Drama in Bamenda at Installation of CPDM Regional, Divisional Coordinators

CPDM Scribe and PM Yang embracing
 Jean Nkwete, CPDM Secretary General will never forget Bamenda. In fact those who took the pains to attend the official installation of Yang Philemon and his team went home more confused than when they were coming. This is so because some CPDM militants brandished  "red cards" in the hall to express their disgust to party hierarchy. The "red cards" which were allegedly prepared by some Mezam CPDM militants had diversified interpretations. To many, the red cards were being directed to party hierarchy for imposing coordinators on local party officials while another school of thought holds that they were the handiwork of recalcitrant militants. Though CPDM scribe was mute over the incident, a classified source hinted us that Jean Nkwete before leaving Bamenda ordered that the incident should be investigated properly and reported to him within two days.
PM Yang (Regional Coordinator/ Fon Aneng being installed
An atmosphere of uncertainty looms in the Mezam CPDM as heads are expected to role over the precarious incident that left many speechless. However, it is aired that CPDM section President held a secret meeting in Bafut long ago to designate their coordinator but their choice was rejected by party hierarchy. Besides another tip holds that militants of Mezam IB were also aghast at the that the Bamenda Congress hall was handed to the Divisional Coordination to manage and not the host section as it was the case before the appointment of Divisional coordinators. Moreso, tongues are still waging as to why John B Ndeh, the initiator of the Regional Coordination of the CPDM in North West was not even appointed as member if he could not be appointed coordinator. Yet Yaounde based CPDM barons say the red cards were on the contrary brandished to the national chairman of the party and not whosoever. One of them to spoke to us on grounds of animosity said that they will make sure that such recalcitrant moves are punished severely. 
However, SDF Coordinator for Donga Mantung in reaction to the installation of Shey Jones Yembe as CPDM Coordinator for Donga Mantung said she was happy to have new colleagues. Florence Njobe, SDF Coordinator for Donga Mantung said that Shey Jones Yembe should always comeback to the Division so that they could rub shoulders in the field. "A good car is known by its engine and not cabin" she added.

Nigerian Legislators Fight Over Prado SUV Cars and Constituency Projects

 There is a sharp division in the House of Representatives as lawmakers fight over decision to purchase Prado SUV Cars and constituency projects.
 All is not well in the House of Representatives as members are still sharply divided over which car to purchase for official use.
 According to Daily Sun, at the Executive Session of the House yesterday, lawmak­ers deliberated on different issues with questions aris­ing on why the leadership of the House settled for the Nigerian made Peugeot 508, rather than the more prestigious Toyota Prado Landcruiser SUV, which is the preferred choice of the Senate.
 This forced many lawmakers to express their grievances and others used the opportunity to complain over the spread of constituency and zonal projects.
 It didn't stop there as lawmakers also raised objections to Ab­dulmumin Jibrin’s position as Chairman of the Ap­propriations Committee, demanding that he be re­moved to salvage the repu­tation of the House which, they insisted, had been sev­erally damaged by the con­troversies that surrounded the 2016 budget. Jibrin was accused of allocating projects worth N4 billion to his Bibeji/Kiru Federal Constituency.
 The executive ses­sion was characterised by complaints as lawmakers took turns to say that they have been shortchanged with regard to the spread of constituency projects. Members accused principal of­ficers of cor­nering projects that should have been shared to other constituencies in their states and zones.
 A lawmaker registering his grievances said: “If you look at what has happened in the last three years, I don’t think lawmakers should still be talking about what kind of car we should be given. This year we have only N115 billion as allocation, where do they expect the leadership of the House to get money to buy SUVs?
 “People are really disap­pointed that the culture of principal officers taking a lion share of constituency projects, leaving those in their states and even their geo-political zones with almost nothing is still the order of the day.
“We thought that part of the change the All Progressive Congress government is talking about also has to do with transparently spreading constituency projects. But the contrary is the case and people made their feelings known about this,” the lawmaker said.

Names of Nigerian Churches that Will Crack Your Ribs (Photos

 As religion find its way into virtually everything that we do these days, it has become very alarming and worrisome. These Churches has given us a cause for concern with their hilarious names and programmes.

 The names of the new generation church springing up almost anywhere in Nigeria now is alarming and themes of some of these church programmes are very hilarious.
 Below are a collection of photos of Nigerian church banners you must see!

Lesson from Nigeria: Senate Passes Bill Compelling Government to Buy Made-in-Nigeria Products

Nigerians especially those who produce made-in-Nigeria products are in for a sweet surprise as the Senate today passed a bill compelling government to buy made-in-Nigeria products.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki
The Nigerian Senate took a great step in stabilizing the country's economy and protecting its locally made goods as it passed into law the Public Procurement Act 20‎07 (amendment) bill 2016. The law makes it mandatory for government agencies to purchase and patronize made-in-Nigeria goods.
The law will not only promote locally made products, it will also help stabilize the economy.
The Senate President while considering a report on the bill said that the latest move by the hollow chamber is a good move in the right direction as it will help “in stimulating our economy, [as] we all have a role to play to ensure that the executive complies especially in the area of giving first priority to locally-produced goods.


“This has helped many countries to develop when they had issues of downturn in their economy. I believe that having over N3trn available to stimulate local production going on now.
“One of the things that we have done today is also trying to shorten the process of awarding contracts; this will go a long way in helping budget implementation.
“It would go a long way in ensuring that most of the funds are available as quickly as possible and jobs are actually completed. I want to commend my colleagues for passing this bill‎.”

Another Burglary at Minister of Health's Residence, Andre Mama Fouda


Minister of Health, André Mama Fouda


The home of the Minister of Health, André Mama Fouda, located at Obobogo neighborhood in Yaounde, was again visited on the night of Tuesday, June 14, 2016 by bandits.
According to news reports one of the guards who had been tied by the gang of bandits is quoted as saying that "one of the three bandits climbed the fence of the house by the back wall. It was he who tied up the guards before opening the gate to his accomplices”. It is alleged that the bandits also gave a snake beating to Mama Fouda’s wife.
It's hard, though, to have a clear idea about the losses suffered by Minister of Public Health in this other banditry act. It is alleged a huge sum of money purportedly close to half a billion FCFA (more than FCFA 500.000.000) was taken away by criminals. Tongues are still waging as to why Mama Fouda’s residence has become fertile ground for thieves. Some newspaper even reported the disappearance of valuable jewelry and firearms. Several elements of the Special Rapid Intervention (ESIR) police were deployed in the area after the incident. Those who had spent the night on patrol in the area were calling all passers of the lane that leads to Mama Fouda, we learn. This is not the first time that bandits have visited André Mama Fouda. Last year, was the money belonging to the Association for mutual aid and solidarity of the elites and forces of Mfoundi that thieves carried away. In 2012, newspapers reported that more than 300 million CFA francs had been stolen in the minister’s residence in Obobogo in Yaounde.

I am Prepared to Serve My Country in Whatever Capacity-Ta Nformi Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh

Culled from The Advocate

The President of The Fomunyoh Foundation, Ta Nformi Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh has declared that he is ready to serve his country in any capacity. The international consultant on democracy and peace made the declaration during a free and independent presentation in Buea, a meeting organized  at the private residence of a Buea based Human Rights activist and legal mind, Barrister Agbor Balla. Present to listen to the various free and independent presentations were lawyers, journalists, civil society leaders, human rights activists and refined politicians like Ben Muna.
But hopes were dashed when he (Ta Nformi Cameroon) dribbled his fans without declaring his intentions to contest in the upcoming Presidential elections. Those who thought that he was going to declare his political affiliation or candidature were taken aback. Apparently, Fomunyoh’s silence on the issue of his candidacy is yet to quell the speculation that seems to be growing leaps and bounds as 2018 draws nearer, and many Cameroonians take personal initiatives to reserve domain names, create Fomunyh fan clubs and join online groups in an effort to persuade and pressure him to step forward and get into the Presidential race.
However, in responding to questions raised in the hall in pertaining to his interest or intention towards the top job, he responded that “I am prepared to serve my country in whatever capacity”. This declaration ushered a mixed reaction giving the impression that those who turned out were not very satisfied with his responds. Ta Nformi Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh however continued by adding that “I feel I was born in this country for a purpose and any right thinking Cameroonian like me who has benefitted from the community must give back. I have found so much interest in the younger generation, despite the darkness, the sun will finally rise. There is hope that such a time will come, you can count on me to make my own contribution to build the nation and I will do that with a lot of honour”.
Harping on the democratic process in Cameroon, Ta Nformi Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh traced the historical perspective of Cameroon’s democracy as far back as 1972, then 1982, then 1992 where there was a competitive election which he believed had a point difference of 3 or 4%. He continued that he is aware of the accumulation of grievances at the time and that “we should play from the position of strength. If we project ourselves, the data would be different, we should be asking for an equal opportunity. Instead of demanding for some key ministries, we should be the ones appointing ministers”. He added that if in 1992 Ni John Fru Ndi could come close to win, then 30 years after, we should not shy away the responsibility of governing our country; we should govern not because we are Anglophones but because we are capable of doing it; that is what I mean by speaking from a position of strength”.
He also said that there is the need for the separation of power which does not allow the executive overpowering the judiciary and the legislative, decentralization and other topical issues such as the imposition of government delegates as well as individual and collective responsibilities that should be handled by the constitution.
