The gift of Cameroonians residing in Britain was received yesterday Monday July 03, 2017 in Yaoundé by Jules Doret Ndongo, Minister delegated to the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization (MINATD).
Less than a week after the first Forum dedicated to the Cameroonian Diaspora organized in Yaoundé on 28-30 June 2017 by the government, the Cameroonian diaspora of Great Britain stood out by handing over to the public authorities a sum of ten million of FCFA to support the victims of the exactions of Boko haram and the soldiers engaged in the war against the Islamist sect of Nigerian origin.
The ceremony for handing over this war effort against Boko Haram took place yesterday Monday (July 03rd) at MINATD in Yaoundé and presided over by Jules Doret Ndongo, Minister delegated to the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization.
“This gesture goes straight to our hearts and is consistent with all that the nation has done in its time. Today is the community of Great Britain, we say thanks on behalf of the President of the Republic, on behalf of our defense forces. This gesture is welcome and if it has any other, we will always be willing to welcome and appreciate it at its true value “reacted to the mic of Crtv-Radio, Jules Doret Ndongo.
It is already three years since the Head of State, Paul Biya, officially declared war on Boko haram. But it is for two years that Cameroonians from here and elsewhere have embarked on an enormous surge of solidarity to help the soldiers and victims of the exactions of the terrorists of Boko haram.
