Speaking to the press after a working session with Senior Divisional Officers, Mayor, and other frontline actors in the Southwest Region, Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai said that the government has done practically everything possible to resolve the Anglophone Crisis and that it is now left to the local population to talk the Amba Fighters resisting the Government.
The purpose of the working session as told by Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai was to gather all living forces in the Southwest Region, other stakeholders, and local elected authorities to go to the grassroots population and talk to the population to convince their children who are still hanging on to their guns in resistance to the Government.
“The Regional Assembly created by the Government and the Special Status is capable of handling all that the population demanded. They can solve all the population’s worries because of the presence of special status commissioners who are equivalents of local Ministers, and a whole house of Chiefs as well,” he stated.
“So they no longer need to continue disturbing the peaceful life of the people and the development of this very important region. The state has done its part of the work, now they should go and talk to their sons,” he continued.
