Tumi-led Anglophone General Conference to gulp FCFA 34 million

Over FCFA 34 million will be needed to power through the Anglophone General Conference (AGC) which has been billed for November 21 to 22, 2018 in Buea, South West Region of Cameroon.
The conference has been convened by Anglophone clerics led by the Emeritus Archbishop of t Douala, Christian Cardinal Tumi, as the population of the North West and South Regions remain in wait for an end to the two years of socio-political instability that has engulfed the Regions.
Cardinal Tumi unveiled the budget of the conference during a planning meeting that held in Douala on Thursday, October 11. Besides Tumi, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) Rev Samuel Fonki Forba, the Imams of the North West and South West Regions and Dr Simon Munzu, Coordinator of the conference were part of the discussions.
Apart from unveiling the budget, the organisers have maintained that Buea, the historic capital of former German Cameroon will play host to the conference despite opposition from the likes of the Mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema Eusnge.
After unveiling the budget, the organisers of the conference aimed at working towards the peaceful resolution of the Anglophone Crisis charged the various committees set up to get to work.
However, the money budgeted is expected to be raised through different forms. It therefore means that the organisers will have to lobby hard to get financial support to host the conference.
The November date is the second since the idea emerged. When Tumi and co nursed the idea, they had previewed the meeting to hold in the month of September.
Yet political rhetoric, misinterpretation of the initiative and time constraints forced the them to reschedule the meeting.
