The United Nations Director of Communications at the UN office in Yaounde, Mrs Anne Nsang, was in Bamenda recently to update Northwest journalists about important events at the UN.
She also used the occasion to hand over a computer and a laser printer to the Bamenda United Nations Press Club alongside valuable books and UN handouts on accurate reporting.

Mrs Nsang said, the UN Communication Department holds the Bamenda Press Club in very high esteem. "Today, we are giving you a printer that should help the Club operate fully."
She announced media training sessions this year with topics on "Reporting Development" and "Climate Change".
"If people ask why Bamenda UN Club always, tell them this is the only Club that keeps us worried in Yaounde. You are always inviting us to come do one or two things and, for this, we are grateful," Nsang said. She praised GBHS, Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Lourdes colleges for embracing the fight against climate change. The Northwest Regional Delegate of Communication, Mrs. Mary Maimo Mah, expressed gratitude to the United Nations Communication Unit for pooling resources all the time to empower Northwest journalists.
She promised that the UN Bamenda Press Club office situated Up Station will be ready for use by the end of February. Describing Bamenda Club as a privileged one, the Northwest Coordinator of the UN Press Club, Choves Loh, appreciated the gifts and requested journalists who are members of the Club to make good use of the Internet and other services the UN has put at their disposal.
