Mr. Tassang Wilfred, leader of CATTU, the main teachers’ trade union has sent out a warning note to teachers, parents, students and traditional leaders. He wrote
CAUTION & WARNING!
The government is presently in a desperate attempt to forcefully get schools to resume come Monday, Jan 9. Huge sums of money were dulled out to traditional rulers this Christmas through Governors to 1st class rulers, SDOs to 2nd class and DOs to 3rd class rulers. Whilst we caution any of our fathers who have taken this money of wickedness not to further desecrate the throne and their authority by taking the wrong side in this struggle, we appeal to all stakeholders not get give up at this point in time, when victory is so close.
“Those who are for us are more than those who are against us.” That’s the only reason to be advanced for the fact the President’s speech leaked more than 3hrs to presentation. We have friends in very high places.
After failing to force-start schools on the 9th, Yaoundé will also be forced to face reality.
The multiple secret visits to Bamenda yesterday and today by very highly placed and thought of members of government is another sign of desperation. That the government up to now has not effected nor announced any measures taken to solve either the problems raised by lawyers or teachers is indicative of the fact that we all run a great danger if we allow the strike to collapse. If it does, we shall be greatly spited and the regime will not be under pressure to address these grievances.
For union leaders and others at the forefront of this struggle, beware! It has been revealed in the spirit realms, the release of a huge amount of VOODOO money meant to maim the brain and cause heavy carnage.
We hereby call on all to fear God and resist the enemy that he may flee from us.
Dear fathers, mothers, and children, remember that teachers and lawyers are not fighting for personal gains.
Also, do not forget that our kids gave up their lives so that their siblings may have a brighter future; that scores of them are still under abduction.
Remember, DO NOT let us down at the finish line.
Communication of Jan 4th, 2017.
