By closing the first parliamentary session of the year on April 11, 2017, the Speaker of the National Assembly urged the government to work to avoid social crises.
It’s good to resolve crises, but it’s even better to avoid them. The message was passed by Cavaye Yeguié Djibril on Tuesday at the National Assembly. In closing the first parliamentary session of the current year, the President of the Lower House questioned the government.
“To govern is to foresee and I would like to add that it is also knowing how to anticipate events,” he said.
The CPDM MP for the Mayo-Sava (Far North) referred to the crises that have and continue to shake the country. Notably the anglophone crisis which is already almost six months and the recent manifestation of so-called indignant teachers who claimed 60 months of wage arrears. While welcoming the measures adopted by the Head of State on this subject and improving the treatment of health personnel, the NAP urged the government to resolve the problems upstream in order to avoid setting up Cameroon in a cycle of demands.
He also welcomed the noticeable easing in anglophone regions undergoing an unprecedented crisis.
“As we close our work, I would like to congratulate ourselves on the signs of appeasement we see in the western and northwest regions. Personally, I believe in the virtues of dialogue. Once again, I encourage everyone to use this dialogue … I remain convinced that consensual and definitive solutions will be found, “said the third personality of the country, optimistic.
Reacting at the end of the hemicycle, the Hon. Joshua Osih, vice-president of the SDF, affirmed that it is the government that must find the solution for appeasement.
“Everyone wants appeasement, but the executive must take responsibility to get this appeasement,” he said.
