Kaduna Mafia Triumphs in B’da at North West Fons Elective Assembly

HRH Fon Teche, NOWEFU President Elect
Fon Teche Nyei of Ngyen-muwa has been elected to lead the 50 man powerful executive of the North West Fons Union-NOWEFU in the North West Region of Cameroon. While on the other hand, Fon Zofoa Ibrahim of Babungo, commonly known as “Obama Obabungo” was elected Secretary General. Also elected was the fon of Mbatu who will take care of the treasury. The new executive is expected to set the pace for a better collaboration between the administration and the union, elite and the union as well as reconcile all the fons.  Observers say the elections were in favour of a group of traditional rulers’ common known as the Kaduna mafia. However, the out-gone President of NOWEFU whose mandate has been described as adamant in his speech said the creation of the University of Bamenda, the Higher Teachers Training College and upgrading/ tarring of some patches of the ring road were the major achievements. Yet, those who were present at the doubted Fon Anneng Francis while critical minds are of the opinion that the one-time biggest lobbying force of the region is wallowing in the gutter. However, the new exco has been tasked to complete the construction of the multi-complex secretariat which has been described by some Northwesterners as a Roman Arch. Also raised was the controversy surrounding the Ntumfor title and the suspension of Ntumfor Nico Halle. Members wanted to know what transpired some five years ago yet, the out-gone and the present exco played over it. It was rather unfortunate that it was instead the Right Hon. Achidi Achu took the rostrum to say that the Ntumfor title was an appointment and anyone appointed could be fired. There is still heat as far as the suspension of Ntumfor Nico Halle is concern, even from the attendance, out of the over 400 fons, only 205 showed up which is   indicative that many are still unhappy about the issue. However, the newly elected President of NOWEFU in his policy speech announced that the official installation of the his executive will take place in two months time. According to Fon Teche, that ceremony shall be presided by the minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization, Mr. Rene Sadi. Conspicously absent were the Fon Angwafo III of Mankon, Fon Sehl Mbinglo of Nso, Fon Gahyongha of Bali and Fon Yuh of Kom. Moreso, there was no repreentative of the administration.
