He was speaking at the Glass House Tuesday, July 9, 2019 during a solemn plenary sitting to close the June Ordinary Session of the National Assembly. His dense and intense speech was the lone item on the agenda.
Cavaye came back to what the members of the National Assembly did for the last 30 days at the hemicycle. He reminded Cameroonians that it is not by killing and burning that they would build their country.
The ordinary session had been marked by the organization of several forums bringing together several subjects to the fore. Issues that animated debates included: the use of drugs among youths, the timber domestic sector and its impact on the economy, as well as the promotion of human rights in the wake of terrorism and the use of Information and Communication Technologies.
The just ended session also saw for the first time the organization of the budgetary orientation debates described as historic by Hon. Joshua Osih, 1st Vice National Chairman of the opposition Social Democratic Front, SDF, party.
Cavaye also came back to the various socio political events that have marked the life of the country. He noted with satisfaction that several international delegations and missions have been to Cameroon to appraise for themselves the socio political situation in the country.
While expressing gratitude to the members of these missions, Cavaye expressed the wish of seeing them involved in efforts made by the government to restore peace in the country.
The Speaker of Cameroon's National Assembly condemned and denounced, on behalf of lawmakers, what he described as the "armed robbery" and "anti-patriotic" acts perpetrated by some outlawed individuals abroad.
He was however happy that the "shameful move" was quickly counteracted by committed Cameroonians who showed their attachment to their president, country and its regime.
He saluted the Swiss Police and authorities for taking prompt measures to disperse the protesters.
Some 250 anti-Biya protesters returned to the hotel believed to have been hosting President Paul Biya on Saturday June 29 and were dispersed with teargas and water cannons after some tried to break through police lines.
Atanga Nji Saluted For Traceability, Transparency
The House Speaker addressed words of praise to the Emergency Humanitarian Plan for victims of the socio political situation in the North West and South West Regions at the head of which is Minister Atanga Nji Paul, Minister of Territorial Administration.
Cavaye saluted the traceability and transparency in the distribution of the relief materials and the savvy and savoir-faire of Minister Atanga Nji. Over 104,000 of the estimated 152,000 internally displaced persons are thought to have benefited from the aid.
He also hailed the National Disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration committee of the ex-fighters of Boko Haram and armed groups in the North West and South West regions. He said 206 ex-fighters have been reached.
Cavaye enjoined those still hesitant to lay down their arms to follow the example of those who have already done so in a bid to contribute in the construction of Cameroon that belongs to all.
