I hope they succeed.Those on the other side are against the progress of the NW/SW,I hope they don't convince the cnadains to go but to the south.VICTORIA is a good examble.I'm keeping my fingers cross.Decentralization is the only way forward.

I hope La republiques corrupt groups of criminals dont drive this guys out. They dont like southern cameroonian progress and want to reduce our region to shacks. I am quite sure they will at the end frustrate this venture.

Ghost Man 4 Chine

Good initiative from the "hard working" anglophones especially the "Bamenda Man" as mockingly referred to. May the criminals sty out out of the plan;because they will surely want the resources go through the Ministries of Stealing and Underdevelopment; under the Supervision of the the "Prime Ghost" - King. He "ghostly" supervised the tarring of the "ringroad" an eye sore; an abuse of the Anglophones.
God bless the land.Land of PROMISES !!!!

The Northwest has competent staff all over the place. It is a good thing they are using a Canadian company for this study, they are a better alternative than the other imperialists. Here is another solution, road building is not rocket science, if there was true decentralisation, the taxes collected in the NW should be used to build roads. I can find bulldozers, front and back hoes in Canada for $6000CAD that is about a mere 3M cfa. These are used equipment left over from construction jobs. No new roads are built in Canada, the owners want to let them go cheap. Even sons of Northwest in diaspora can purchase and donate this equipment. Bamenda has a talented pool of mechanics, who can be trained to maintain these equipment. They are a lot of cameroonian civil engineers and surveyors, buiding a road is no big deal. Since West Cameroon is so marginalized, a better idea will be to look at S Korea ship building inds. try to do the same in Limbe which is the most natural deep sea port in W Africa. Build a six lane divided freeway from the farthest north of the NW down through Mamfe, Kumba, Muyuka to Limbe. Now establish a textile factory in Bamenda, commercial agriculture in SW like CDC did, but this time run for the people of SW. Goods will flow from up north to the port in Limbe in 4 to 5hours, and with this economic activity other industries like tourism take off.
On a side point those of you who believe that Cameroon can be remedied should heed what the french and american ambassadors are saying. Concentrate on proper voter registration, keep the population informed about what is happening to the economy. Public vertical pressure on corruption and corrupt individuals, even ridiculing them in public. Look at Indonesia, Hungary. This might even be a better time for ghost towns, we have more evidence of corruption and the world knows our plight. We just have to appply more pressure to drive these thieves out before we bleed to death.
