Striving for balance and excellence in the practice of Journalism, the first female national president for the Cameroon Journalists Trade Union (CJTU) in the person of Marion Obam made it clear that she will stand by comrades of the Northwest region to better understand their problems, challenges and seek better solutions.

Speaking with Comrades of CJTU NW chapter

"We should not wait for people who live elsewhere to tell our own stories. Someone living in another town or country cannot best explain the challenges you are facing in your context. My team and I should discuss with you comrades of the Northwest region, understand your problems and seek for sustainable solutions", Marion Obam, CJTU's National President in Bamenda.

The governor was pleased to see a woman at the helm of the union, marvelled by her zeal to ensure that Journalists are protected while executing their functions. He likened the Journalist to a foot-soldier, who should be up at all moments in times, especially in a crisis situation, striving to make it right through reporting.

NW Governor, Adolphe Lele Lafrique 

"I have always told journalists to do their best to strike a balance in their reporting. They should always ask themselves if their reports will calm down tempers or fuel conflict. I recieve calls from journalists everyday, I do my best to talk with them but I don't communicate with international media, because my context is local", Northwest Governor, Adolphe Lele Lafrique.
