The National Coordinator of the Centres for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration of ex-combatants (DDRC), Fai Yengo Francis has laid the foundation stone for the construction of the South West regional centre.
The ceremony to lay the foundation stone took place Saturday March 20 in Misselele village in Tiko Subdivision, Fako Division.
The multipurpose centre evaluated at about FCFA 1.5 billion will take nine months to be on fit according to the NDDRC technical partner in charge of executing the project.
It will host a building for workshops, dormitories for personnel, sports infrastructure including a football pitch, a dispensary, a refectory, a church and a security building.
All of these will be constructed on five hectares of land.
After laying the foundation stone, the National Coordinator, Fai Yengo Francis called on the company in charge of executing the works to be fast so that the construction of a similar centre in the Far North should begin by next year.
This ceremony comes a day after ex-separatist fighters at the Centre in Buea protested once again over unfulfilled Government promises.
