Since the February 9th 2020 municipal elections that saw a change of command at the Bafut council, councilors braved the odds to hold their administrative and management accounts session within the municipality.

Bafut since the start of the armed conflicts in the North West and South West regions have been a red zone, with several clashes, road blocks and other upheavals recorded.

For a while now, military operations on the ground has brought some degree of normalcy to the subdivision

The administrative and management session held on April 16th according to Chebilem Gordon, a regional councilor, remarked this move means taking ownership of their council

"We are beginning to take ownership of our community and I encourage my brothers and sisters still in the bush to join us so that together we build the Municipality of Bafut"

The 2020 administrative and management accounts of the Bafut Municipality stood at 787 million that saw the council put up a stiff fight against the coronavirus, open farm to market roads, build culverts and classrooms. A move the Mayor of Bafut, Ngwakongoh Lawrence says will continue

"We still have farm to market roads that will be looked into, portable water, electrification of some areas and medical equipment."

The council unfortunately had some of its credit cards sent back to Yaounde. A call Councilors say should not happen again.

On the front of the public investment budget, classrooms were constructed at GS Ntabuwe with benches, chairs and teachers desk provided. The Akossi drinking water supply project has been completed. That of Ndung stands at 30%. Municipal roads have also been rehabilitated.

The rural electrification of Nchoho village is now in its second phase with an execution rate of 85%. However, the same rural electrification project in Ngwa Eva, Agyati and Ntangoh is still at 50%.

These projects, the Councilors confess, is in the right direction to push the development of Bafut forward.
