There is an urgent need for solution to the humanitarian crisis in the regions affected by socio-political crisis in Cameroon

This point was made by Madam Leymah GBOWEE, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Head of the Technical Assessment Mission of the African Women Leaders Network.

Speaking during an audience at the Premises of the NCPBM on the 17th of April 2019, Madam Leymah GBOWEE, leading a delegation of 6 ladies, most of whom are top executives of the UN, affirmed that, the crisis has caused serious humanitarian consequences on the population in the affected regions; children are not going to school. Thus, there is the need for solution.

The Liberian Nobel Prize Winner, whose delegation had visited other gov’t structures emphasized that, they are not out to dictate on how Cameroon should handle the current humanitarian crisis, but to listen to State authorities, Civil Society Organizations and other persons who are willing to share ideas on possible ways of resolving the humanitarian crisis.

Discussions during the audience at the NCPBM were in this direction and the delegation was satisfied with the rich contributions tabled by the President of the NCPBM, H.E. Peter MAFANY MUSONGE, the Vice President OUMAROU DJIKA and the Secretary General, Dr. CHI ASAFOR Cornelius.

The visit was within the framework of the long-standing cooperation ties between Cameroon and the UN and follows a previous audience granted to the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the UN for Central Africa, Francois LOUNCENY FALL, by the President of the NCPBM, on the 07th of August 2018.
