These projects will go a long way to rehabilitate Ngie and to enable a smooth and tranquil life.

For the year 2020, most projects envisaged were not 100% realized due to the insecurity in the area but with the target to restore peace, there's certainty the 2021 projects will be accomplished.

The putting down of the thick forest that had engulfed Andek before, making the Andek town unclean. As a result, most markets, shops, schools are already functional in the municipality.

He acknowledged the fact that decentralisation is in the hands of the local government thus councillors should be responsible and and carry the message of peace

"The council is now truly the people’s local government. That is why all government
developmental actions are now devolved to the councils"

Several projects envisaged for 2020 were not 100% accomplished reason why the Mayor says

"I am taking all the measures, as I am doing, to force
normalcy to return to Andek. Any person who is against these measures is working
against the development of the municipality, which we stand for" Mayor Ubangoh highlighted

A comprehensive list of all the State and Council properties, structures, bridges and roads in the municipality, that were damaged or that have degraded because of the crisis have been handed for eventual renovation and construction. This as a benefit from the Presidential Reconstruction and Development plan.

Mayor Ubangoh Helly ended by calling on all all councillors to work together for the rebirth of Ngie Subdivision

"Let us, therefore, as
from today, put all hands on deck in our determination to completely transform the Andek Municipality before the end of our mandate."
