Michael Bibi, Auxiliary Bishop of Bamenda Archdiocese told Cameroon Tribune after meeting the Prime Minister that, "The other church leaders also shared their own opinions towards moving forward as a nation. Of course, we condemned actions of violence perpetuated by the population or the military. Concerning Cameroonians in the Diaspora who have been championing the secessionist actions, he said, " We also appealed to the government to look even at the possibility of trying to reach out to members of the governing council because they are still Cameroonians though living abroad. They should be brought to the dialogue table, listen to them and get what they have to suggest and accept points that can be acceptable and drop what is unaccepted.".
