Meeting on 28 April 2017, the 15 members of the Commission chaired by Peter Mafany Musonge selected seven proposals.
The National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism (NCPBM) makes seven proposals to be taken into consideration for the exit of the Anglophone crisis. Meeting on 28 April 2017 in Yaoundé, Center Region, the final communiqué of this meeting indicates the following. The 15 members of the NCPNM under the command of Peter Mafany Musonge wish to have “the authorization of the President of the Republic for mediation conducted by the Commission with a view to finding solutions to the socio-economic and educational crisis In the English-speaking Regions “. The NCPBM also wants to work on “the elaboration of concrete proposals (by the Commission) addressed to the Head of State on the social crisis in the English-speaking regions“. For this, the team of Peter Mafany Musonge intends to make a descent in the Regions of the Northwest of the Southwest.
It will be through this descent “touch the finger the realities and to bring appropriate solutions to the problems posed“. The Commission therefore intends to “identify the priorities and introspection in order to understand the causes of the malaise in the education sector currently under way in the two English-speaking regions of the country”. At their sitting Peter Mafany Musonge “prescribed a 10-day deadline for the members of the Commission to send concrete proposals to the General Secretariat” to put an end to the Anglophone crisis.
However, the daily Mutations in its edition of May 2, 2017 notes that the NCPBM does not take into account the political demands associated with the anglophone crisis which began in November 2016. We recall that there were also requests for a new distribution of Positions in the state apparatus. This was to contribute, according to the complainants, to a balance in the sharing of the national cake.
