Tassang Wilfred after meeting today in Bamenda
The Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Inter-ministerial Committee tasked with examining and proposing solutions to the concerns raised by the Anglophone Teachers’ Trade Unions, Professor GHOGOMU Paul MINGO,led a second inter-ministerial Committee meeting with Anglophone leaders today Thursday 12th January 2017 at the Governor’s Conference Hall, Bamenda, beginning at 10.00 am prompt.
The special session between the Ad Hoc Committee meeting ended again in total failure. The teachers staged a walked out after asking for the release of those still held in Kondengui.
CIR reports that the meeting was prolonged because Higher Education Minister, Fame Ndongo pleaded to have a session with the leaders and instead of opening a political discourse on the issues raised by the Consortium, the Biya acolyte proposed the sum of 30 million each for the leaders to suspend the strike.
The leaders at that point concerted and understood that the Yaoundé regime was not serious about solving the Anglophone problem but just playing around. The meeting was a desperate attempt by Fame Ndongo and his gang to get a possible answer back to Paul Biya. Minister Fame Ndongo during the deliberations pretended to be a very humble Beti Ewondo political elite and clamored for schools to resume in Southern Cameroons.
Wilfred Tassang who gave a short press briefing after the forum came to an abrupt end revealed that out of the 15 points tabled by the Consortium, they only succeeded in holding discussions on just 7. Tassang noted that the Francophone divide and rule tactics remains a delicacy within the Ad Hoc Committee members who announced that they intend to hold another meeting tomorrow only with the lawyers. Tassang told local and international press men and women that the all strike action remains. He added that all schools in Southern Cameroons will also remain closed.
