Bamenda School Reopening: Principals, PTA Chairpersons Sensitised
Inhabitants are in a wait and see attitude
Inhabitants of the North West Region spent the weekend sensitised about the efforts by government to ensure that schools imperatively reopen for the second term on Monday, January 23, 2017. Echoes from the Divisions indicate that local administrators have been encouraging teachers and parents to ensure that pupils and students return to school.
The North West Regional Delegate of Secondary Education, Moh Bakwed Victor told Cameroon Tribune that a circular letter of the Minister of Secondary Education to the effect that schools should reopen has been served all principals and PTA chairpersons in the Region. Announcements from the administration stressing measures to ensure the security of people and property are regular on radio stations.
It was business as usual in the streets of Bamenda during the weekend with taxis and commercial motorcycles on duty. Inhabitants went about their activities freely with security forces at major road junctions watching over. Most banks, financial institutions and mobile telephone houses operated at half gear. The weeklong blackout of internet network in Bamenda has not helped matters.
In the quarters, some fear repercussions from unidentified youths threatening action against whoever releases children to school. In short, it is wait and see attitude in Bamenda.
