Senator Ngam Unveils Coronavirus-Free Boyo Plan



In a bid to assuage the sufferings on the poor and almost outstretched populations of Cameroon's Boyo Division of the North West Region that has seen many lives shattered as a result of the four years prolonged Anglophone conflict, and now more compounded by the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, young humanist and open-hearted Senator Honore Ajuo Ngam, has forcefully stepped in to provide the much needed emergency assistance capable of barring the way for the pandemic not to enter and decimate these needy communities.

The ambitious and ready-for- implementation- robust plan consists of a whopping FCFA 3 millions subdivided into the following segments: FCFA 1 million to be distributed equally to the four Subdivisional Councils in Boyo to support their efforts in combating the pandemic; FCFA 1 million to support production and distribution of over 1000 face masks across the Division,  production and distribution of educational materials on COVID19,  the purchase and distribution of cartoons of laundry soap to promote hand washing in all the communities of Boyo, and the rest of the money, for the facilitation of a team of youths in communities to engage on a door-to-door sensitization and education campaign.

 In addition to this personal effort, is the Senator's donation of FCFA 500 000 through the Senate to the Special National Solidarity Fund where sons and daughters of Boyo Division would directly or indirectly benefit from, no matter where they are found in the national territory. 

The announced donation notwithstanding, a major aspect and staying power of young Senator Ngam Honore's rescue plan is to work with the traditional councils and authorities of all the fondoms that make up Boyo,and without any exception, to curate, analyze and mandate traditional practices that can locally contribute to barring the way for COVID19 in the fondoms. 

Given the fact that the Senator's plan aims at tackling the 'epidemic of misinformation' that has accompanied the outbreak of COVID19, especially in his native Boyo, the plan takes into consideration the translation of accurate information about the pandemic into various dialects in Boyo, and precisely through the innovative use of infographics. 

According to the project owner, the Free Boyo Plan would go a long way to organize  media and Social media Campaigns to counter fake news and hate speech, and monitor impacts of the pandemic in Boyo. It also aims at creating a systematized source of information especially about the gendered impacts of COVID19 as well as its impact on peace and security in the Division. Senator Honore's Plan will also be actively looking at practical tips on how-to-do-it-yourself-at-home strategies on how housewives could locally produce face masks for their families. 

Given that the outbreak of COVID19 has been further exacerbated by armed conflict, ongoing violence and humanitarian emergencies in the two English speaking regions, and given that travel and mobility restrictions have severely inhibited the delivery of essential services as well as humanitarian aid to numerous IDPs,  Senator Ngam is of the opinion every right thinking Cameroonian must show coronakindness to his/her less privileged neighbours.

It should be recalled that the SDF Senator's proactive plan of action falls squarely in line with the UN Secretary General's call for a robust communication plan by all stakeholders so as to tackle the 'epidemic of misinformation' that has accompanied the outbreak of COVID19, head on. It is for this reason that Ngam Honore is urging all his Boyo constituents wherever they find themselves, to vigorously adhere to the measures already outlined by government of Cameroon and WHO directives. He is the more  appreciative of the fact that it is because his constituents are following these directives that there is zero infection in Boyo till date. To this effect, and in his characteristic manner, he pays tribute to health personnel, traditional, religious, and administrative authorities and by extension, the people of Boyo Division for so far adhering to measures that have gone a long way to frustrate the pandemic from engulfing Boyo Division.

The Senator is not at his first experience when it comes to prompt and surgical interventions in his community. For two years running, he has provided varied forms of assistance to inhabitants of his native Boyo, including emergency humanitarian assistance to IDPs and other categories of undisplaced struggling Persons, and huge contributions toward the refurbishment of the Kom Royal palace.

It is Time for Reckoning, Ntumfor Nico Halle Says

IS IT TIME FOR RECKONING? 

 *By Barrister Nico Halle* . 

I am abundantly blessed to be living and enjoying toGod's love,  though sadly overwhelmed by the huge pockets of conflicts in the world causing deepened suffering. When the Almighty God created the world, he said everything He created was perfect. As a child growing up, I learned from my Father, who was a man of God, that everything God creates is PERFECT. That is without blemish. 

I also learned that because of the sin of disobedience and envy, Adam with the complicity of his wife Eve violated God's instructions and SIN came into the world. 

I equally learned that owing to God's love for humankind, He sent  prophets to preach repentance from all kinds of sins they were mired in. 

When the people still did not listen to the prophets, God sent His only begotten son to live with His people and preach repentance. This time God expected from His people Faith and belief in His Son Jesus Christ for eternal life. Jesus was and still remains the only WAY, TRUTH and LIFE to the Father- Eternity. 

Since the BOKO Haram insurgency showed its ugly head, and later the eruption of the Anglophone crisis, Cameroonians of goodwill have churned out an avalanche of soothing articles, and measures in the hope that tension would assuage. Thousands have brazenly perished, thousands have sought refuge in neighboring countries, thousands living in horrendous conditions in the bushes, thousands internally  displaced, public and private property vandalized, and or wantonly destroyed, the economy completely paralyzed etc etc

Calm is still impatiently awaited as the crisis rages on. All kinds  of prayers have been offered across the board with little or no effect. I have personally crisscrossed the two waring Regions several times to preach Love, Justice and Peace, with very little success. 
I have retreated, fasted, prayed and wept profusely, and continue to, hoping that God will answer my prayers. I know other Cameroonians of goodwill are doing same. I pray they should not stop until peace returns. 

Measures churned out by some stakeholders have born little or no fruits. All International Organizations and Institutions we count on are  just watching away since more than 3 years into the crisis. All they do is supplying, and or selling all kinds of weapons to the battle ground to whoever orders them as they do not care how many people are slaughtered. This  further drains the economy and renders the people more vulnerable. After all, the longer and complicated the crisis, the more  they maximize gains. Despicable. 

Yet and unfortunately, those considered a spiritual and or moral force who should globally constitute a soothing force to reckon with have apparently lost their bearing, hence demonstrating their compromised impotence. 

The bad news is, in addition to the many woes the world is grappling with, we now have two other major challenges producing gory images on the social media from across the globe. I am referring to the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 and hantavirus which are panicking just everyone on planet earth. Even the Super Powers , the 'ALMIGHTYS' are shaken. Huge mansions, plantations,  huge bank accounts, investments and absolute POWER cannot speak in the face of the scourge as it is no RESPECTER of status. The equalizer is very much around the corner. Watch out. 

It is however sad for some people to remain insensitive, or outrightly dismiss the Boko Haram incursion and the Anglophone crisis, because they care less or because they can hide away from the areas or Regions affected by the above savagery. Some have transformed the crisis into their stock in trade and are shamelessly making huge financial and political capital from it. Isn't it BLOOD, BLOOD money? 

If my bible knowledge is anything to go by, I make bold to support the greatest commandment in the world's GREATEST book- BIBLE- of which I take both scholarship and liberty to paraphrase: LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, MIND, STRENGTH AND SOUL, and LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF .

I do not know of any religion or culture in the world that does not preach or prophecy LOVE. God is LOVE. Love is the beginning and foundation of goodness for all.

When God created Man, He provided all that man needed to enjoy life fully. In His splendour, God provided, and as I do this simple little piece now, He still provides huge resources for all on earth. Unfortunately, a few  leaders and predators who pass for elected, appointed and anointed managers have greedily confiscated all for themselves, creating poverty, misery and unemployment, hence violence, conflict and war in the world. Terrible. 

The covenant God made with His people of old still applies to the world today. God always respects His part of the Covenant but man has never respected his. The Lord covenanted to protect and provide all our needs on condition that we honour, worship and obey Him, and only Him alone. 

Why the Boko Haram incursion, the Anglophone crisis, the coronavirus, poverty, unemployment, graft, embezzlement, bribery, corruption, rigging of elections, fraud, discrimination, hate speech, xenophobia, greed, inordinate, vaulting and unbridled quest for power by con men within all the components of society, bad blood, betrayal ,greed, pride, homosexuality, looting, plundering, you name them?

The absence of LOVE breeds all that precede, causing disaster, chaos, anarchy, wars, diseases, crisis,  conflict, suffering, pain, frustration, death etc. 

I fear that the current tumult in the world might be punishment God is inflicting on His people who have refused to stop sinning , seek His face and keep His commandments. Otherwise, how can one explain the sudden and dramatic outbreak within a short space of time all types of diseases and deadly viruses? We need to go on our knees and PRAY. 

God is LOVE. Whoever says he loves God but hates his brother is a hypocrite. Brother here is not only one's blood relative but any other person created by God. How can we love God whom we do not see, but hate our brother we see every day? Impossible indeed!

In a society were there is everything but LOVE, we can NEVER, NEVER have PEACE.
The rhetorical question one might be tempted to pose here is,
Is it possible to say one loves God and one's neighbors when one embezzels, loots and plunders what is meant for many? Can there be love when a person rigs/frauds  himself into any office in society? Does  preaching morning, afternoon and evening without love, honesty, humility and consideration for others have relevance? Speaking the language of man and of angels without love is an empty gong. Real love is found in 1st Corinthians 13: 1-13. 


From LOVE  the following emanate: Justice, Equity, the Rule of law, Truth, Integrity, Dignity, Transparency, Accountability, Respect for human rights and Liberties, patriotism, Care for others, Freedom, humility, goodness, kindness, Respect for others. 
These indispensable core spiritual and moral values stabilize, harmonize and make for a wherewithal platform where everyone feels loved and protected. 

God forbid the coronavirus, hantavirus and other diseases ravaging the world is our prayer. 
We however know that there will be TIME FOR RECKONING when Jesus makes His second  coming any time. The causes of death are varied and various and time uncertain. If Christ were to come now are we ready? As I write will I be ready? What would it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life? NOTHING 

The caveat here is that NOBODY is PERFECT. Hence no one qualifies to preach Perfection as such is the preserve of God the Father. Imperfection notwithstanding, we must abhor sin in all its forms.

We were unprepared when Boko Haram, Anglophone crisis, coronavirus, hantavirus etc etc erupted. Shall we be prepared to face God's judgment? 
Let us repent from our SINS now and seek God's face as we do not know when He comes. I salute and  bless anyone who after reading this simple little piece will adjust and prepare for His great COMING.

#Coronavirus: Ntumfor Nico Halle Prays for God's Intervention

A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR GOD'S IMMEDIATE INTERVENTION IN THE FACE OF THE UPSURGE OF THE CORONA VIRUS IN CAMEROON, AFRICA AND THE WORLD 
 *_BY Barrister NICO HALLE*_ 



Our merciful God and Father, you are the Alpha and Omega. You are omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. Father of our ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Creator of all good things on earth. How can we ever sufficiently acknowledge your unconditional love for us?

Everlasting Father, after your son King Solomon-son of King David had built a citadel of worship of your Holy name, and had organized feasts of gratitude for your love for him, you appeared to him in a dream and said you have heard his prayers and designated the building as your place of worship and sacrifice. 

And you said " if I shut up heaven so no rain falls, or if I command locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people" 
"IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME , SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, PRAY, SEEK, CRAVE, AND REQUIRE OF NECESSITY MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND". (see 11 CHRONICLES 7:14)

In sublime supplication, I truly know that I can on my knees cry to you and help to bring about your blessings upon my beloved country, why not the whole world. 

In humility I fervently pray on behalf of your people on earth who have been devastated by the ravaging coronavirus but whose only hope is YOU. I acknowledge the sinfulness of all of us here on earth. We have sinned, fallen short of your glory and honour and therefore not worthy to even call your Holy name. We confess our many sins and pray that anyone who may be doing evil in Cameroon and in the world will turn from their wicked ways. You have promised total forgiveness and healing to those Nations that come to you in humility and repentance. 

When we zoom the world, we are deeply weird and saddened by the unfathomable high level of moral and spiritual decadence. We are gripped by all kinds of sins: hate, bad blood, envy, jealousy ,fornication ,manipulation, favoritism, corruption, embezzlement, bribery, graft, untruth, deceit, hypocrisy, falsehood, fraud,cover up ,greed,  pride, demagoguery ,rigging, cartels, adultery, insanity,vanity, defamation ,smear campaign, forces of darkness, rape, homosexuality, gay marriage, rumour mongering, Satanism, idolatry, human rights abuse, killing, assassination, inequity, destruction, violence, war, conflict, animosity etc etc.

We sincerely confess the above sins and more and pray for your healing and forgiveness. 

Merciful Father, the World Health Organization (WHO) and governments of various countries have identified and instructed various and varied measures to halt further spread of the very dangerous coronavirus. The Cameroon government has equally instructed salutary measures to manage the scourge virus which we are advised to strictly implement. Some of your people don't seem to be convinced to be responsible in spite of all the education and information. 

Yet, O Lord God, we are told in your word that unless you our Father builds the house those who build labour in vain. You are the sole key to saving mankind at this moment of uncertainty. Come oh Father. 
Without your divine intervention therefore, all the measures put in place by man will come to naught.

Conscious of your unwavering and constant love for man,  which we have CONSTANTLY abused in our numerous sins, we still come before you with contrite heart and invite you to look down on your people with pity and heal their land.

We lie prostrate awaiting your sure intervention as soon as you WILL.

Gracious Lord, bless your people by just saying the WORD and we shall be HEALED.

Through the merits of your son Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Yodo Cameroon Empowers Youths in Tree Planting



Youth Development Organization-Yodo Cameroon, a youth result oriented organisation based in Nkambe, Donga Mantung has kickstarted an environmental education programme aimed at empowering youths in tree planting. Addressing students of the Binju Family Farm School, Fai Cassian Ndi, Coordinator of Yodo Cameroon, said planting the right tree at the right and the time nowadays is the greatest a child can offer to humanity. He equally emphasized that at time of climate crisis and climate emergency, any tree planted out of the forest is a precious move to mitigate the negative impact of climate change. For close to five hours, the over 30 students who came for the Study Visit were drilled on the various vegetative propagation techniques such as grafting, budding and marcoting. The students were equally lectured on the management of tree nurseries, how to plant trees and maintenances. They were equally introduced to various species of trees ranging from fruit trees to agroforestry trees as well as environment friendly trees. One of the activities that caught the admiration of teachers and students was that the plastic waste Management techniques. Students were shown how money was growing from plastic waste. " I can't believe that these whisky sachets could be used in growing trees, this is innovative and fantastic", one of the students remarked. 
It is worth mentioning that Yodo Cameroon runs one of the largest tree nurseries in the North West Region. The nursery equally trains youths who are interested in trees production as aborists. Besides that, Yodo is equally involved in working with farmers on how to set up backyard gardens as a reliable source of income and encourages organic farming. Mbungong Klinton Ndi, project manager says their dream is to work in collaboration with the ministry of environment, nature protection and sustainable development as well as the Ministry of Forestry to encourage schools environment clubs to be actors in the battle against climate change. " The easiest way to reach the communities is to pass through schools", he added. 
Before leaving the Director of Family Farm School, Adamu Clement expressed gratitude to the staff of Yodo-Cameroon for the efforts to instill youths into agroforestry activities. He promised that the school will continue to work in collaboration with Yodo Cameroon in order to build environment consciousness in youths. Kongso Roland one of the teachers who also accompanied the student said he was flattered by the innovative ideas that are being implemented at the nursery. " This is very innovative and am sure these students will leave here very satisfied and jam-packed with practical knowledge which will help them as future environmentalists and agriculturalists".
Worthy to note that the Family Farm School is one of the several educational institutions that has visited Yodo Cameroon tree nursery since January this year. The Family Farm School, it is worth mentioning is an initiative of the Catholic Church that trains youth in agriculture, Livestock, Forestry and Agroforestry. After three years, students based in Nkambe sent to St. Ritas College where they register for general certificate of education in their various feilds.

Ngwakongoh Lawrence Elected Mayor of Bafut

Ngwakongoh Lawrence

He is likely the youngest person ever in the North West to be elected mayor. Ngwakongoh Lawrence is a household name in the North West Region. The one-time North West President of ACDIC is one of the rare species of young leaders with character and conscience. This young dynamic civil Engineer is God fearing and he puts God ahead of everything he does. His attachment to the good Shepherd Orphanage in Bamenda made him one of the lavenders of all young men in development work. Prospects are high in Bafut that Ngwakongoh Lawrence will certainly accomplish what Lansi Abel left undone in that municipality. He will have to work relentlessly to open up farms to market roads to get to the production basins of lower Bafut and the hilly lands of Afotungobah. As young as he is, Lawrence will work with the newly elected Member of Parliament for Bafut/Tubah Agho Oliver to foster development efforts. Commentators are of the opinion that the peer could ignite hope in the youths and give more room for the young to express their frustrations in order to seek lasting solutions to their numerous problems. 

Alhadji Abdou Borno Is New Mayor for Ndu Council

Abdou Borno 

Yesterday, February 18, 2020 entered into history records as the day a new dawn for Ndu since the early 90s. Alhadji Abdou Borno Kamfon was yesterday elected to the post of Mayor of the Ndu council following a crushing defeat over SDF at the last February 9 Municipal elections. Abdou Borno, who doubles as CPDM section President is young and a dynamic leader whose trappings could be traced when he served as North West Islamic education secretary. He is the one councilors decided he will oversee the development of that municipality. The executive of the Ndu council are young and prospects are high at that they could ignite development in that municipality given the caliber of people that were elected. Above all, his savvy sassy knowledge in project management is an added asset that will boost his ability in implementing development projects. Borno takes over from Bunyui Emmanuel Nyugab alias Bugyi Bugy who also served in the same capacity as Mayor. He will be assisted in his duties by Njeta Kenneth who was elected 1st deputy mayor, Nsame Emmanuel 2nd deputy and two others. Here below is the full executive.

Musa Shey Nfor Elected Mayor

Musa Shey Nfor: The man of the moment
Musa Shey is the new mayor of Nkambe Council in Donga Mantung Division. He was elected on February 18, 2020 during an elective session. He replaces Ngabir Paul Bantar who has served in the same capacity since 2013. However, commentators say Musa Shey Nfor is the right person in the right place. He is a man who knack for prosperity could only be compared to the famous character, Farfre in the Mayor of Casterbright. Musa Shey Nfor is a development luminary. His trappings at the helm of any structure where he held an elective position have been excellent. His passion for agricultural infrastructure, makes him a lavender at this point that much is being talked about decentralization. He is the man of the moment and has the thoroughness that is very rare to find nowadays as he mixes and mingles with everyone. A man of the people many call him. 
Worthy to note that given that present development challenges of the municipality, during the session, the entire executive was renewed by over 90%. Madame Ajara Danjuma, formerly 4th Deputy mayor was elected 1st deputy mayor. She is the only old broom that was rewarded and moved up to the ladder for her dexterity to serve. Ngala Mbaya Tanyu was elected 2nd Deputy, Yembe Chrysantus Nsah came in as 3rd Deputy while Nformi Elvis Kwa was also elected 4th deputy mayor.

UNDP, AJA Train Community Leaders in Peacebuilding



The five-day workshop brought together 64 community leaders from the five sub divisions that make up Donga Mantung Division. The workshop was organized by African Justice for Peace Association in partnership with the United Nations Development Program. According to Abanda Marcel, Chief Executive Officer of AJA the project is aimed at promoting social and Economic Cohesion in Donga Mantung Division,
Harping on the partnership with UNDP, Abanda Marcel disclosed that the project has established and distributed 100 birth certificates to Internally Displaced Persons and the needy in society. He added that the project is expected to empower citizens and reinforce institutions in order to enhance social cohesion and peacebuilding.
Addressing participants during the opening ceremony, the Divisional Officer for Nkambe Central, Ngida Lawrence Che reminded stakeholders that peace doesn’t necessarily means the absence of war and expressed gratitude to UNDP and AJA for their contribution to peacebuilding in communities. He used the opportunity to call on participants to be ambassadors of peace in their various communities and villages after the training.
Although it is a challenging task but the 64 peacebuilders are expected to be innovative by leaving behind old habits and embrace socialization. This according to the trainers implies that they need to adopt an approach that is very different from the previous ways they were living in their villages or communities. Their  new approach, it should be recalled will consist of establishing good relationships with everyone, learning more about their communities or village’s history, and taking action to deal with conflict as a budding stage.
Participants were told that whenever a problem arises in their community, they should engage in dialogue with an open mind and the real will to listen to others. Only then will they be able to understand each other and build bridges. “Change cannot happen and peace cannot be established if people are unable to communicate with others; to listen to their experiences and views and show empathy, understanding and compassion”. Aristotle says that “it is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”. Implicitly, the prerequisite for a peacebuilder is to preach and practice tolerance and above all build a culture of tolerance in others. 
During the five days, participants were drilled on topics such as: defining conflicts, perspectives of conflict, observing conflict. Identifying conflict styles, practicing conflict analysis, responding to conflict, nonverbal conflict, characteristics of peacebuilders, peace builder in action, peacebuilders in action etc etc.
Talking to this reporter, the fon of Nkambe, HRH Fon Ibrahim Japfu Nfor, said he has learned new skills in conflict resolutions that will go a way to enable him solve problems whenever the need arises. He thanked UNDP and AJA for empowering them.
