Anglophone Crisis: Sen. Achidi, Dingha Weighs In, Calls for School Resumption

From L to R Hon. Enwe, Sen. Achidi and Digha

Both men were accompanied by Hon. Enwe Francis of Momo West at a press gathering this afternoon at the Ayaba Hotel Bamenda to ask the media in the region to continue to sensitize the population to shun fear and send their children back to school. The call comes after schools failed to effectively kick off in the Northwest region due to the ongoing Anglophone crisis.

Senator Simon Achidi Achu of Mezam and his colleague Dingha Banyi Ignatius of Ngoketunja condemned in strong terms the ghost town that has completely paralysed economic activities in the region and the rampant burning of schools and government structures. They blamed the crisis on people “who do not have a focus and the interest of the population at heart”

Sen. Achidi believes the population is falling prey to these individuals who are using foul and dictatorial language to create a new state and are not ready to accommodate different sheds of opinion that is contrary to theirs

Hon . Enwe said there will be no secession or break up of Cameroon even in the next 20 years to come and fears that if we continue like this, we may degenerate into total chaos. He said we have entered the second level crisis situation that could further degenerate and we should do everything to avoid entering the third stage that maybe unpleasant.

Hon. Enwe left fears for the worst if current stalemate continues

Hon. Enwe admitted that some individuals had used the crisis to make personal gains, feeding the Head of State with lies. But following a letter he sent to the presidency and subsequent discussions in parliament, the Head of State decided to order the release and discontinuance of proceedings at the Yaoundé Military Tribunal against some of them.  They described this as a step towards resolving the stalemate by the president and a response to the cries of the affected population

Even if the release was selective they argue,  the population should send their children to school, teachers should regained the classroom and lawyers should return to court and they  the MPs and Senators would do their job.
