The government delegate to the Bamenda City Council (BCC) spoke at a press conference on 23 June in Douala.
Despite the lull, social unrest is still not complete in the capital of the North-West region. The government delegate to the BCC is well placed to know. It is for this reason, says La Nouvelle Expression (LNE) of 27 June, that during the meeting with journalists last Friday in Douala, Vincent Ndi Ndumu, called for resistance.
“I would like to call on the populations to resist the attacks of the troublemakers. This message is addressed not only to the people of the Northwest but also to anglophones in general, “he said. It is because the crisis that has lasted for 9 months, has completely paralyzed school in Bamenda. A situation encouraged by the ghost towns, which the delegate condemned.
“We denounce acts of vandalism, fires, violence and intimidation,” Ndi Ndumu said, noting that the students who have taken classes will certainly have their certificates; The opposite of those who gave in to intimidation.
The government delegate was optimistic about the way out of the crisis. At least, in his opinion, because families will have found that the ghost towns cost them excessively. He said the losses are worth several billion FCFA. Ndi Ndumu thinks that these agitations are initiated by some elements of the diaspora. Therefore, he asks the political parties, especially those of the opposition, NGOs and other associations to come together to stem the crisis.
