Moderator Rt.Rev. Fonki Samuel Forba prescribes action on dialogue points agreed between the State and teachers trade union leaders
The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) has appealed for reason from all stakeholders in the saga rocking the English subsystem of education. The appeal stresses the need for necessary measures for schools to effectively reopen and ghost town called off as a matter of urgency.
It is against this backdrop that the moderator of the PCC, the Rt. Rev Fonki Samuel Forba has appealed to the conscience of all stakeholders to give children a chance to exercise their rights to education. Talking to the press in Bamenda on January 28, 2017 he appealled to the state to act on dialogue points recently agreed with the teachers trade union leaders, more open dialogue and goodwill. The PCC moderator further appealed for those detained in connection with crimes within this period to be tried in regions where they were arrested.
Meanwhile, a PCC release of January 27th 2017 salutes President Paul Biya’s creation of the National Commission on Bilingualism and Multiculturalism as a vehicle to bring about national and social cohesion and to create a climate of mutual understanding and patriotism among Cameroonians. Rt. Rev Fonki Samuel Forba has also stated the preparedness of the PCC to play a front role to break the stalemate that is not helping matters for the Anglophone sub system of education. He said as a proprietor and church with a mission to offer quality education and upgrade the moral and ethical values of children, the PCC cannot be happy that schools have not resumed in the North West and South West Regions. He also committed the problems to God for a quick solution and prays that the Internet network be reinstated wherever it has been embargoed to restore trust and help the nation’s emerging economy.
