members of government is another sign of desperation. That the government up to now has not affected nor announced any measures taken to solve either the problems raised by lawyers or teachers is indicative of the fact that they all run a great danger if they allow the strike to collapse. “If it does, we shall be greatly spited and the regime will not be under pressure to address these grievances.”
Mr Tassang has warned union leaders against taking of bribes that will undermine the strike, in his words “For union leaders and others at the forefront of this struggle, beware! It has been revealed in the spirit realms, the release of a huge amount of VOODOO money meant to maim the brain and cause heavy carnage. We hereby call on all to fear God and resist the enemy that he may flee from us.”
The firebrand Executive Secretary of Cameroon Teachers trade Union, Wilfred Tassang ended by appealing on fathers, mothers, and children, to remember that teachers and lawyers are not fighting for personal gains and also not to forget that their kids gave up their lives so that their siblings may have a brighter future; that scores of them are still under abduction.
Prime Minister Philemon yang has been announced for Bamenda this Wednesday January 4, 2017 but Teachers Trade Unionists say they have not been summoned to any meeting. It is also widely believed that higher Education Minister Prof. Jacques Fame Ndongo was in Kumba to do same exercise.
