Member of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism, who officially took office yesterday, David Abouem A Tchoyi clarified the work of the Commission.

They were installed on April 27, 2017 by Prime Minister (PM) Philemon Yang. The members of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism officially took office. Approached by the daily Le Jour, 28 April 2017, David Abouem A Tchoyi, one of the members of the Commission, spoke of the work of the Commission. “The President has signed a decree setting out our powers, and now there is the law and the spirit of the law, and each one of us should indicate how he understands the spirit of the text”. David Abouem said: “We have a road map set by the decree of the President of the Republic. The first task is to understand the full extent and Then on the basis of the program of action that we are going to put in place, each one intervenes according to his/her sensitivity and according to the problems on the agenda. What he/she thinks, we exchange and then we move towards a common position “.

On the fact that the Commission remains an advisory body, David Abouem, who served as Secretary-General of the Prime Minister’s Office, said “having the habit of these commissions, I can tell you that we sat on a similar commission in 1979 We made a number of recommendations, with medium or long-term application for the others, and President Ahidjo applied all of them, at least, those that were of immediate and short-term application since If you take, for example, the English-speaking problem, if we had people who had reflected on the problem of justice, on the problem of teachers and who had put proposals on the office of the President of the Republic in October when the crisis began, I am sure that the situation would not have evolved.
