The Anglophone General Conference, AGC has been postponed for the second time. According to reports from some local media, the reason for its postponement is due to the fact that the government has refused authorization for the conference.
A press conference by Cardinal Tumi will be granted on November 20 in Douala to reveal the reason for the postponement.
It should be recalled that there has been some opposition to the holding of the conference in Buea. Most notably is the Mayor of the Buea council who on numerous occasions has reiterated his stance that no such conference will take place.
Recently, the spokesman for the conference, Dr. Simon Munzu pulled out due to threats for his live. He was replaced by Elie Smith who is a strong promoter of the conference.
The AGC was initially fixed for July 25, 2018 but was later adjourned to Nov 21 and 22 which has witnessed another shift to a yet to be disclosed date. Will the 3rd Edition of the AGC hold? A question many are now asking.
