More than five hundred persons including those With Disabilities (PWDs) have benefited from the magnanimity of the North West Regional Assembly (NWRA) in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme [UNDP] to accompany them during this festive period.

This was Friday 23 December 2022 during a Cultural end of year Festival organised by the NWRA partnering with UNDP at the esplanade of the Senior Divisional Officer's Office.

One of the recipients, Buba Abubarkar Ismaila who has been on a wheel chair since 2016 following an accident appreciated the donors for thinking about them during this period.

I am very happy to have received the items.With all these , I will not be going out anytime soon to look for what to eat. The blanket will also help me especially now that the nights and early mornings are always very cold, said Buba. 

Buba also used the event to thank North West Governor,Adolphe Lele Lafrique for supporting him with a wheel chair after he suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident in 2016.


The President of the NWRA,Hon Fru Angwafo III told the media that for almost six years now,life has been hash on the people.

Movement of persons and goods have been difficult. Imagine therefore the needy,people who are physically challenged,orphans and the sick. This is a season where we share and the Regional Assembly thought of all those that are in need, explained the president.

Apart from sharing with the needy, the fĂȘte was also a moment for cultural displays in the form of music with many of the opinion that rising music star, Jato Sonita and her group stole the show. Praises were showered on one of the youngest members of the group known as Ezemou,(name given to a chief preist in Nigeria).

It should be recalled that the armed conflict in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon has been on the neck of cultural jamborees. In the North West, the Lela's of Bali amongst others have not taken place because of the crisis. 

The end of year cultual fiesta organized by the NWRA and UNDP was an opportunity for the population to enjoy a bid of what they were served before the crisis.
