He made the call Tuesday March 14, 2017 at the City Council hall during a crisis meeting held to discuss way forward after a fire incident ravaged close to 60 shops in the market.
According to Vincent NDUMU, ghost town is helping to paralyze activities of traders who are supposed to be preoccupied on how to expand their businesses. He also urged all traders to send their children to school and forget about school boycott because they are putting the education of their children on the balance.
The Bamenda Government Delegate during the meeting reiterated that the fire incident was perpetrated by those people who do not want children to go back to school. His suspicion is based on tracks which are said to have been circulated Monday warning traders who continue to boycott ghost town days.
To Vincent NDUMU people should not be obeying leaders they cannot see. He said if the Government had succeeded to take Bakassi from Nigeria, defeat Boko Haram, then it would be able to track down perpetrators of the act.
During the enlarged meeting with victims of the fire incident and market Masters of some major markets, Vincent NDUMU NJI promised that the burnt shops will be reconstructed within three months and that the new ones will be modernized.
The fire incident occurred early Tuesday ravaging about 60 shops, it was only contained by army rescue unit and even police who used water Canons to quench the inferno.
