Security was tight, the euphoria absent, but the mission of the delegation led by CPDM Secretary General, Jean Nkuete and Prime Minister, Philemon Yang, was very clear, woo all Councillors to vote for the CPDM in the March 25, 2016 elections.
Before Nkuete and Yang could make their entering into the rather calm Ayaba Hotel on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, their selected audience made up of CPDM Councillors, Sub Section and Section Presidents and other stalwarts of the party, who are directly concerned with the elections were already waiting amidst tight security.
Addressing the Councillors, the Secretary General of the CPDM Central Committee, Jean Nkuete, said he was in Bamenda to encourage the Councillors to vote wisely and consolidate the party’s achievements realised over the years, under the magisterial of President Paul Biya.
According to the CPDM Scribe, other localities in Cameroon are envious of the North West Region because of the many development projects Government has been carrying out in the Region. “In order for the North West Region to continue to benefit from these development projects and even more under President Paul Biya, Councillors must be wise to vote for the CPDM and nothing else,” Nkuete stated.
Mounting the rostrum, the North West CPDM Regional Coordinator, Philemon Yang, thanked the CPDM Secretary General for coming to launch the campaigns in Bamenda.
He said the CPDM National President, Paul Biya is waiting for their votes as they are bent on sweeping all the Senatorial seats in the North West. He prayed for the Councillor to remain physically fit and mentally stable to deliver the seven Senatorial seats in the North West Region to the President.
The Prime Minister instructed all the CPD Councillors to relocate to their Divisional Headquarters where they are expected to vote to avoid any inconveniences. He told the Councillors that the party will feed and lodge them.
Despite the presence of all the CPDM movers and shakers in the North West Region, the two Santa CPDM kingpins; John Begineh Ndeh and Simon Achidi Achu were conspicuously absent. Tongues were already wagging that the absence of these party bigwigs were not unconnected to the disqualification of their various Senatorial lists.
