Jude Waindim Bamenda City General Secretary hands speech of welcome

With security being a key challenge in Cameroon at the moment was cardinal on almost every presentation. Beginning with the Secretary General to the Bamenda City Council Jude Waindim on behalf of the Government Delegate there should be constant check at packing lots in schools, all major inlets and outlets should be properly manned and dust bins should be emptied regularly to avoid possible usage for hiding explosives. The Regional Delegate for Secondary Education on his part recommended proper control of entrances in unfenced schools, strict respect of opening and closing hours, increase the number of security guards and for boarding schools there should be proper control on visiting days with particular attention on parcels and letters, the closure of video clubs and bars around school premises amongst others. He further warned that parents should avoid giving parents to just anyone for transportation and that Parents Teachers Associations should play a key role in security maintenance.

In reaction Northwest Governor Adolf Lele Afrique assured the seemingly worried teachers and by extension the parents and students of government's commitment of keeping at bay the atrocities committed by the terrorist sect Book Haram.
Away from security the sector conference also provided an opportunity for the Regional Delegation to appreciate and encourage students and schools that performed well during last years end of course examinations with the award of certificates of recognition. 

Teachers absenteeism from school, refusal of young graduate to take up duty in schools where they are appointed, the continuous increase of PTA levies, non-supervision of aching by assigned staff amongst others were decried as vices that must be stopped. 
Governor Lele L'Afrique Tchoffo Deben
While pleading for the increase of running allowance for principals and related services, the repairs of the Bamenda-Mbouda stretch of road, improving of teachers working conditions amongst others, the conference in a special message declared their support for the president of the republic and prayed God to give him more wisdom.
