The budget for Nkambe Council for the year 2013 stands at 609,551,000 FCFA. The budget was adopted in a budgetary session that held at the Nkambe Community hall last Saturday Nov. 17th 2012.
Talking to participants at the start of the session, the Mayor of Nkambe Council Mangoh Jones Tanko thanked all present and called on his fellow Councilors to demonstrate a high sense of maturity in examining the 2013 draft budget. The Mayor also noted the fact that they are in a bonus period of their mandate and as such must put hands on deck to realize set objectives.
After deliberations, councilors finally adopted a total sum of 609.551.000FCFA for 2013. The budget however has dropped compared to 884,504,984FCFA adopted last year. The Mayor however explained that the drop is due to the fact that in 2011 some 270million FCFA was budgeted for the construction of “The Town Hall. “This was suppose to come into account so that there is no need for it to appear in the 2013 budget.
At the end of the session, Mayor Manyoh expressed satisfaction with the budget which he describes as realistic. He equally sounded optimistic as concerns the government of Cameroon from whom he has received certificates freeing the Nkambe Council from some debts. The Mayor however lamented the fact that the former S.D.O for Donga Mantung Nzeki Theophile before going on transfer had sold a parcel of land that belonged to the Nkambe council. At the same time, he swore that in the days ahead he will be meeting the S.D.O, Ngone Ndodemesape Bernard whom he describes as level – headed to seek ways of getting back the said piece of land.
The S.D. O. for Donga Mantung in his capacity as supervisory authority commented the spirit in which the deliberations were conducted and called on councilors present to continue to sensitize and educate the population while at the same time cultivate in them the spirit of patriotism. He also used the opportunity to call on councilors to do everything in their respective spheres to encourage their populations to register massively on the biometric voters list.
