Governors of the ten regions of Cameroon began meeting in the capital Yaounde on Monday morning ahead of the Presidential election billed for October 7.
Chaired by the Minister of Territorial Administration Paul Atanga Nji, this is the first Governors’ meeting for 2018 and is aimed at discussing the security as well as the upcoming Presidential election.
With the Presidential election just under a month, the governors will seek ways of holding the exercise in their various areas of jurisdiction in calm and serenity.
The security conditions in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon as well as the Far North and East Regions will be of major interest to the Governors.
The insecurity in the Anglophone regions has plunged doubts as to a hitch-free election in these regions and the Governors will look for means to counter separatists who have vowed to disrupt the election.
The meeting opened just a day after the Governor of the North West Region Adolphe Lele LAfrique imposed a dusk to dawn curfew in the region after separatists cut of Bamenda from the rest of Cameroon the previous night, destroying buses and killing at least two persons.
