Buea, 09 February, 2024 / 9:52 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Catholic Men Association (CMA) in Cameroon’s Diocese of Buea are in solidarity with Bishop Michael Miabesue Bibi, who has been facing attacks since he started governing the Cameroonian Diocese, first as Apostolic Administrator in December 2019.
They express their support for Bishop Bibi in a Thursday, February 8 statement in which they express their awareness of “the plans of the distractors of the Diocese in bringing your leadership down and to misguide the people of God in this Diocese.”
“We are also well grounded on the spreading of false information about your administration since 2019 when you were still the Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Buea,” CMA members add.

Attacks on the person of Bishop Bibi started when, as Apostolic Administrator, he made administrative changes at the Diocese-owned Catholic University Institute of Buea (CUIB) by appointing Prof. Victor Julius Ngoh as Vice Chancellor, a position previously held by Fr. George Nkeze Jingwa.
