Religious Knowledge should be a Prerequisite for Public Office Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle Says

The National Committee for men’s Work of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon-PCC has launched an advocacy project to lobby for government to enact a law that recognizes religious diplomas as a prerequisite for any public examination and the public office in Cameroon.
This project that is igniting public recognition and applause is coming at the heels of a successful war against corruption in the mainstream churches in Cameroon. Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle who was the leading light in the fight against corruption in mainstream churches has declared that the fight against corruption, embezzlement and moral decadence must be done by someone who is corruption free. “The Church is not void of corruption” Ntumfor Nico Halle told the Bamenda population last September 1, 2012.
According to the National President of Christian Men Fellowship (CMF) a successful fight against corrupt practices and moral decadence can only be through the Words of God. He reechoed that the problem in Cameroon is not President Paul Biya but the people of Cameroon. Gaining his inspiration from 2 Corinthians 7: 14 Ntumfor Nico Halle said that the objective of this advocacy and lobbying project is to cleanse society of immorality that has besieged the lives of Cameroonians.  CMF President decried that Holy Bible which is the source of wisdom for an emerging society has been relegated to the backseat and added that it has been thrown to the dogs. Quoting from the Book of 2 Corinthians 7:14, Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle reiterated the fact that Cameroonians need to know the words of God. The project to combat moral decadence and corruption he noted should pass through the classroom.

In an exclusive interview with The Eye in Bamenda, Ntumfor Nico Halle said the church is relying on Government to incorporate religious knowledge into school curriculums from primary to university. He said anyone groomed in the fear of the Lord is bound to differentiate what is public and what is private.  
Harping on the importance of the programme, he said spirituality should not be an intellectual exercise or a philosophy “a way of life to change society for good moral upbringing”.  Recognizing religious diplomas Ntumfor Nico Halle will ignite Cameroonians who are being appointed into offices to have good moral background in the fear of God. He lamented that Cameroon is suffering from a deeply rooted phenomenon which has diverted their minds from the fear of the Lord to the Fear of money, fear of politics, fear of property and fear of man. He said it is now the responsibility of MPs to make show that this project to cleanse society in passed in Parliament because any MP that votes against such a law should be considered as being in a state of sin.
