Anglophone Crisis: how Atanga Nji grants the affected families assistance kit

This is what emerges from the press briefing given today in Yaounde, by Paul Atanga Nji, the Minister of Territorial Administration (Minat), on the assessment of the emergency humanitarian plan instituted by the Head of State, following the ongoing political-military crisis in the North West and South West regions.

Eight months after its launch, Paul Atanga Nji Minat was in front of the press today to take stock of the emergency humanitarian aid operation on the Anglophone crisis. According to the head of the Cameroonian territorial and general coordinator of the project, 75,000 internally displaced families have already received the aid ordered by the President of the Republic. For Paul Atanga Nji, Cameroon has 152 internally displaced families, because of the Anglophone crisis. Families, according to him, are distributed mainly in the North-West and South-West regions, and eight thousand in the Littoral, West and Central regions.

And it is in a report of 58 pages, that the Ministry of the Territorial Administration, recorded the assessment on the management of the plan of emergency humanitarian whose cost had been estimated at nearly 13 billion francs CFA. Paul Atanga Nji did not fail to criticize these NGOs, which according to him, "inflate the number of internally displaced families to 400 thousand, to make the situation of North-West and South-West, a goodwill."

And the Minat has not hesitated to demonstrate what it considers a trick to obtain a lot of funds from international institutions. "When these NGOs advance the false figure of 400 thousand internally displaced families, that corresponds to 400 million Euros. These figures put forward by NGOs, are fake news aimed at encouraging external intervention on Cameroon, and thus trampling our sovereignty, "did not fail to observe the Minat.

Regarding the various partners of Cameroon, Paul Atanga Nji said that "they are welcome, but their assistance must be provided according to the needs expressed by the government, which has reliable information on the humanitarian situation arising from the Anglophone crisis ". The Minat has, among other things, indicated that "the project of emergency humanitarian assistance, is personally attended by the President of the Republic Paul Biya. So it's not a game. We've already made 60 trips to the Northwest and Southwest regions to distribute donations for emergency humanitarian aid. "

The press briefing of Pau Atanga Nji the Minat, ended with a descent on the sites of Yaoundé sheltering the internally displaced families of the English crisis.
