          Editor's Comment

The announcement of the police Boss to fast track the production of ID Cards is a welcome relief to many Cameroonians who are frustrated with the entire process. 

Many people move around with ID Card receipts and it takes almost a year for the original ID Card to be delivered.

Paradoxically, you can take less than 10 hours to acquire a passport. 

This latest announcement, The Observer believes will greatly reduce the number of persons who cue up Infront of police stations to either get new ID Cards or extend their receipts.

In other police post in Bamenda, people cue up as early as 5am just to be the first on the line to acquire the precious document.

At every check point as you drive into Bamenda, Capital of the North West Region, like to other major towns of the region, you're asked to present a copy of the ID card before you can continue.

It is also frustrating that owners of the receipt have to troop into Mobile telecommunications offices every three months just to ensure their phone lines are not suspended.

It is expected that the new software will be put into use very soon to put a definite smile on the faces of Cameroonians.
