Nicky Love Maptue Fotso, daughter of late business tycoon Victor Fotso is the new Mayor of the Pete Bandjoun Council in the Koung Khi Division of the West region of Cameroon.
She was elected to replace the late father at the head of the Municipality this Monday May 11 during an extra-ordinary Council session that took place at the Council hall of Pete Bandjoun, in the Koungh Khi Division, West region of Cameroon in compliance with the General code of decentralised territorial collectivities.
According to sources, Nicky who stood as first Deputy Mayor of the Council grabbed all the forty votes of Municipal Councillors present at the session.
This happened as her challengers, Emmanuel Chatue, CEO of Canal 2 International and David Kengne reportedly withdrew their candidacy few minutes to the election.
Nicky Love Fotso will thus assume the functions of Mayor of the Council of Pete Bandjoun after having run the Council in interim after the death of her father, Victor Fotso last March 20 in France.
She has promised to continue with the charitable works of her late father.
