The MP from Donga Mantung has once again reaffirmed his commitment to making sure that schools effectively go on in all parts of Donga Mantung Division and the North West Region at large.
In an interview with the state broadcaster, CRTV, he said he is ready to take bullets for his cause of championing schools to resume in the Northwest Region.
Talking about his mobilization of the people of Nkambe, he said he had been there five days before school resumption and the outing was massive except for some areas in the suburbs. He however says these areas turned up for school massively too after he visited them.
“Schools were effectively going on in Nkambe. But there were some suburbs where schools were not going on. So, I had to move into those areas and had a 98% success,” he boasted.
The MP also said the issue of school resumption in Donga Mantung Division has never relied on neither the decision of the government nor the separatist fighters, but the freewill and determination of the people.
“It is not about the government or the separatists calling on people to go back to school. The parents have decided and nobody is going to stop them… when I went to Nkambe, I was ready for anything. I was ready to take bullets for children to go to school…,” he said.
Hon. Gerard Ngala said due to the socio-political problem, the people of Donga Mantung cannot access Bamenda through Kumbo because the roads have been blocked. But he said plans have been laid out by the government for an alternative road to be constructed between Yomba and Donga Mantung.
