Government Tries To Prevent Un Intervention," Says Bernard Ouandji On Government Emergency Plan


CIN| Bernard Ouandji also a politician expressed in the columns of 25 June 2018, the daily Mutations on the humanitarian assistance plan for the affected populations of the North-West and South-West regions. The economist first finds that the generosity of the Government is sudden. Secondly, she is suspicious. " In truth, the Government is trying to prevent possible UN intervention. On the merits, the Government can be suspected of anticipating the humanitarian initiative that the UN Security Council is considering in relation to the situation prevailing in the English-speaking areas. In English we say "to preempt". This is a way of saying to the UN: "Do not come with your blue helmets, we are already doing what you intend to do, " he says.

Regarding the form of this humanitarian assistance plan, the cost of which is estimated at more than 12 billion CFA francs, Bernard Ouandji indicates that it is not in conformity with the rules of art in terms of formulating a plan for humanitarian emergency. " Personally, I participated in this emergency plan exercise during my service with the UN in countries at war, and participated in the appeal for funds in Geneva; then formulated plans for recovery and reconstruction. To tell you that the donors follow a methodology that is not seen in the Humanitarian Emergency Plan published by the CPDM Government , "says the economist.

Still on the form of the document, he adds " the first half of the document is nothing more than the indictment of the Military Tribunal against terrorists, with over eleven pages a long litany of crimes and schools burned by the cause, in the process, the brutality blamed on the government forces is zapped. This first part is useless for mobilizing resources; an introduction of two pages would have been enough, with the aim of locating the areas of claims. It's all not to incriminate one party and clear the other .
