Yaounde (National Times)-Cameroon’s senate president, Marcel Niat Njifenji, Constitutional Successor of president Paul Biya has appealed for support from across the board to enhance measures already afoot to arrest the sociopolitical crisis in the North West and South West Regions.
Senator Niat made the appeal moments ago this Monday June 10 at Yaounde Conference Centre while opening the June session of Senate. The senate president summoned his peers and other stakeholders of goodwill to accompany president Biya and the entire government in restoring peace in the restive English-speaking Regions of the country.
The head of the Upper House of parliament condemned actions which he said have been engaged on the international scene to taint the image of Cameroon. Niat said, his country was ready to partner with friends of Cameroon towards shaping a great destiny for the country.
To the senate president, every action at the moment must be geared towards enhancing national unity, cohesion and integration.
The second-in-command in terms of state protocol saluted the outing of Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute and charged him to do more using his style to fast track dialogue and a return to normalcy.
Just like his counterpart of the National Assembly Cavaye Yeguie Djibril earlier on in the day, the senate boss’s address was similar in posture, content and political rhetoric.
Both outings today point to the government holding fast to its sovereignty in the face of maneuvers on the international scene particularly due to the escalating Anglophone crisis. Government believes in its ability to bring the situation under control contrary to the observation of international humanitarian organisations. Political pundits fear time is fast running out for the government to unilaterally handle the crisis if it dreams of doing so.
