The Peace Crusader who doubles as president of the general assembly of the Cameroon Bar Association has announced that he will not participate in the committee created to examine and propose solutions to the grievances of Southern Cameroons lawyers.
Barrister Halle Nico is reportedly surprised that the presidents of the Fako and Meme Lawyers Association who championed the strike action are not on the Committee thereby giving the impression that it is a North West and not an Anglophone problem.
The legal luminary is also requesting that the seat of the Committee should be Buea or Bamenda and not Yaoundé. The senior Barrister has also questioned why the Chairperson of the Committee is a francophone who cannot articulate the common law.
Ntumfor Barrister Nico Halle observed that he has already informed the Prime Minister about his decision not to sit on the Committee which is supposed to meet in Yaoundé today December the 27th 2016.
