Political hentchmen of the ruling political party, Cameroon People Democratic Movement, CPDM, in Fako are bent on leaving no stone unturned to ensure that come September 4, all schools in the division are flooded with pupils and students set for the academic year 2017/2018.

 

Their aim, this reporter gathered is to cajole the students to return to school amid call for a complete boycott till all detained are released.

In a ceremony that took place recently in Limbe, educational materials composed of school bags, books, pens, math sets, rulers among others, were handed to all seven CPDM section presidents of Fako Division for onward distribution to students and pupils in their respective sectors.

Speaking, Honourable Emilia Lifaka, vice president at the national assembly who doubles as the CPDM divisional coordinator for Fako, urged all and sundry to put hands on deck and secure the future of their children by enrolling them for classes.

Lifaka added that, even though everyone might not be able to benefit from the largess of CPDM elites in Fako, the materials, will go a long way to subsidize the expenditure of parents and to get students back to school come September.

To her, children regarded as the leaders of tomorrow cannot take over from them without formal education. While frowning at those at the diaspora who cajole parents not to send their kids to school while theirs go to school, hon Lifaka acknowledge that though there exist a problem, pulling children out of school is not an effective strategy to solving the problem.

Earlier this week, an emergency meeting equally took place the conference hall of the limbe city council, convened by the newly appointed Senior Divisional Officer for Fako,
