By Chifu Edward - Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, the pacifist and illustrious son of the region, has called on all and sundry to reserve a befitting reception for the Head of State, President Paul Biya on his visit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Armed Forces in Bamenda. He said Biya deserves kudos for the relative peace Cameroon enjoys in spite of minor social hitches which are but normal for any emerging economy.
He averred that if President Biya was not a shrewd and peace-loving Head of State, Cameroon and Nigeria would have had bloody confrontation over the Bakassi Peninsular. He also hailed the former president of Nigeria Ulosogun Abasanjo for pacifism. He was speaking at the Presbyterian Church centre.
Fight against all forms of societal ills
Beside that, he challenged The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) National Committee for Men’s Work (NATCOM) under over-lordship corroborate Cameroon government vigorously fight against all forms of societal ills, election rigging, corruption, embezzlement and unemployment in the country. This was arrived at during the 2010 PCC NATCOM meeting in Bamenda from Wednesday August 25.
He regretted some of his members
I the NATCOM meeting which has as theme; In Times of Crisis Seek God’s Power – Daniel 2:20-22, the CMF National president, Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, emphasized that government has been fighting corruption alone “…And if the church is the conscience of the society, it ought to champion the fight against corruption, bribery, election rigging, embezzlement and unemployment”. He regretted that some of his CMF members were very involved in these societal ills and so the fight against these ills and should holistic for them to be nib in the bud.
NATCOM, Ntumfor said, will mobilize CMF and other facets of the PCC to fight the societal ills “So that tomorrow we will have a legacy to hand to our children”. It beat his imagination that Cameroon which is known by all as the Switzerland of Africa with all natural resources and intellectuals was plugged by poverty and misery.
Ntumfor promised that CMF and the PCC will be involved and do all to ensure that peace reigns before, during and after the occasion. “We will wage a war against anybody who shall attempt to disrupt that special occasion”. He lauded the army who managed the Bakassi crisis in such a way that it did not escalated into a full-blown war which should have led to the lost of lives and property.
