Yaounde: South West/North West governors told to maintain deliberate silence on the Anglophone Crisis
Bernard Okalia Bilai, governor of the South West region and his counterpart Adolphe LELE L’AFRIQUE have maintained sealed lips over recent strike action orchestrated by Anglophone Teachers, Common Law Lawyers and later the population.
They told reporters in Yaoundé Tuesday December 20, 2016 during opening of the Second Semester Conference of governors that the government has asked them not to make any statement on the crisis which has been rocking the two regions for over two months now.
Several persons were killed in the strike action that suddenly went violent as police used live bullets on the people. Shops were closed, schools shutdown till further notice. Till date, no government official has taken responsibility for ordering shooting of people and brutality on University of Buea students. However Minister of Territorial administration and Decentralization, Rene Emmanuel Sadi has condemned the burning of national symbols like the flag which was allegedly burnt in Bamenda.
The theme of the second annual conference of governors focuses on “Administrative authorities, reforms on program budget and performance of the public administration.” Each of the ten regional governors will mount the rostrum to present the socioeconomic and political state of their regions by the end of the meeting.
