Mezam Senior Divisional officer, Nguelle Nguelle Felix has rounded up with the official installation of newly elected mayors of the 7 councils under his area of command, with the installation of Ajong Ngoh Sylvanus Dobgima and  Langsi Abel in the Bali and Bafut councils respectively on Saturday November 30th 2013.

The SDO started in Bamenda II Sub divisional Council on Wednesday November 27, where Balick Awah Fedelis and his two deputies, Fonguh Joseph Ngu and Achidi Beatrice were officially installed in the presence of over 5000 people, including traditional authorities, religious leaders and political leaders from the CPDM and SDF parties.

From Bamenda II, the SDO next installed madam Bongwa Caroline and her deputies of Bamenda I, and Tanjong Martin and his deputies in Tubah on Thursday November 28,  before moving over to Santa and Bamenda III on Friday to install Pastor Khan Elroy Moses and his four deputies and Fongu Cletus and his 2 deputies.

In all 7 council areas, the SDO called on the elected officials to improve on council revenue, stimulate local development, improve on the road networks, water supply, build more schools and fight corruption in all its forms in the council milieu.  He further reminded the mayors and their deputies and the councilors to work for the greater good of the general public, and not on party lines, because they are the peoples’ representatives and no longer belong to any political party.

To the Bamenda I, II and III Council executives, the SDO urged them to work in close collaboration with the Government Delegate to the Bamenda City Council especially in instilling law and order in the commercial motorcycle sector, combat the creation and operation of illegal parks and markets in the city, the illegal loading and offloading at major road junctions and the increasing cyber crime in the city of Bamenda.

Amongst the 7 mayors, Pastor Khan Elroy Moses of Santa, Tanjong Martin of Tubah, Bongwa Caroline of Bamenda I and Ajong Ngoh Sylvanus of Bali are freshly elected while Balick Awah Fedelis of Bamenda II, Fonguh Cletus of Bamenda II, and langsi Abel of Bafut are returning to office after having served one term each in their respective councils.
