Prime Minister Philemon Yang Appeals For Parents In Bamenda To Send Their Children To School

Prime Minister Philemon Yang has appealed for parents in the North West region to send their children to school.

In a desperate attempt to save the academic year, the head of government who began a 4 day working session in Bamenda Monday March 6th, says government is taking appropriate measures to solve the demands of Anglophone teachers. And it's unreasonable for pupils and students not to be in class.

Parents at the meeting raised the security of their kids lamenting that the presence of heavily armed men is scaring them from school . " children could be sacrificed in the midst of an uprising." A parent cried out.

Teachers also told the PM that they have been going to school but are welcomed with terrifying threats in their classes from unknown sources. The fear of abductions and outright deaths is looming around them. Some of them, they laments have gone underground for fear of been lynched by unidentified persons.

Representatives of denominational schools reacting to insinuations from government that they are supporting extremists groups made it clear to the Prime minister that they allowed students and pupils to go home because the atmosphere was unbearable for studies, insisting that they never at any point went political with their decision. Members of parliament and other opinion leaders also appealed to Philemon Yang to make the environment conducive for studies by restoring internet and demilitarizing the Anglophone regions.Philemon Yang is now in Bambili where he is having a crucial meeting with education stakeholders.
