“Your Excellency, here I am on my knees once again making a tearful plea for you to consider granting those your children from the Anglophone regions, who are languishing in jail in Kondengui Prison, a general amnesty so that they can regain their freedom once again. Father of the nation and guarantor of the peace that reigns in our beautiful and united country, I am making this supplication with tears in my eyes because I know you can do it, as you have always done in the past.”
This is literally the long and short of what the International Peace Crusader and President of the General Assembly of the Cameroon Bar Association, Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle, said to this reporter, when I caught up with him on the phone, on Saturday, to talk about the prevailing situation in the NW and SW and his suggestions for a way forward.
In a rather laconic response, Ntumfor, as the iconic legal guru is fondly called by his contemporaries and admirers here, retorted that “I have said it before and will continue to pray that the Head of State, President Paul Biya gives a serious thought to my sustained supplication for him to use the powers vested in him not only by virtue of the high and exalted office which is his, but also by the Constitution of our country, and grant general amnesty to all those that have been arrested and jailed in connection to the ongoing crisis in North West and South West.”
