Bamenda City delegate blames slow development on limited resources

in City Council News

The governmnet delegate to the Bamenda City Council Board has blamed the slow implementation of projects for the development of the city to limited resources. Vincent Nji Ndumu was speaking during the first Ordinary Session of the city board yesterday Thursday 14, 2016 in Bamenda. The session which was dedicated entirely to the administrative and management accounts gave room for the city Government delegate to explain to the city board members how he spent the FCFA 3.6bn given him as budget in 2015.

In providing the explanation, Vincent Nji stated that he was able to collect just FCFA 2.3bn and used that to run the council and carry some projects like taring roads.

The City board members representing Bamenda I, II and III council's had to examine the delegate's submission together with that of the Municipal treasurer and the stores accountant before voting unanimously for adoption according to the Secretary General of the City Council Jude Waindim.

The government will later present a new city hall requesting the grand councilors to vote and empower him to seek funding to the tune of FCFA 300 million from the council support fund for mutual assistance FEICOM for its realisation with an addition of FCFA 200 million from the City Council.

The absence of the two mayors of Bamenda I and III all opposition (SDF) has been noticed by reporters particularly as ex-officio members and certainly leaders of the SDF Grand councilors group. Their role in the adoption of projects is always very vital. It is not certain if the SDF grand councilors group can independently reject the adoption of a bill without them.

The session coincided with the 6th anniversary of Mayor Amandou's death (pioneer mayor of Bamenda III Council who died April 14, 2010) and according to Senior Councilor Kaba Charles who was elected protem chairman during the session it was a natural way to pay tribute to the SDF fallen hero. See image of late mayor beside this story.

The session it should be noted held in-camera.
