Children’s education is every Nation’s pride

Ni John Fru Ndi: Schools should resume

By Michael Ndi
The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) Ni John Fru Ndi has insisted that schools must resumed in September 2017 in the two English speaking Regions of Cameroon. The SDF Chairman Fru Ndi, has therefore called on Anglophones to send their children to school come 2017/2018 academic year, saying that education is the foundation of every success story.
He lashed out at those in the Diaspora who are allowing their children to go to school abroad, yet refusing that Cameroonians of the North West and South West Regions should not send their children to school.
Fru Ndi equally questioned why Cameroonians of the South West and North West are obeying ghost towns while those in the Diaspora are freely doing their businesses and educating themselves.
He warned that security cameras have been mounted in all North West streets as measures to track down delinquents and law breakers.
Some North West elite who spoke to The Star, thanked the government and said the cameras will check people causing havoc in town. The mounting of the security cameras will also ensure children go to school without fear because any attack will be recorded and the culprits apprehended.
They recalled the sad case of one Chantal Anyere of GBHS Down Town Bamenda who was butchered when she went to write examination. Fortunately, she recovered after she was rushed to Mbingo Hospital and treated of the severe wounds inflicted on her.
Another elite Victor Cha said with the security cameras planted all over the town, any intractable element will be caught as fast as possible.
“Imagine how a Brasseries du Cameroun truck was burnt last week bringing to three the number of trucks burnt by hoodlums in recent times.”
Concerning the reopening of schools, even before the National Chairman of the SDF made the declaration, the National Chairman of the National Union of Democracy and Progress (NUDP) H.E. Bello Bouba Maigari had re-echoed the need for children to go to school because their future is predicated on sound education.
He warned that children should not be used to settle historical, political and cultural differences. He prescribed dialogue and honesty as the best option for peace in Cameroon.
The National Chairman Bello Bouba agreed there is an Anglophone problem which needed to be resolved peacefully and not through violence that will cause innocent families pains and unforgotten nightmares.
The Catholics, Presbyterians and the Baptists have already sent announcements to various Churches ordering registration and admission of pupils and students in the next academic year, come September 2017.
As we went to press, some government teachers told The Star that they will be no school until all Anglophone detainees held in Yaounde detention camps are released.
Another group of teachers said they have had enough of no school with their children suffering at home and engaging in dangerous activities and vowed they will return to school in September, arguing that they cannot be earning salaries without work.
From every indication, it is crystal clear that schools will resume in September 2017.
