Bamenda City Council: Rain, Insecurity Makes contract Execution Difficult

The prevailing insecurity in some parts of Bamenda and the coming of the rainy season has forced the slow pace of execution of some contracts within the Bamenda City Council area.

This was disclosed to city councillors at the midterm evaluation of council's activities for the year 2021.

Paul Achombong, City Mayor to the Bamenda City Council lamented that a bridge envisaged for the Ntaturu quarter cannot kick-off. He went further to say "portions of the fence constructed around the Bamenda City Council were brought down. If not of the resilience of the contractor, the project would have been abandoned" Paul Achombong told reporters.

The city Mayor has adopted an approach for contractors not to abandon projects.

This has led to the provision of a standby generator to the Bamenda Regional Hospital. The 200kv generator has helped the hospital to function admist the low voltage and load shading in Bamenda.

Some earth roads have received grading while the filling of potholes are ongoing in the city.

The city council has also engaged the planting of solar lights across the city of Bamenda.

On the issue of the tarring of the inner city road which has stopped, the city Mayor appreciated the Minister of State property, surveys and Land tenure for accepting the 30 metres wide road. The Mayor also explained that the compensation of those whose houses and property have been touched will be duly compensated.

Councillors urge the Mayor and the Senior Divisional Officer for Mezam to ensure the restriction of bikes announced last year is fully enforce. They say the lack of enforcement of recent has led to a rise in kidnapping around the city Centre.
