His Royal Highness, Doh Gahnyam II promised Ntumfor of their continued support for him.  He told his people that Ntumfor and his close collaborators are people of their words. He cited the construction of a new community hall, the two roads into the village from Santa and a classroom block at GTC Baligham as fallout from their pre-election promise.

“Politics na njangi” the Fon said using the words of Hon Achidi Achu, a tacit reference to their commitment to continuously vote for the CPDM in order to attract more development to their community.

Overwhelmed by the turnout and support of the Baligham people, Hon Achidi lauched an impromptu fund raising to complete the floor of the Village Hall, with the donation of sixty bags of cement. This was followed by another 30 bags of cement by Ntumfor Fru Jonathan and the collection of 43 500 CFA Frs. in cash on the spot.
