What the legislators "think" is a paradox.
Cameroonian legislators stand out and are defined by their utter lack of thought. Even those of who think make sure that they are not thought to think!
Proof: all the thinkers quoted are advocating "bilingual schools at all levels".
It is up to the state to be able to communicate with its citizens because the latter are the tax payers. The state should become bilingual. Civil servants should(must) be able to represent the state in that regard by being bilingual. That's where the onus should be.
In this scenario, the govt would have been able to implement its assimilation policy because citizens would have been able to "cope" with govt institutions being monolingual. Hardly anyone would think that a fair or desirable outcome.
It is the govt institutions which should cope with citizens being monolingual if they (citizens) choose.
LRC has contempt for SC and thats why this commission is very likely to be attempting to convert SC citizens to cope with a monolingual state. Luckily no one is go to fall for it.

Pour bon nombre d’entre eux, la clé de voute de la promotion du bilinguisme au Cameroun est le secteur éducatif où chaque établissement devrait être bilingue. Ci-dessous, quelques avis compilés par nos confrères des Cameroon Tribune.

Jean Tsomelou, Sénateur, SDF: «Il faut des réformes institutionnelles fortes»

«La promotion du bilinguisme passe par des réformes institutionnelles fortes. En effet, on ne peut pas, dans le secteur de l’éducation, avoir tous les acteurs qui soient francophones. Il se trouve que tous les ministres qui interviennent dans le domaine de l’éducation au Cameroun sont francophones, alors qu’on sait qu’il existe deux sous-systèmes. Donc, il est question de commencer par réparer cette inégalité. C’est pour cela que nous appelons le gouvernement à implémenter véritablement le bilinguisme par des décisions de grande portée, comme la désignation des responsables qui doivent  mener cette politique  au plan éducatif».

Hon. Ngala Esther Ntala, SDF Member of the National Assembly: “Create Bilingual Teachers’ Training Schools”

“The effective promotion of bilingualism should start with the provision of syllabuses at nursery, primary and secondary school levels. At the local level, linguistics centres should be created to reinforce the studying and practice of bilingualism. Seminars should also be organised at the level of villages to teach people on the basics in English and French languages to enable them use the two languages in their daily activities. I believe that bilingualism should be practised in all fields. Indeed, we need bilingual teachers’ training schools at all levels. The members of the National Commission on Bilingualism and Multiculturalism should respect the missions of the structure and their terms of reference. We hope they will be frank people as many commissions have failed Cameroonians.”

Senator Wanlo Chiamua John, CPDM Senator:  “Bilingualism Commission Members Should Be Sincere”

“The President of the Republic has just appointed members of the National Commission for the promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism with former Prime Minister, Senator Peter Mafany Musonge as chairperson of the Commission. The people appointed are up to the task. They know what to do to promote bilingualism. This time around, they should think twice and say the reality. They should be engaged and work for positive results. We have the people who can deliver the goods. The people should be sincere and get to work. They should say the facts and the truth.”

Jean Marie Pongmoni, Sénateur RDPC: «Toutes nos écoles doivent être bilingues»

«Il y a des innovations à apporter au niveau de l’enseignement. Et pour cela, je pense que toutes nos écoles doivent être bilingues. Il ne doit plus être question d’un choix, mais d’une décision généralisée. Ce qui permettrait que nos programmes d’enseignement soient en anglais et en français dès la base. Par ailleurs,  il faut créer des centres linguistiques au niveau départemental. Jusqu’ici, on n’en trouve que dans les chefs-lieux de régions. Les actes administratifs au niveau des régions devront être systématiquement dans les deux langues officielles. Car, très souvent, on ne s’intéresse qu’aux décrets importants, mais on oublie ces décisions qui sont prises au niveau des départements».
