(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon’s Prime Minister, Joseph Dion Ngute, chaired on May 7 in Yaoundé the Board of the national disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration committee (CNDDR).
According to the report by Magloire Séraphin Fouda, the Secretary General of the Prime Minister's Office (SG-PM), the results achieved in the demobilization and reintegration of ex-combatants of Boko Haram and armed groups in the North West and South West are “encouraging”.
“CNDDR regional centers in Buea, Bamenda and Mora are already operational and welcome, each at its own pace, the reintegrated who are immediately taken care of,” said the SG-PM who stressed the Prime Minister has prescribed the acceleration of the deployment of the CNDDR's regional centers.
Created on November 30, 2018, this committee's mission is to organize, supervise and manage those who wish to lay down their arms, particularly in the Far North of Cameroon and in the two Anglophone regions of the country (Northwest and Southwest) in crisis since October 2016. For President Paul Biya, these centers are “an honorable way out for these ex-combatants and a prospect for social reintegration.”
