George Ewane Appointed Spokesperson of National Dialogue: Some Reactions
Some have described him as a competent Journalist who is qualified and fit for the job as this facebook user puts it “Such a competent Journalist. He is well qualified for that post.” Others are however not quite happy and are rather critical about the appointment. This facebook user says ” I thought stakeholders of dialogue have that mandate to appoint who speaks for them. This is a monologue. I see failure in the air.”
Others think Dr. George Ewane who once compared Paul Biya to Jesus is not different from other members of the government and may not be the right man for the job.
The Major National Dialogue which will be chaired by Prime Minister Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute is expected to hold at the Yaounde Congress hall from Monday, October 30 to Friday, October 4, 2019.
Speaking to Cameroonians on September 10, President Paul Biya said “The dialogue will rally all the sons and daughters of our beloved and beautiful country, Cameroon, to reflect on values that are dear to us, namely: peace, security, national unity and progress.
” It will also focus on issues that can address the concerns of the population of the North-West and South-West Regions, as well as those of the other regions of our country such as bilingualism, cultural diversity and social cohesion, the reconstruction and development of conflict-affected areas, the return of refugees and displaced persons, the education and judicial system, decentralization and local development, the demobilization and reintegration of ex-combatants, the role of the diaspora in the country’s development, etc.”
