Multiple calls for effective school resumption overshadowed this years Teachers Day celebration in Meme Division.

Speaking at the end of festivities at the Kumba City Council Grandstand, Secondary Education Delegate, Aghim Abunaw Obase, said there can be nothing more important than getting all students back to the classroom.

According to him, teachers are ready to go the extra Mile for children to return to school. Abunaw opined that they are appealing on bended knees for parents and guardians to send children to school. "Our appeal is that parents should see with our eyes the need to send children to school. {loadposition myposition}

We think that every other thing may be wrong but we should not do the last by killing the same children we think we are fighting for. We have taken advantage of the International Teachers Day to appeal to parents on bended knees to send their kids back to school," Abunaw stated.

The Delegate disclosed that pressure and threats on teachers and school administrators has diminished. The result he explained, is the increasing numBer of children that have returned to school in the last four weeks. To the Delegate, the momentum must be sustained such that cases of no school activities in the rural areas can be reversed.

The engineer cum Delegate denied reports that teachers marched to justify their salaries, considering the social tension in Anglophone Cameroon.

Newspaper Publisher Receives 7Million To Fake "SONEL Story" On Ambazonia President. http://cameroon-concord.com/local/newspaper-publisher-receives-7million-to-fake-sonel-story-on-ambazonia-president http://cameroon-concord.com/local/newspaper-publisher-receives-7million-to-fake-sonel-story-on-ambazonia-president Newspaper Publisher Receives 7Million To Fake

It was a complete scene of hugger-mugger at the Biteng, Yaounde residence of one of LR's Minister. National Telegraph, Cameroon's best Investigative Newspaper has gathered unparalleled facts of an argument that occurred between a Minister in Biya's government whose name has been withheld for professional reasons and the the Publisher of Reperes Newspaper.

According to our very reliable source, the newspaper had published on her front page that the President of Ambazonia, Sissiku Ayuk Tabe Julius embezzled 250million during his time at AES SONEL, present ENEO. Our source however hinted that the Publisher was rather corrupted by the said Minister.

According to reports, the newspaper had received over 7million as advance to do the sabotage job and was expected to receive a balance of 2.1million and a Toyota Yaris. National Telegraph gathered that it was only until Friday October 6, 2017 that the secret leaked after the Minister postponed the payment of the balance. It's even alleged that the Minister refused paying the balance on the grounds that what the Publisher had received is enough.

According to our source, a confrontation would later occur between the Publisher and the negotiator of the sabotage deal, with each blaming the other of double-crossing. As we write, the newspaper publisher out of frustration has warned the Minister of a rejoinder should his balance not be paid in full and within a week.

As Eric Tataw, Founding Director, Publisher and Editor-in-chief of the venerated National Telegraph, I call on Essoka Peter, President of the National Communication Council to investigate and sanction this act of Journalism Mumbo Jumbo.

It should be noted that Sissiku Ayuk Tabe Julius had dragged AES SONEL to court at the time for unlawful and arbitrary dismissal. Meanwhile, other professionals have condemned the act of the Publisher to have published a fake story just to sabotage Sissiku Ayuk Tabe Julius. It should be noted that Reperes Newspaper is originally owned by Richard Touna of blessed memory.

Cameroon: CBC Declares October 15 As National Day Of Mourning For Victims Of October 1 Homicide http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-cbc-declares-october-15-as-national-day-of-mourning-for-victims-of-october-1-homicide http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-cbc-declares-october-15-as-national-day-of-mourning-for-victims-of-october-1-homicide Cameroon: CBC Declares October 15 As National Day Of Mourning For Victims Of October 1 Homicide

The Executive President of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, Rev. Ncham Godwill Chiatoh, has set aside Sunday October 15 as a day for all Baptist Christians in Cameroon to mourn the Anglophones who were massacred by armed soldiers on Sunday October 1.

According a communique signed by Rev. Ncham Godwill, addressed to all Pastors of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, titled: “Communiqué on the Prevailing Socio-political Situation in Cameroon”, the Executive President also calls on all and sundry to continue praying and seeking the face of God in the midst of the turbulence.

The communiqué reads: “In the midst of the prevailing socio-political challenges plaguing our country, Cameroon, let us reaffirm our commitment to continue to pray and seek the face of God.

We have set the month of October for prayer and fasting but Sunday October 15, shall be a day of mourning in solidarity with those who have lost their loved ones.

On that day, all Christians are called upon to put on black for its symbolism.”{loadposition myposition}

The Pastor called on Christians to identify with the victims and families who have lost their loved ones, those who are suffering in pains, injury, arrests and other forms of torture, consequent on the crises, by praying for them and visiting them.

He urged Christians to unite and pray that a peace and reconciliation commission is put in place to diffuse the tension and deep seated bitterness that has built up during these crises and that the sovereign Lord would intervene in a manner that blesses his people and glorifies His Holy Name.

“We strongly denounce all forms of injustice, torture, violence and killing irrespective of who the perpetrators are. Based on our belief in the sanctity of life, no one has the right to take the life of another except God.

Stressing on the Love of God, Rev. Ncham Godwill quoted Romans 5:8; &1 John 4, saying that the hate propaganda between English and French speaking Cameroonians is from the pit of hell and must be shunned.

Here-iterated the call of the Cameroon Baptist Convention as articulated in its December 9, 2016 official statement that, “...open, meaningful and sincere dialogue...” without recourse to any subject as taboo. Such a dialogue, he went on, should address the root causes of the crises.

The communique reads further: “Pastors and ministers of the gospel within the Cameroon Baptist Convention are hereby reminded to continue to make the difference, being apostles and prophets who are both biblical and contextual in their preaching. In the midst of suspicion and victimization those who preach are to be wise, avoiding extemporaneous preaching and to preach from full scripts: that way, you take responsibility for what you preach without giving an opportunity to anyone to put words into your mouth.”

He concluded by calling on Christians to thank God for bringing ‘the powers that be’ to reasoning that they decided to throw-out the case that was pending in court against church leaders.{loadposition myposition2}

Biya prefers dialogue with Boko Haram than with Ambazonians http://cameroon-concord.com/local/biya-prefers-dialogue-with-boko-haram-than-with-ambazonians http://cameroon-concord.com/local/biya-prefers-dialogue-with-boko-haram-than-with-ambazonians Biya prefers dialogue with Boko Haram than with Ambazonians

Cameroon has been troubled by the Nigerian based terrorist group Boko Haram, for quite some time now, even though their disturbances have reduced. The government had tried everything possible to appease them, but they still went on wreaking havoc in the Northern part on Cameroon. According to government estimates, over 1200 Cameroonians, have been killed by the terrorist sect.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Some other unfortunate people who found themselves in the Northern Regions of Cameroon got kidnapped and their property looted.

The Cameroonian authorities have had no choice than to beg for negotiations with the Islamist group especially in cases of kidnappings. They had to even go as far as paying billions to the terrorist group for the release of captives they had taken hostage. This was indirectly financing the sect’s activities.

It is getting to a year since the Southern Cameroon crisis started in November 2016. All they wanted was that the government gives them a listening ear. It was dialogue they wanted, since the authorities did not seem to understand what they were demanding.

At that initial stage, nobody was talking about Ambazonia. Southern Cameroonians wanted peaceful and calm negotiations. Now that they have discovered that Biya and his collaborators do not want to cooperate, they want to take full control of their destinies.

Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix debunks rumours of threats on his life. http://cameroon-concord.com/local/barrister-agbor-nkongho-felix-debunks-rumours-of-threats-on-his-life http://cameroon-concord.com/local/barrister-agbor-nkongho-felix-debunks-rumours-of-threats-on-his-life Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix debunks rumours of threats on his life.

 

In a release signed and made public on Wednesday 27 September 2017, it has been made clear that, the rumours being spread about Agbor Balla’s life being threatened, are baseless.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The release reads:

“Over the past few days, we have read with dismay and utter disbelief baseless information on social media and on page 3 of The Guardian Post no. 1262 of Wednesday, September 27, alleging that Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor is under threats from persons the papers identified as "secessionists". The title ("I am under threats from Anglophone secessionists - Agbor Balla) and content are logically disconnected and we categorically denounce its veracity. We resolutely believe that it is proper for us to clarify the public.

We would like to inform as follows:

  1. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix has never granted an interview to any news outlet or press house since his release. His focus has been on working to release the detainees, listening to our people and reaching out to community leaders to forge sustainable solutions to the current crisis. If he grants any interview, the community will be notified.
  2. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix has not received any threats from any member of the our community since his release. On the contrary, he has enjoyed, with profound gratitude, the support of our community. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix believes anyone insinuating that members of this same community are threatening him is simply misguided. Our community is united and focused on addressing our common problem which has already been well articulated.

Wednesday, September 27, 2017.

  1. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix believes that the Press has a crucial role in any democracy. Since the start of our struggle, Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix has called upon the Press to exercise a high level of professionalism, accountability and responsible journalism.
  2. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix believes the right to free speech creates a corresponding responsibility to tolerate speech that runs contrary to his professed position on the need for dialogue to build a sustainable peace for future generations. We owe it to them and to generations before us. That said, it must promote the truth. Consequently, the public and members of the media are cautioned to create an environment that fosters a healthy exchange of ideas on how best we can resolve the current impasse and resume the necessary dialogue to seek durable solutions to the deep rooted grievances of our people.

The road to a sustainable peace will require that we commit ourselves to the difficult task at hand. Everyone will be required to build a lasting framework for peace.

Let us stay focused and united”.

The English speaking parts of the country have been considered for a long time, as low class people by the gangster regime. They have received all sorts of insults, which they do not even deserve. Crooked top state officials have been vomiting any thrash that came to their minds without the least consideration.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Issa Tchiroma said in November 2016 that, “Anglophones are an insignificant minority”

Okalia Bilai this September “if dogs continue to go to the streets to bite, they will meet security forces”.

Laurent Esso in January 2017 “when the consortium shall crumble, they shall come towards us begging”.

Atanga Nji Paul January 2017 “the common law will never be applicable in Cameroon”.

Jacque Fame Ndongo  “What are you going to do? Anglophones are like two cubes of sugar in a bucket of water”.

Amadou Ali “Anglophones can never control Cameroon”.

Paul Biya listens to all these insults and stays quiet, indirectly making Southern Cameroonians know that they are nothing before his eyes.
