The MP from Bafut-Tubah constituency in the North West region, said it was but normal as youngest MP in the current legislature to receive his brothers and sisters from the NW and talk and share ideas with them on happenings in the region, get their expectations and difficulties.
He underscored the need for youth from NW and the nation at large to uphold values of patriotism, civic behavior among others.
He challenged the junior MPs to be peace ambassadors, be role models of other NW youth, be respectful to MPs of their constituency and other municipal and regional authorities, and to collaborate with all and sundry for the development of the region.
The Junior MPs on their part from all the 20 constituencies of the region saluted the initiative from the youngest parliamentarian in Cameroon.
“There is no need for us to be fighting our Government, there is just no need for us to try to change our ancestral boundaries, we need to truly become peace ambassadors for the interest of the entire region”. Ngafue Marcel Robwoh, President of the NW MPs told News Upfront.
The reception comes as the junior MPs just ended the 4th edition of Youth Parliamentary session in Yaounde.

The law makers pledged to fully support the Junior MPs in all their activities and to always liaise with them to ensure the return to peace in all the constituencies.
The lawmakers enjoined the junior MPs to preach peace to their peers in the region and see how they can use their own experience as youth to lure those carrying arms in the bushes to lay them down, give peace a chance, resume normal life and join in the reconstruction of the region.
