Cameroon’s Prime Minister Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute is expected in Bamenda, Northwest Region tomorrow on a Peace Mission. Like his visit to Buea, the PM is expected to discuss peace with stakeholders.
The three-day visit begins tomorrow, October 5, 2021, with the PM’s arrival in Bamenda. On the second day of his visit, PM Ngute will meet with the population at Commercial Avenue, then proceed with a working session with stakeholders of the Boyo Division on the follow up of the recommendations of the Major National Dialogue.
Thereafter, on day three he will meet with heads of other Divisions of the North West Region, and with representatives of the Drivers syndicate, trade unions, economic operators, and youth groups.
Ahead of the visit, English speaking separatists have imposed a three-day lockdown in the North West Region, according to reports.
The Lockdown which begins on Tuesday, October 5, the day of the PM’s arrival, until October 8, is a message of disapproval from the separatists in the region. They say the resolutions of the Major National Dialogue cannot solve the armed conflict.
The Prime Minister’s visit comes 2 weeks after a similar one to the South West Region. While in Buea, Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute urged media houses to practice constructive journalism. To him the armed conflict is being exacerbated by a negative press.
