Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute has continued his visit to the Northwest region of Cameroon and in one of his meetings with the public on Wednesday 6 October, he highlighted the advantages that the two English-speaking regions of the country are enjoying.
He said the implementation of the ‘Special Status’ will provide the two regions with benefits that the other regions do not have.
“All regions in the State are the same, the second thing is equality. All regions have the same powers. However, in order to reconcile the people of the Northwest and the Southwest with the rest of the nation of Cameroon, the President created a special status” PM Dion Ngute told the public.
He went further “the President gave the Northwest and the Southwest in their regional assembly, a different form. They have full houses. The House of Delegates, Divisional Delegates and the House of Chiefs. Just to respond to what existed before”.
The Head of Government said the two troubled regions are privileged in domains like education, law, with development agencies, which others don’t have.
Joseph Dion Ngute made a fervent appeal to the people of the Northwest to acknowledge the reforms resulting from the Major National Dialogue and help save the region from violence. The Prime Minister is on a four-day visit to the Northwest region which began on Tuesday, 5 October.
