Furthermore, Fon Chafah’s leadership skills and mobilization spirit pushed him to initiate the Cameroon Traditional rulers’ forum. His being at the senate will certainly give him the opportunity to defend the interest of the rural poor. Being a 3rd Grade Magistrate is not only an asset but also an impetus for him to make authentic contribution on bills. Senate as echoed is not a place for retired civil servants or old people; it is a place where brain weaves. It should be recalled that in 2007, Fon Chafah worked relentlessly for the CPDM to win in Ngoketunjia South. Reasons why it is now time for Fon Chafah to be part of the pioneer senate in Cameroon. Fon Chafah Isaac is a household name in Cameroon and a dynamo in Ngoketunjia. He is development oriented and this could be seen through the lens of the numerous development projects in his village. He knows very well the realities in rural areas and would be one of the defenders of the ordinary man if elected into senate. What makes Fon Chafah a good senator is his intellectual ability, his devotion for work and his sense of patriotism.
When contacted on phone, Fon Chafah said the request for him to contest for senate was a popular demand of the people. “My people want me to represent them and I cannot but accept”. Being a traditional ruler who was enthroned when he was still very young has gathered a lot of experience to the point that he could also make a dynamic and exemplary senator for Ngoketunjia people. The fact that he is celebrated for his stand for the truth and meaningful development as well makes him a good senator. It should be recalled that in 2012, Fon Chafah was voted by The Watchdog Tribune as Man of the Year, besides he was also voted by readers of The Eye Newspaper as Traditional Ruler of the Year. Beside, the above mentioned award, he also received from The Guardian Post another distinction for his devotion for work.
