Elections Cameroon: Enow Abraham Catapulted to the Position of President

Enow Abraham Egbe

Enow Abrahams Egbe is the new President of Elections Cameroon (Elecam), a body charged with the organization and management of the elections. Enow Abrahams Egbe, who is former Governor, was appointed by President Paul Biya last Tuesday.
The civil administrator replaces Dr. Samuel Fonkam Azu'u, who has been at the helm of ELECAM for nearly eight years ever since the electoral body was created in 2008, to replace the National Elections Observatory (NEO). Mme Amougou née Abena Ekobena Appoline Marie was also appointed Vice President and she replaces Justin Ebanga Ewodo. Elecam members it should be noted are appointed for a four-year renewable term. While some members were flushed out by the Presidential decree, some new names into the Board included amongst others, Mr. Mbu Peter who apparently replaces Fonkam Azu’u from the North West Region. Tongues are still waging as to whether it is the brouhaha between Dr. Fonkam Azu’u and Abdoulaye Babale that has ignited the mighty storm at ELECAM or not. However, Dr. Fonkam Azu’u quits Elecam shoulders high.
