Divided Loyalties: Prof. Arrey Abangma call off strike after Fame Ndongo promises him post of Rector 2
Senior security agents from the nation’s capital Yaoundé, have reportedly pressured members of the National Union of Higher Education Teachers Trade Union, SYNES to announced that the body has called off the strike action initiated last November 21, 2016 in the two state universities.
The CPDM-La Republique move came on Monday March 20, 2017 in a fake press release that was made public at Chariot Hotel in Buea. Journalists sponsored by the Biya regime were made to report on some pronouncements by the President of the University of Buea chapter, Prof, Arrey Abangma.
Prof. Arrey Abangma, heard murmuring privately over the shabby treatment given to his kinsman, Lord Justice Ayah Paul Abine was quoted as saying that the suspension was due to what he termed good faith by the vicious Beti Ewondo government who according to him has been implementing resolutions of the meeting which held in Bamenda last January.
Abangma was promised the post of Rector of the University of Buea and compelled to opine that “The conference today is to declare the suspension of the strike; we are calling on all students and lecturers to come to school on Monday for classes. We are also appealing to the Government to release some students and Lecturers arrested.”
The calling off of this strike action by SYNES members comes weeks after they had vowed that the strike must continue. Police stormed the residence of the President Arrey Abangma and made away his son.
