Having been born and raised a Baptist, it saddens me to hear of the never ending squabbles that have plagued the CBC. However, the complain from the south westerners about the pepertual marginilization in the hands of their north west brethrenS is not new. This has been going on for decades. It just suffice to go to any of the C.B.C's institutions, be it hospitals, clinics, secondary or high schools to see the domination of the north westerners. The occupy all the important positions. It is even worse with the Health Board were a north westerner has been in the helm for more than 25 years. He has used his position to not only place his brothers and sisters from the north west in positions in baptist hospitals and clinics, but also, has used his position to obtain foreign scholarships for them. The saddest part of this issue is that this domination has been made easy by some power thirsty preveildeged south westerners. Take the case of the Baptist Education Secretarys office which until the 1990s, was in Buea but was moved to Bamenda for dubious reason. My wish is that this new attempt at righting the injustice actually leads to something. For any of this to happen, some prominent north westerners in priviledge postion within the church world have to give up their positions. These are my humble proposal for the constitutional Change within the CBC: 1. split the seats in the general council equally between the northwest and the south west delegates 2. alternate the position of general secretary between the south west and north west every 6 years. 3. Recruitment within the church's institutions should be supervise by a committe made up of an equal number of south westerners and north westerns. I totally disagree with Rexon's call for a split in the CBC. This will not lead to any solutions. You just have to look at the Belo field problem to understand how difficult it is to split the church.
