While making a tour of some schools in Mundemba, Divisional headquarter of the Ndian Division Monday June 1, the Senior Divisional Officer, Laurence Forwang noticed that some primary and secondary school teachers were absent.

He asked the Divisional Delegate for basic and secondary education within his area of command to forward the names and matricule numbers of the said teachers, disclosing they will be sanctioned for disrespecting President Biya’s instructions.
