The remark is contained in a statement issued at the close of the 75th ordinary meeting of BAPEC held from the 17-22 of August 2023 in Kumba. While expressing gratitude to all stakeholders who made it possible for students and pupils to study without any interruption during the 2022/2023 academic year, the Bishops have called on all “communities to work together towards the reopening of their schools, so that our children are not left behind while the world advances.” 

Apart from the right to education, the Bishops also called for an end to the wanton killings, destruction of property, weaponized ethnic differences, the upsurge in examination malpractices in the country amongst others.
