Regarding the issues rocking the country, the research group dubbed The Okwelians after carrying an inquiry on the population, outlines some proposals resolving those issues.
Be it because of the Covid-19 pandemic or the social-security issues rocking Cameroon, the country’s development has become problematic.
Besides these issues, there are other plagues like corruption and tribalism which are also obstacles to the emergence of a national consensus in Cameroon according to Jacques Jonathan Nyemb, president of the reflection group dubbed The Okwelians.
Taking the bull by the horn, The Okwelians group carried out a survey unto 1,275 cameroonians. From their research, they are presenting a renewed social pact for the nation aiming at reinventing a common and glorious future.
In the document, the think do tank group lays emphasis on the necessary preconditions for the emergence of a lasting national consensus. According to statistics, 70.97% of Cameroonians are asking for an inclusive dialogue while mutual forgiveness, the trial and writing of history are asked by 48.14% and 11.91% are for a dual nationality.
Regarding the necessity of strengthening the social relationships within the country, they indicate that 56.58% speak of educating citizens to the ecological transition while 53.60% are for a brainstorming on revalorizing ancestral practices that establish harmony between man and his environment.
Doing so, The Okwelians are proposing the creation of a national dialogue organ called ‘Truth and Dignity’. The institution will be relocated throughout Cameroon’s 10 regions and diaspora.
In addition, the creation of a national scientific commission for the writing of Cameroon’s national novel.
