South West Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai has maintained that celebrations marking the 45th edition of Unity Day will hold hitch free in his region no matter pressure mounted by “extremists”.
The firebrand governor was speaking at the Conference hall of his office Wednesday May 17, 2017. He instructed his close collaborators to put all in place security wise to see into it that May 20 parade records success.
Mr Okalia Bilai said all is set to bring the people of the South West region together for the event on Saturday.
The Mayor of Buea, Patrick EKEMA Esunge who took part in the meeting told reporters that bringing people together is not a difficult task and that those who are calling for boycott of the activities will not succeed.
Messages have gone viral on social media and anonymous texts calling for a boycott of the event. The so called “extremists” base their argument on the ongoing crisis in the two English speaking regions which the government according to them has failed to resolve the issue.
