Press Hour 21-09-19 Anchor : Joe Kalabubse Panelists: Prof Dzekwa Willibroad Prof. Ngolle Ngolle, Prof. Nsoh Christopher & Mr. Stephen
All gave their appraisal of the president’s speech : They all welcomed the dialogue called and were worried on how the Anglophone problem will be resolved when those being consulted are those who never admitted the existence of the problem: for Stephen to him it was a conference not a dialogue called: prof Nsoh prays that the dialogue not be politicized referring to the conflicting parties which is the state and Anglophones but Ngolle Ngolle turned it to Anglophone and Francophones which was not what was raised :
Ngolle Ngolle refuting what Nsoh said referred to Somalia as a failed state while Cameroon is not one: As such the head of state with the mandate has the right to do anything as the convener: Ngolle is talking about Cameroon whole Nsoh thinks that all Anglophone front line leaders need to be consulted as well if we mean business: That Anglophones should meet and come out with their grievances than to be swallowed by others: Fir him the time is not enough but hopeful that all should come to find a solution:
Stephen reminded what the president said about the dialogue coming within the framework of the constitution which does not even permit us to go beyond decentralization for now: Dzegwa and Nsoh would have loved that cease fire and release of Anglophones take place for fairness to take place . Dzegwa is saying he sees a replay of Foumban as the time is too short : He refused that we do not know the problem as they move around talking to people who still do not know the problem even historians who can not lay hands to facts and figures as such the root cause of the problem is what should be handled as he repeats that many consulted do not admit the problem even traditional rulers who have been rejected by their people and more than 70% are Francophones that may crush the anglophone minority:
Ngolle took on role of political parties, who should not play the role like tripartite and Foumban from what he understood by what the president said: The major challenge for him are the participants who should understand that we must all prove that we are honorable citizens with integrity, honest intellectuals and no matter the differences, once the contributions come in, the convener will realize that Cameroonians means business while hoping that some will not make contributions that will tear us apart as we want to move forward together :
Dzegwa contested on the word of founding fires stating that what they decided were also violated : Scandy media summary
The serial killer linked to the deaths of over 15 girls in different hotels in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has been arrested after a CCTV footage of his last operation went viral.
The suspect was arrested yesterday Thursday September 19, by officers attached to the Rivers State Police Command. The 26-year old former militant from Buguma LGA of Rivers State, who is also a member of the Degbam cult group was arrested along East-West Road on his way to Uyo from Port Harcourt.
The Nigerian police in its tweet confirming his arrest, said an investigation to uncover motives of the killings is ongoing.
President Biya’s Campaign Team boasted over Crtv to have mobilized close to 40,000 youth to parade the streets of Yaoundé as support for the continuation of President Paul Biya come Oct 7 presidential elections. They were after the march past stranded in town.
Scandy Media later learnt that these youths came from all over the national Territory claiming they received phone calls to come to Yaoundé the Capital of La Rep for a CPDM meeting only to be brought, used and dumped after parading the streets.
Amongst those who came from other regions were Damarice Abendou all the way from Bamenda in the NWR, Diane Ndzie Nama from the South Region, Elysee Koroko from Yaoundé 2 Soa who expressed their dissatisfaction to the organizers who were nowhere to be found but got them stranded and abandoned.
Another category of group duped by the same CPDM campaign team were the motorbike riders also known as Okada boys. They were hired to ride throughout the city from the main town through Essos and Omnisport only for the organizers to disappear into thin air leaving them with no balance for the whole day.
This would mean that the exaggerated figures of 40,000 youths which were not up to 20,000 were tricked to come to Yaoundé for an urgent meeting only to be used to come to the streets and parade themselves as rallying behind President Paul Biya only to be abandoned on the streets after achieving their aim to get them on the camera for their media and candidate.
This should be a serious warning to those going to give their votes to the CPDM as sign of bad faith and that more of such disappointments await them after the elections. A word to a wise is enough.
Thank you Lord!! From Bishop Andrew of Mamfe Diocese
I just returned to Mamfe after spending 31 December and new year’s day visiting a great part of the flock of the diocese of Mamfe who are refugees in various places in Nigeria. I stopped in Nashua and Emana to see them and bring some supplies for New Year. Some of their stories are pathetic and the conditions under which they live is appalling. They are scattered all over the place and sleeping on verandas and open space like people without a Homeland. It was a great joy for shepherd and flock to be united again and the happiness of our visit almost moved us to tears.
The same was true of the remnant of people in an almost deserted Akwaya town. New year day was full of dancing and rejoicing. We had prayed for peace during the Mass and we all walked into 2018 full of hope. Hope for a more peaceful and just society and hope that our displaced brothers and sisters return soonest to their homes and feel again like human beings and citizens of this country.
