Paul Biya’s Emergency Humanitarian Plan: local government Councils “obliged” to contribute at least FCFA 104.000.000

A total sum of 12.7 Billion FCFA is expected to be raised to bring back life to the North West and South West regions.

Few days after the president of the Republic of Cameroon, Paul Biya announced the creation of a national solidarity plan for Anglophone refugees and the internally displaced in the North West and South West regions, the government has worked out and presented the plan.

The plan presented on Wednesday June 20, 2018 gives an overview of the action earmarked by the government to assist the displaced and suffering population including refugees from the regions based mostly in neighboring Nigeria.

According to the plan, the government needs to raise the sum of 12.7 Billion FCFA to fund the various activities and Prime Minister Philemon Yang indicated that the amount will come from the state budget, state personalities, Business persons and international partners of the country.

The collection exercise was launched one day after on Thursday June 21, 2018 at the municipal circle in the nation’s capital, Yaounde.

During the launching the organizing committee presented minimum amounts that would be contributed by ministers, governors, parliamentarians, general managers and board chairpersons, members of special commissions, government delegates and mayors’

Government delegates from the provisions are supposed to contribute at least one million (FCFA 1.000.000) each while municipal mayors shall each contribute two hundred and fifty thousands (FCFA 250.000.)

There are 347 local government councils in Cameroon consisting of 360 municipal councils and 14 city councils. Consequently and judging from their basic amounts, a minimum amount of FCFA 104.000.000 is expected to come from local government councils.

The money is to be used to reconstruct properties destroyed in the affected councils of the North West and South west regions as a result of the Anglophone crisis.

The management of the plan has been bestowed on the newly created minister of Territorial administration, Paul Atanga Nji who shall oversee collection of the funds and disbursement to the different actions earmarked to arrest the situation.

The following state personalities have been chosen as members of the fundraising committee;

Chairman:      Senator Nfor Tabe Tando

Members:       H.E GHOGHOMU Paul Mingo

H.E FUH Calistus Gentry
