There are +180 million People in neighboring Nigeria. The Bamenda ~ Enugu Highway opens up opportunities to the farmers of the West, North West and South West provinces of Cameroon that can literally be transformative in the fortunes and livelihoods of these entire regions.
The biggest hurdle that farmers face now is the wanton government corruption that keeps grants in the pockets of ghost farmers in high government offices, lack of access from the few true farms to this particular highway and an ingrained culture of impunity, tax and spend, that has blinded the government in Yaounde to the transformative value of the Nigerian market to the fortunes of its citizens. In Cameroon, as long as the average government official does not derive a personal gain in any project it is trivialized and subsequently dismissed.
A plea from Cameroon Concord........
Thank you for reading our magazine, we have a plea to ask you our readers. Over the last two years, hits on our articles have been climbing, we have had an increase in clicks and also a broader reading audience on our social media channels.Our readers have been writing to us requestion for news updates from Cameroon/Southern Cameroons. We have as well been trying to give you the best we can, however, we are short of finances to recruit reporters to carry on independent and investigative journalism which takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. We are therefore pleading on you to support our efforts for this platform to be able to keep up the good work we are doing.
For as little as €1, you can support Cameroon Concord– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
