Before leaving Bamenda, the head of the Commission told journalists that the laying of the foundation stone will take place early next month. Classified sources say Yang Philemon is likely the high profile personality to lay the foundation stone early next month. Besides, compensations have been disbursed to owners of properties that would be affected. The disbursements we gathered were done through bank transactions. Some seven graves we gathered would be transferred this weekend as construction work begins soon. This is so because according to the hint, the Bamenda construction project is being considered as the pilot phase of the nationwide project.
