Anglophone Crisis: National Assembly Appeals For Continuous Dialogue
The eldest member of the House, Hon. Enow Tanjong recommends the acceleration of the decentralisation process as part of the solutions.
The eldest member of Cameroon’s National Assembly, Hon. Enow Tanjong on behalf of the House has called for all possible avenues to be explored to resolve the current crisis rocking the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon, recommending continuous dialogue and the acceleration of the decentralisation process. He spoke on March 13, 2017 as he chaired the opening plenary sitting of the March 2017 ordinary session of the Chamber which is run for now by the provisional bureau while waiting for the election of the permanent bureau.
Hon. Enow Tanjong said the Anglophone problem has for some time now triggered off social unrest in the North West and South West Regions. He condemned the arson that ravaged the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Bamenda on March 3, 2017 and the destruction of the administrative block of the Government High School Akwaya. He encouraged the countermove to normalise the situation as leaders from all strata of the society have joined the Head of State in appealing for dialogue and peace. He hailed in particular the recent creation by the Head of State, Paul Biya of a National Commission on the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism, which he further said was a platform of unity. «Like the Indomitable Lions, let us be united and target the same goal. Like the Indomitable Lions, Cameroonians are a team, with different and individual styles, but moving in total cohesion, » Hon. Enow Tanjong appealed.
